These Cards Are Uncalled For!

FYI, a couple more teams have been added to my trade bait page in hopes of turning them into Twins cards from my wantlists.

Lately, I’ve been scrambling to come up with cards to send back as part of PTBNL trade packagess, and here are the most recent two:

First, hiflew of Cards from the Quarry sent me cards from JABO’s break; he had the Twins, and besides some Bazooka singles and a Mauer refractor, he ended up with a beautiful Scott Baker By The Letter manupatch/auto. I went through my Rockies trade bait and hopefully put together an appropriate response package. Yes, UD Doc cards were included!

Then, Night Owl from Night Owl Cards sent me a little package of Twins. I hear his whining about never coming up with any Twins to trade to me, and yet he had a goodly amount of this year’s Heritage base, a Topps Gold card, and even a couple UD Doc Gold singles that I needed. Again, I hope my return package aptly rewards that effort.

clockwise, from top left: 2006 Topps Gold #489 Jason Bartlett [1615/2006]; 2008 Upper Deck Documentary Gold #3680 Joe Mauer; 2012 Topps Opening Day Mascots #M-19 TC; 2012 Topps Heritage mini sticker #35 Joe Mauer

Thanks guys — check your mail in the next few days!

One last thing: I came up with another card collecting term that I think has been much needed. You know those unfortunate cards (usually relics) picturing a ballplayer in one uniform, but listing the player on a different team? What to call it? A cross-dresser card
