Last fall, I pulled a Chris Johnson jersey/auto redemption card from a Topps pack, and of course I knew that Double-D (The Daily Dimwit) would like it. I let him know it was his for the taking, and when the card (finally!) arrived from Topps, we wrapped a trade around it. Not only did Dimwit have a great Puckett relic card to exchange, but he found a Twins silk card from this year’s Topps as well, and included several Gypsy Queen cards. I dropped by the LCS and snagged what I could find for his Kimball Mini and Gypsy Queen wantlists — hopefully I found enough to pass back from my end of the swap.

You always seem to make for smooth trades, Double-D; hope your “hostages” arrive there unharmed!
