I’m currently watching a recording of a NOVA episode revolving around the separation of conjoined twins joined at the skull. Pretty fascinating, although I’m (intentionally) not paying the closest of attention to the surgical portions. Anyway, it’s somewhat appropriate given the two trade packages that arrived in today’s mail.
The first package was from cardjim, an administrator at Sports Card Arena, where I have been slowly finding my way around. Jim found a couple Twins autos while “dumpster diving” and became my first trading partner from SCA.

The second conjoined Twins package came from Topher at Crackin’ Wax. The original trade was an autograph swap, Luke Hughes for Scott Baker, but when I threw in a few other cards, Topher felt compelled to also send Jesse as well. Unnecessary, but cool!

Also, I had just participated in Topher’s BuBoBingo game; although I couldn’t play live, I had a fun time going through the game log to check if my card was a winner (not quite).
Thanks a lot for the trades, guys!
