About the beginning of this year I approached Tom at The Angels, In Order about a Twins/Angels swap, and probably against his better judgement, he took me up on it anyway. Once we finally dotted the I’s and crossed the T’s, I’m not sure how Tom sits with his end of the trade, but I’m tickled pink with all the nooks and crannies of my wantlists that he was able to fill in.

Bonus points given out for: 80’s cards I needed, some cards I hadn’t put in my wantlists yet, an Ultra Platinum Medallion, and especially a UD Documentary card! 😉 Kudos also for some 90’s Knoblauch insert cards.

I’ll be sure to keep my Angels cards separated for future trades, Tom — thanks again!
