A “Safe!” Call On A Play At The Plate

Over that past few weeks, I’ve been working on a trade with Play at the Plate, and we eventually worked out a Twins-for-Rangers (and Senators) swap.  Between vacations and battles with allergies, it may have taken a while to get done, but there are now lots of ’74 Rangers (and a few Senators) in a happier place, and an excellent variety of  Twins have come home to roost.

clockwise, from top left: 1998 Donruss Leaf Heading for the Hall #14 Paul Molitor [3167/3500]; 2000 Fleer Ultra Gold Medallion #89G Chad Allen; 1999 Pacific Omega #142 Paul Molitor; 1997 Donruss Preferred X-Ponential Power #2a Paul Molitor [1860/3000]

One of the cards was an auto (even though it was Adam “Worthless” Johnson’s autograph) and a few others were serial numbered.  I’m always torn when I get a neat “new” parallel, though: it’s nice to have picked up a card that I needed, but it possibly means my wantlist needs to be expanded to include the additional cards.

clockwise, from top left: 2004 Topps Chrome Black Refractor #372 Torii Hunter; 2001 Leaf Limited #272 Grant Balfour [113/1000]; 2000 Topps Golden Anniversary Autographs #GAA-AJ Adam Johnson; 2002 Fleer Box Score Amazing Greats Torii Hunter

By now I’m sure you’ve all seen Play at the Plate’s website and/or trades with other collectors; if you haven’t made any trades with him yet, and you have some Rangers/post-’60 Senators, why aren’t you contacting him?!  Thanks again, PatP.

  1. Play at the Plate

    Be careful about the nice things you say about Brian…he’ll get a big head. J/K….I’m glad the cards found a good home and I’ll be posting what you sent on Saturday.

  2. Brian is the best! Very nice stuff! I was way into those Heading for the Hall inserts back in 1998 and I still think they are pretty cool now. I also miss the Pacific products. Some were gaudy, but some were just plain sweet!!! Nice haul!
