It's that time of year for a gigantic trade post
About one year ago, I did my first ginormous trade post, combining several trades together.
I am sure that at least a few people consider lumping several trades into one monster post as "tacky."
To those people, I say "bite me." The massive trade post is my way of accomplishing several things at once. Specifically, I am able to contribute non-trade blog content while still thanking my fellow collectors for sending much needed cards my way.
If I didn't do things this way, you would be subjected to a never ending stream of trade posts. There wouldn't be room for anything else. So, as much as I would like to devote a single post to every single trade, I can't. It wouldn't achieve what I wanted to achieve and the blog would cease to be entertaining.
Besides one giant, massive trade post is FUN! It's EXCESS. We Americans like excess, don't we? Who doesn't love a deep-fried Snickers bar? Mashed potatoes on a hamburger? Gold foil on everything? That's good stuff.
So I present to you one heaping helping of trades. You will leave this post, feeling stuffed, queasy and maybe not wanting to see cards for a few hours. But you'll be back. Cards are too tasty to avoid forever.
