Benched!

Here are a couple more of the multiple trades I’ve been putting together since joining The Bench. First, my old friend ED HENDERS found a few more Barry Bonds cards that he needed, and exchanged a wad of Johan Santana Moments & Memories cards for them. I’d previously traded with Ed at Sportscardfun.


thirteen 2008 Topps Moments & Milestones #87 Johan Santana [#/150] and three 2008 Topps Moments & Milestones #87 Johan Santana [#/25]

The second trade was a beaut: I stumbled upon a post by Brettfan not too long after it had gone up, and after scanning the list and realizing I had very few of the Twins cards she’d listed, I put out a hesitant “yes” towards them, waiting to see if her asking price would be as good as claimed. When she asked for $18.50 (delivered!), it was a no-brainer.

  1. Glad another blogger found the card forums, they can be really fun! I’m more a Blowout guy than a Bench guy, but that’s because I like all the silly drama and ridiculousness that Blowout offers. The Bench has some awesome deals on it though – I’ve had a few good transactions through that site!

  2. “The Bench” is a great trading site, I’ve been a member over there for a few years now and have received thousands of cards through great trades.

    It’s a fantastic community over there.
