Go Cards! (The Team And The Cardboard Kind)

Until the completion of Spookymilk’s inaugural Play with the Prose challenge (in which I took 3rd out of 16), business trips, etc., I haven’t been able to post any trade posts for quite a while. Also, amazingly (or not, after last year’s success) the Cardinals are successfully moving along through the NL playoffs, so a shout out to them!

I’ve been trying to keep up the trade bait page, so give it a look and make an offer. Meanwhile, here are a few of my recent pickups. Besides some recent Topps Twins autograph cards and a slew of 90’s and early 2000’s Twins inserts and parallels, I was able to beef up my GU/AU/plates/uncirculated collection:

clockwise, from top left: 2012 Topps Retired Numbers #RN-RC Rod Carew (manu-patch); 2003 Topps Chrome Red Backs Relics #RBCR-TKH Torii Hunter (jersey); 2011 Topps Pro Debut Solo Signature #SSA-DBR David Bromberg (auto); 2008 Upper Deck X Signatures #BB Brian Bass (auto)

Trading lately has been pretty much on The Bench. I’ve found a number of traders with which to deal for Twins cards:

clockwise, from top left: 2002 Donruss Playoff Piece of the Game #POG-17 Cristian Guzman (jersey); 2005 Donruss Zenith Z-Jersey Prime #ZB-22 Shannon Stewart [130/150] (jersey); 2005 Fleer Showcase Wave of the Future Red #WF-JS Johan Santana [251/610] (jersey); 2005 Fleer Platinum Lumberjacks #LJ-JJ Jacque Jones (bat)

Look for card updates a little more often now…
