Here's some stuff that I've been searching on eBay. Photos will link to current eBay Listings.
Check out this Kobe card! It's a little expensive, but it's a cool crossover card and I can see why the price is up there. Any Kobe collector would love this one I think.
Bowman Draft means the recent Draft Class. #1 Pick Jackson Holliday's 1st cards are here!
You may have heard me bring up the Heritage High Number Mega Boxes. They come with the Blue Sparkle Refractors which seem to be pretty sweet looking. The J-Rod is priced crazy either. Might be a good Color Match Rookie Refractor to grab of his. Unlike his Sapphire Base RC.
One more favor to ask, if you use eBay for purchasing singles and stuff. Please book mark this link for when you search and I will get a small commission from eBay. Doesn't charge anything extra for your purchase but will be an easy way to support the site. THANK YOU!
Just a few cards from my PC that I wanted to show you all this week. The Beastie Boys custom card is from NinePockets and I'm pretty happy with it. Ordered it from eBay and this feels like a real Topps card and back design is really nice too.
- Was never a huge Longoria fan, Eva or Evan, but this card is just a great conversation piece.
- An early Greinke Future Stars #'d /1350 from his first stint with the Royals.
- Sepia Stadium Club of Beltre deeking out Andrus. If you've never seen Adrian Beltre mess around on the field, it's one of my favorite things about baseball in the last 5-10 years. Give it a watch. I'll make it easy
Two additions to the 2022 Variation Guide

Finally checked out CardSnoop to check sold listings, so far I'm pretty impressed with it. It seems quicker and easier to navigate than other pricing tools I've seen in the past. So if you haven't played around on there, it might be worth checking out.
THE CARD SWAP: 2023
Big plans for the The Card Swap in 2023. After hitting the 1000 break milestone, I'd really like to grow the site/channel some more. Planning on doing more YouTube content and considering doing more of a "show". Going to work on learning some video editing and see how it goes. Stay tuned for more updates.
Twitter is going be my primary social media place. I'll still post to IG, FB, and Reddit, but Twitter is going to be my go-to and will be used for promotion and card chat. Discord and FB Group will also be huge priorities as well.
LOOKING FOR 5 VOLUNTEERS
Been on the site before? Never been in a break or bought singles? Looking for 5 people that I've never worked with before to check out the site and give me some feedback. Free Break or Cards for participating!
Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you're interested!
I'll be looking to grow the team. I'm spread pretty thin right now and will need help if the site is going to grow. Here are some positions I'll be looking to hire for. Would be good side hustles for anyone looking to get extra money or cards.
- SINGLES COORDINATOR -
Someone to purchase and post singles to the site.
Pay will be "per card listed"
- BLOG WRITER -
Looking forward someone to write Blogs and add content to the blog.
Shoot me an email email@example.com if you're interested in working together!
That's it for this week's News Swap! Come back for frequent visits, should always be something for you to check out. Plus I'll make updates at the top for anyone checking days after posting.
Made the Favorite Insert Info into a Blog entry with a few new additions!
Thanks everyone for reading and continuing to support the newsletter, website, and channel!
