With a vacation coming up (more on this in a future post), I mailed off several packages to get them on their way, and a corresponding flurry of them arrived here as well.
Dhoff at Coot Veal and the Vealtones is one of the most patient traders out there, and I put his patience to the test, as we casually threw emails back and forth over the course of a couple months, finally pulling the trigger just recently. I got a fine collection of Twins (some pictured below), and several Tigers and Cabreras are on their way to him shortly.

In addition, I found some more Braves and Phillies cards for BobFranklin, and we swung yet another little trade. Bob threw in a couple nice Benson cards in as well.
