Lately, I’ve been scrambling to come up with cards to send back as part of PTBNL trade packagess, and here are the most recent two:
First, hiflew of Cards from the Quarry sent me cards from JABO’s break; he had the Twins, and besides some Bazooka singles and a Mauer refractor, he ended up with a beautiful Scott Baker By The Letter manupatch/auto. I went through my Rockies trade bait and hopefully put together an appropriate response package. Yes, UD Doc cards were included!
Then, Night Owl from Night Owl Cards sent me a little package of Twins. I hear his whining about never coming up with any Twins to trade to me, and yet he had a goodly amount of this year’s Heritage base, a Topps Gold card, and even a couple UD Doc Gold singles that I needed. Again, I hope my return package aptly rewards that effort.
clockwise, from top left: 2006 Topps Gold #489 Jason Bartlett [1615/2006]; 2008 Upper Deck Documentary Gold #3680 Joe Mauer; 2012 Topps Opening Day Mascots #M-19 TC; 2012 Topps Heritage mini sticker #35 Joe Mauer
Thanks guys — check your mail in the next few days!
One last thing: I came up with another card collecting term that I think has been much needed. You know those unfortunate cards (usually relics) picturing a ballplayer in one uniform, but listing the player on a different team? What to call it? A cross-dresser card
