A Smed Package from the Heart of Twins Territory

I recently completed a trade with Smed at (where else?) Smed’s Baseball Card Blog, and when the package arrived and I opened it, the first thing I had to say was, “Dude, you sent too much!” The second thing I had to say was, “Thanks!” We had agreed in general on what we were swapping, but with a couple relics among the bonus cards, I was very pleasantly surprised.

clockwise, from top left: 2007 Upper Deck SP Rookie Edition auto #179 Glen Perkins; 2005 Upper Deck Pros & Prospects Tier 1 #113 J.D. Durbin [335/999], how’s that “Real Deal” working out, J.D.?; 2009 Upper Deck UD Game Jersey Triple Swatch #GJ-JN Joe Nathan [29/99]; 2008 Topps Chrome Trading Card History #TCHC9 Joe Mauer

Smed included a lot of cool stuff besides the relics & serial#’d stuff: some 2010 Topps Opening Day and Heritage, several parallel cards, some wantlist miscellania, and even a few cheap vintage Twins that I needed but hadn’t been pursuing.

clockwise, from top left: 1998 Fleer Molten Medal #25 Chuck Knoblauch, OMG, they amputated your right leg at the knee!; 2006 Fleer Ultra Gold Medallion #167 Brad Radke; 2009 Upper Deck USA Baseball National Team Game Jersey #USA-KG Kyle Gibson; 2010 Topps Attax Opening Day Joe Mauer

Get that ridiculously large wantlist spreadsheet updated, Smed, because I need to send off a make-good package… 😉
