I noticed that Ray had a Twins relic on his trade bait page at Shot Not Taken, and after a couple emails, we had a trade. Then Ray looked into his cards a little further, and besides a couple other Twins cards he had a Bazooka back Allen & Ginter mini. Sure, it was Brian Duensing, but still — I came up with something else to include from my end, addresses were exchanged, and we had ourselves a trade.
clockwise, from top left: 1994 Pinnacle Naturals #11 Kirby Puckett; 2008 Upper Deck X #UDXM-BB Boof Bonser (jersey); 2009 Topps Allen & Ginter mini Bazooka back #263 Brian Duensing [24/25], back & front; 2009 Upper Deck Goodwin Champions mini #107 Joe Nathan
Nailed a ’90s card I needed, a jersey card, and my first Bazooka back — Ray knows all the requirements of a well-balanced
breakfast trade. Thanks for taking a shot, Ray!
