Making Trades Again "Barter King" Style: K2 Satellite Snowboard and K2 V9 Bindings


So I was just thinking the other day about how much I love Craigslist.org, and was talking with my plumber about it when he was over removing a toy one of my kids put down the toilet.  We got talking about the kinds of stuff you can buy and sell there.

Naturally, the vintagemonopoly.blogspot.com project I am working on came up.  Talking about it rekindled my passion for the trade, and I posted the trading cards from the previous trade on Craigslist on August 13, 2012.

By the next day I received two offers.

The trade offer I accepted was for a K2 Satellite Wide Snowboard.

I posted in the South Bend, Indiana Craigslist, and got a reply from a Waterlviet, Michigan man who wanted to trade this:
He originally got it from a storage unit auction, and had no interest in risking his life to the slopes, but he is an avid card collector, boasting a 500k+ card collection.  He was excited to make the trade and I wish him the best!

Here are the K2 Satellite Wide Specs:

Victor, an avid card collector from Watervliet, MI was happy to
make the trade of his snowboard for these 5,000 trading cards.

See what I traded to get this awesome snowboard 

The name of the game is bigger and better folks!
