To continue a year-long theme, the trade packages always seem to arrive when I’m on business in Omaha. This time was no different, with three of them waiting on the kitchen island for me. Presented in no particular order:
1. Scottie has a trading page at SportsCardFun, and a post advertising some AU/GU for trade caught my eye. Some Braves relics and a Cardinals autograph card netted these:
clockwise, from top left: 2009 Bowman Chrome Draft Picks & Prospects #BDPP80 Matt Bashore (auto); 2002 Upper Deck SPx #131 Kevin Frederick (auto); 2007 Upper Deck Goudey Materials #95 Torii Hunter (jersey); 2009 Upper Deck SPx Game Jersey #GJ-FL Francisco Liriano (jersey);
Yet another quality trade from a SportsCardFun trader — thanks Scottie.
2. Ron at NYBBNUTT’s Baseball Card Trading Page took a bite of my food Trade Bait post, expressing interest in the Kellogg’s Harrelson card, offering a Topps Gold Label insert and several Pacific cards from my wantlists:
clockwise, from top left: 1999 Pacific Omega #139 Brad Radke; 2000 Topps Gold Label End of the Rainbow #ER8 Ruben Salazar; 1998 Pacific Omega #144 Brad Radke; 1998 Pacific Invincible Diamond Gems #65 Molitor;
I knew from a previous trade that Ron collected Yanks and Mets, so hopefully I did okay on the return package. Thanks for initiating this one, Ron.
3. Everyone knows and loves the Daily Dimwit. Well, after I held up an Astros redemption card at him last winter, he returned the favor and tempted me with a Twins redemption card. I finally rousted up something to trade to him, and we threw a couple other cards in and got them out the door. Double D sent me these below, as well as a Gypsy Queen red back mini:
clockwise, from top left: 2005 Bowman Draft Picks & Prospects Signs of the Future #SOF-JJ Justin Jones (auto); 2002 Upper Deck Diamond Connection Diamond Collection #547 Eric Milton [133/775] (jersey); 2011 Topps Diamond Anniversary #339 Alexi Casilla; 2010 Topps Chrome #187 Luke Hughes (auto)
Glad your move to Alabama went okay, Dimwit; looking forward to our next trade!
