Got a lot of trades in the works lately, and packages seem to arrive en masse when I’m on my Omaha business trips. I joke with Mo that she needs to take a shipping dolly out to the mailbox with her to schlep them all back to the house. Well, this past trip was no different (except that it didn’t blizzard in Omaha while I was there!) — here is the first package that came in:
The LCS had a Rickie Weeks relic card, and I noticed that Cameron at Cardboard Heaven had Weeks in his PC list, so I contacted him about a trade. Cameron responded favorably, and had several nice Twins cards to trade, so I expanded my offering to include some Gwynn cards and others. On his end, he sent several Bowman cards from my wantlists, a nice Mauer and Carew card (I grew up idolizing Carew), and some SP Rookie Edition cards:

BTW, am I the only one confused by Bowman? Not only do I have problems telling one year from the next, but what’s up with Bowman Prospects, Bowman Draft Picks, Bowman Draft Picks & Prospects, Bowman IDK WTF?
clockwise, from top left: 2002 Topps Gallery #186 Joe Mauer; 2009 SP Legendary Cuts #106 Rod Carew [345/550]; 2006 Topps Chrome Xfractor #113 Torii Hunter; 2010 Topps Bowman Gold #34 Michael Cuddyer
Thanks again, Cameron!
