A World Series Preview Trade

Little did we know when we started this trade that our respective “home towns” would be meeting in the World Series. Brian at Play at the Plate sent the cards below plus some of this year’s Bowman Twins in exchange for four GU/AU and some assorted A-Rod and Topps Gold singles. We have both been very civilized about the World Series, with me giving my wishes to Brian that the Rangers don’t embarrass themselves too badly, while Brian equally voiced his sincere concern that the Cardinals’ self-esteem would not be utterly destroyed. Would that the rest of the world got along as well as we do… 🙂

Seriously Brian, best of luck, and thanks for the trade!

  1. I grabbed the Twins hoping for some Mauer mojo, but I was glad to get the Hunter and send it on to a good home.

  2. Those Bakers and Hunter look oddly familiar… 😉

    Glad they ended up in your hands David! Somehow I knew Brian grabbed the Twins for trading purposes!

    Oh, and I really hope the Cardinals don’t have their collective self-esteem shattered either… Texas guys gotta stick together, right?
