Default The ultimate trade up

Ok so I am going to try something out.

I am attempting to trade up to a 52 Topps Mantle by years end.

I always watched that show and wanted to try it out, and after trading at the Hofstra show the other day it gave me this idea.

I am offering this beautiful T-205 WOJO graded SGC 40. Beautiful card.

I will take the best trade offered to me.

Obviously the WOJO is a easy sell, for whoever gets it. Let's make a deal and watch me get this MANTLE!

This thread would generally go in the BST section. Since it's kind of different let's let it be here this time. If anyone doesn't like it please contact management for a full refund of your membership dues . Please though, this isn't an open invitation to sell on the front page. You will be beaten severely, above the neck, with a wet noodle if you do. Good luck in the Trade-Up!! (And if this thing gets out of hand it can easily be moved at any time.)

I understand the trading up, but I don't think I have ever seen someone be so blatant about wanting to rip someone off before.

This requires other people to trade down and lose value. I don't like losing money. Maybe there are others that don't mind or don't have an eye on it.

I am curious to see where this goes.

I am not asking for anything in particular. Yes someone would lose value, but a Wojo is a lot easier move for someone than a card they have been trying to move for a year of a high grade nobody etc.

Even if someone would rather have a Wojo than what they currently have and not want to spend the money to get one.

I am not picky so I will take basically anything worth more

This goal will be tough to achieve making trades with people on Net54.

Probably. But hey, at least I know someone will want this first card.

Kind of thread that could lead to someone quitting the board forever. Just sayin'.

It would be easier if you did away with the 1:1 idea. You should trade one card for groups of cards and try to spread out some profit. Nobody is willing to take a hit on one card, but someone might not mind losing $ on a group of unimportant cards if they are getting one great card in return.

I remember a few years ago someone on the CU board did a similar thing. I don't recall exactly how far they got, but I believe they made a pretty good attempt. The key I think would be to not limit what you'll take and to be open to any type of offer. I think as you get further along it will get more difficult, but in the end, I think you might be surprised. Besides, that's a nice Johnson to start from!
