Pitching From Blackness: A Dark Trade

When Derek from Tomahawk Chopping – Cardboard & More pointed out a couple Twins chrome refractor cards he had, I countered with a Marty Prado relic in my possession. I already had one of the refractors, but Derek sent several base cards I needed, as well as…something else. Derek turned to the dark side of trading, and sent some Topps Walmart Black parallels. Now, this is a false night time that I’m sure Night Owl frowns on. Well, even though there are other parallel cards from a fine Minnesota-based company (say, Target Retro, for example) that are far superior, these, uh, black beauties below were appreciated. (Orange Refractor shown for darkness reference)

(btw, thanks, Derek. No, really!)
