Night Owl Cards

Monday’s mail brought a package from Night Owl over at Night Owl Cards, the latest trade over the web – this time Twins for mostly 1971 cards from my childhood.  Night Owl whacked a few cards from my wantlist, plus a few that hadn’t made it onto the list yet.

Night Owl cards
clockwise, from upper left: 2009 Topps Toppstown Blue #TTT26 Joe Mauer; 2007 Bowman’s Best #6 Joe Mauer; 2006 Topps Gold #78 Nick Punto [359/2006] – not often you see “Punto” and “gold” together; 2007 Upper Deck Ultimate Collection swatch #SM-FL Francisco Liriano

It turns out that there is a Toppstown Blue parallel, too.

Night Owl cards
clockwise, from upper left: 2008 Tristar #110 Ben Revere – my first Revere card?; 2009 Upper Deck 20th Anniversary #2221 Joe Mauer; 2000 Upper Deck Gold Reserve #101 Brad Radke, I’ll take any excuse to post Brad; 2009 Upper Deck O-Pee-Chee #129 Carlos Gomez – GoGo, sad to see you go

Night Owl has a whole lot going on at his website — check it out, and make a trade with him, while you’re at it.  He has the Runner Seal of Approval (whatever that is).  Thanks again, N.O.

  1. Starting the Ben Revere collection early, eh? I like him.

    At the Beloit games we went to, he was ‘the guy’ on the Snappers. You could tell the crowd believed he could do anything (kind of like that guy on the card next to his).

    • Carlos Gomez? 😉

      Well, I collect TWINS cards, so if Revere is a Twin on the card, well, he has a place in my collection.

      I’ve liked Revere since he was picked (unlikely a pick as he was), and I’m looking forward to seeing him on the big team someday soon.

  2. I share your thoughts on Radke. I hate to see any Radke go. But it was for the greater cause.
