Trade Me Anything XVI Has Arrived!

This is a really good part of the year.  Right around Halloween weekend each year, life stops being one of those insanely difficult Mario Maker levels you might have seen where nearly every square inch of screen space is covered in rotating blades of fire, and starts feeling more like World 1-1.  (Or at least maybe like something in World 4 or 5.)  Two kids' soccer seasons are over (well, it's never over, just scaled back to one practice a week and no weekend games yet), parent/teacher conference nights are in the rear view mirror, and the weather starts to cooperate with a guy like me whose internal thermostat always runs hot.  I can see Thanksgiving in the not-too-far-off distance, and a nice Christmas break soon after that.  The Packers suck, the Bucks are laying waste to the league without two of our best shooters, and we're mere weeks away from rightfully reclaiming Paul Bunyan's Axe.  Oh, and the World Cup will provide a nice distraction, too.

This is also Trade Me Anything season.  This year this oldest child of mine is old enough to get her driver's license.  Come celebrate TMA's Sweet Sixteen by trading me absolutely anything.  Rules, as always, are below.
1. Check out the list of available cards below. Select one (or a few) you want. Just remember, the more you claim, the better your trade material should be.

2. Send me an email with your choice of card(s) at or DM me on Twitter @THORZUL
Please don't leave a request comment on the blog. This just confuses people, so don't do it, it will just be deleted and will not count.

3. I will reply to you as to the card's availability. First come, first serve. I will include my mailing address.

4. When I confirm the card of your choice, pick out one or more of your own cards or anything else you want to send me. A few guidelines about what you can't send: Nothing that should really be in the garbage, nothing perishable, and nothing illegal. (Notice I didn't say nothing immoral.) I've got a want list you can check out, too!

5. Send me whatever is was you picked out. Don't tell me what it is before you send it, I'd like to have it be a surprise! Include a SASE or you won't be getting your card.

6. When I receive your item, I will take a picture of the trade materials and post the happy couple on my blog, and then I will send you the card. Here are the cards you may choose from. Cards that have officially been claimed are in BOLD

  1. It gives me a warm feeling inside that the only Yankee that has been claimed is Locastro.
