It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas...Operation PWE Begins

Aloha, everybody, 

I'm happy to announce ATBATT's 3rd Annual Operation PWE is now underway. 

I've got just about everything enveloped and packaged up. Boy, that was an adventure. Take a look...

And that's just the PWE's.  

I went through my roster of past trade partners to choose who would be included in this year's offerings. I added a few new bloggers to the OPWE list, so check your emails for my request for your mailing address. I sent those requests today, so you only have to check for one day. 

I scoured your wantlists and tried very hard to only include cards you're actively seeking. I did my best to not blast anyone with a handful of commons that you neither need nor want. 

This year there are more than just PWE's. Some of you will be receiving humble packages as well...

I won't keep you all in suspense about who's on the list, and besides that, I need new addresses in case you moved since our last trade. So here's the list of recipients for this year's Operation PWE...

Baseball Card Breakdown
Dime Boxes
Torren' Up Cards
Bob Walk the Plank
Night Owl Cards
Remember the Astrodome
Wrigley Roster Jenga
My Sports Obsession
Jay Barker Fan's Junk
$30 a Week Habit
The Angels in Order
I Love the Smell of Cardboard in the Morning
Play at the Plate

and readers Roger M and Chris W. 


Remember, if you've moved since our last trade, or you just want to be sure, shoot an email to me. My email address is omsports42 at g mail dot you know. 

If I didn't include you, and we've traded before, there are a few reasons for that. One is your blog has been inactive (for at least the past six months), or you retired from blogging/trading and you let us know (more on that in another post). 

The other reason goes back to what I said about trying to be respectful of your wantlists. Unfortunately, there were a few of you whom I just didn't seem to have anything that you were seeking. 

Also, the grim reality of low finances is currently over my head, so I needed to keep shipping costs as low as possible. My old lady would still probably kill me if she saw the total shipping bill, but that's our secret. 

All of that said, I've still got a few cards available for trade, as in this entire box.

 I've got cards for every team, and I just might have what you need.  If we haven't traded before, reach out and let's get started. 2017 is just around the corner. 

(I expect the first batch of goods to go out within a week or so.) 



  1. I see my blog on the list! Thanks!

    1. Yup, and I was busy checking your wantlist too. I'll keep on checking there and keep you in mind till I can match that list.

    2. My want list hasn't seen a lot of action lately - I've barely had time to even touch my cards, let alone do anything about them! Hopefully once the semester is over (and my lesson planning is caught up) I can back to baseball cards (and blogging). I love seeing the Christmas cheer though. :)

  3. Thanks for including little old me! I'll make sure to gather up some quality Dodger cards in return.

    1. Thanks, I appreciate that - but don't feel an obligation, T.
      This is just my humble Christmas thing to give something back to our little ol' community.

  4. Well done! One of these days you and I need to look into trading beer.

    1. I'm always keeping that in mind, Matt. I'm gettin' prepped for our first trade step by step :)

  5. Sweet! Similarly, I need to get my own Holiday Blast mailings into gear.

  6. I totally missed that I was on this list until you posted the Zip Codes images. Thanks!
