I'm BACK! And so is my trading quest!Okay, so it’s been almost five months since I’ve made a post, and more than eight months since I’ve made any progress in my quest to trade my way from a sixty cent check from an Internet poker room for a seat in the World Series of Poker.
But that doesn’t mean I’ve given up.
In fact, just yesterday, I made my fifth swap in my journey.
That’s right. Yesterday afternoon I traded a limited edition Super Bowl XXXVI football signed by Adam Vinatieri and a signed picture of Rodney Harrison for a 1993 bottle of Dom Perignon Cuvée.
Jason, a Providence, RI, resident, made the trade with me in a park in the city’s East Bay as the sun set. Jason and his wife were given the bottle as a gift for their wedding anniversary. But Jason’s wife has been sober for four years, so they didn’t have much use for a bottle of the world’s most famous champagne.
But Jason does happen to be a big New England Patriots fan (I didn’t tell him that I was a Giants fan … sorry Jason!), so the trade was a perfect fit for both parties!
So now, for a quick recap, I’ve traded a sixty cent check from an Internet poker room for a set of custom poker chips for a ABA basketball signed by the 1975-76 Indiana Pacers for two pieces of Jimi Hendrix’s childhood home for a Super Bowl XXXVI football signed by former Patriots kicker Adam Vinatieri (and a signed picture of Rodney Harrison) for a 1993 bottle of Dom Perignon Cuvée.
As always, I’m interested in hearing all kinds of trade offers. The “value” of what you’re trading doesn’t matter. The only thing that matters is that it gets me closer to my goal of trading my way to a seat in the World Series of Poker.
Oh, and another caveat. For this trade, you’ll have to be legal drinking age.
So send any offers to . I’m looking forward to seeing what you have to offer!
