I'm going to try something here, hopefully it will works. I've been lucky enough to pull a few printing plates over the years but almost all of them are for players/teams I don't collect and trading these are difficult because placing a trade value on them is nearly impossible.
Since almost every release has printing plates inserted in them and they're becoming more prevalent, I was thinking of starting a thread where people can post the Sport/Team/Player of the plates they've pulled, to see if they can trade printing plates this way. Plates can be Common/Semistar/Superstar based on the base card they were used for, and 1-for-1 trades can be made that way. I'd be more than willing to trade away a plate for a plate if I'm getting a plate back of a player/team I collect. You might even be able to a three way deal if enough plates are posted.
So here's my list, I'd be looking for players/teams in my signature with the exception of the Golden State Warriors (I don't really collect Warriors but they're the local team...if that's all you have let me know, so maybe) This might be like finding a needle in a haystack but it beats digging through buckets and whatnot!
