My LCS owner handed me a binder full of inserts and s#’d cards to see if I could get some interest in them. In the past, he has allowed me to “check out” cards, which I either trade (and pay him for) or return untraded (“sticks” and “boomerangs” we call them). Well, I’ve decided to begin listing them here at “é rayhahn, rayhahn” in hopes of turning them into Twins cards from my wantlists. You can easily get to the list just under “BASEBALL CARDS” in the dropdown at the top of each page. I’ve only got a couple teams there so far; if you have something to trade, let me know what other team(s) you’re looking for and I’ll add them. Thanks for looking!
As far as the trade: I completed a second trade with cardjim from Sports Card Arena. For a Cardinals AU and a couple sweet Brock GU cards, Jim sent me the cards below:
clockwise, from top left: 2005 Playoff Prime Cuts Timeline #T-23 Rod Carew [24/25] (dual jersey); 2003 Bowman’s Best #BB-JDD J.D. Durbin (auto); 2003 Topps Pristine Uncirculated Refractor #146 Jason Kubel [0297/1599]; 2008 Donruss Threads Century Proof Green #141 Brian Duensing [069/250]
Thanks again, Jim!
I’m currently watching a recording of a NOVA episode revolving around the separation of conjoined twins joined at the skull. Pretty fascinating, although I’m (intentionally) not paying the closest of attention to the surgical portions. Anyway, it’s somewhat appropriate given the two trade packages that arrived in today’s mail.
The first package was from cardjim, an administrator at Sports Card Arena, where I have been slowly finding my way around. Jim found a couple Twins autos while “dumpster diving” and became my first trading partner from SCA.
1996 Donruss Leaf Signature Series Bronze Matt Walbeck (auto); 1996 Donruss Leaf Signature Extended Chip Hale (auto)
The second conjoined Twins package came from Topher at Crackin’ Wax. The original trade was an autograph swap, Luke Hughes for Scott Baker, but when I threw in a few other cards, Topher felt compelled to also send Jesse as well. Unnecessary, but cool!
2007 Upper Deck MLB Artifacts Autofacts #AF-JC Jesse Crain (auto); 2007 Upper Deck MLB Artifacts Autofacts #AF-SB Scott Baker (auto)
Also, I had just participated in Topher’s BuBoBingo game; although I couldn’t play live, I had a fun time going through the game log to check if my card was a winner (not quite).
Thanks a lot for the trades, guys!
