Greg at Plaschke, Thy Sweater is Argyle recently swapped some Twins cards for some Dodgers cards. Turns out he lives in LA not far from where Mo and I had lived for a few months just after we were married, which brings back lots of memories.
My main draw in this trade was this Mauer Cabinet card (which made for some logistics finangling, given it’s larger size), but I’m a sucker for Opening Day cards, and Greg also hit my wantlists with a couple 1990’s cards and some early 2000’s needs, too.

I appreciate the time you spent digging through my wantlists, Greg — thanks again for the trade.
