The Rules:
1. feel free to send as many cards off of my want list as you would like
or
2. send 1 card. That's right, 1 card only! It doesn't have to be a super refracting auto bit, but it could be. Send 1 card that you think I might enjoy. It doesn't have to be a Met, but it could be. 1 card! It doesn't have to be a 1988 Donruss Tim Teufel, but it could be. (On second thought, don't send me a 1988 Donruss Tim Teufel)
