Carrion Call or How Would You Like Some Cheap Cards?

I keep my cards in cabinets.  The cabinets, they get full.  These full cabinets, they start screaming at night from indigestion.  As a collector and general furniture-narian, this concerns me.  I can't have cards living inside a tortured cabinet.  Where is the lacquered wood-anity?

I know what your next question is:  How can I help? Well, you can deem to put yourself ahead of their suffering.....have some card-passion.  I've spent the last three days freeing these cards from these ostensible prisons and began sorting.  They swam into their piles and made friends again with their teammates.  For too long, they have been separated by year, distance, and strangely dust-free boxes.  They can also peer ahead and see older versions of themselves or glance behind and wistfully dream of days that once were.

Of course, no one would dream of being caught inside a 2008 Topps card; it's so constricting.

Make your claim in the comments for your team (s) below; I've listed the estimated number of cards for each team.  Most are base cards from 2007-2011 with some 2012/2013 cards and 1994 Flair for some reason.  There may be some inserts; there are definitely Bowman prospects. There will be some duplicates.

If you're feeling charitable, please send $3.00 by Paypal to drauer at wustl dot edu to help cover shipping. This is strictly optional however.

You can send your address to the same email, put the subject of "Claim!" in the subject line so I can see it.

Make a claim before the end of January 2, I'll add some bonus cards which I haven't sorted through yet.

The count.

Braves-35
Marlins-31
Mets-41
Nationals-48
Cubs-25
Reds-49
Brewers-35
Pirates-43
Cardinals-43
Diamondbacks-38
Rockies-46
Dodgers-40
Padres-19
Giants-38
Orioles-38
Red Sox-21

White Sox-39
Indians-33
Tigers-40
Royals-34
Twins-40
Astros-19
Angels-54
