And finally, trade packages #4 and #5, the last of the arrivals while I was snowbound in Omaha. The first was from hiflew at Cards from the Quarry, who had a series of trade bait posts where a Cuddyer jersey card and a Bartlett Topps Gold card caught my eye. He also had some Gold Foil parallel Twins, and in exchange I sent him some Rockies Gold. And I owe him a PTBNL, thanks to his generosity.

And last but not least, Matt, who apparently is TOO GOOD TO HAVE HIS OWN BLOG [ 😉 ], dropped a comment to a past post saying he had a card I might want; turns out it was a pretty blue Morneau with the piece of ash (below), which of course I did want. Matt threw in a few other Twins as well. Hopefully he’ll have a website in the future; we gave Shane enough pressure to create one — time to do the same with Matt!
