I love getting trade requests in my inbox, and the one from “The Snob” at The Baseball Card Snob was unexpected but gladly accepted. Snob had done his homework, digging through my wantlists and trade bait page and presenting an amicable deal.
Here’s a diverse sampling of what he sent:
clockwise, from top left: 2012 Topps Gold #389 Alexi Casilla [1205/2012]; 2001 Pacific #238 Jay Canizaro; 2000 Upper Deck SP Authentic #32 Corey Koskie; 2006 Topps Bazooka Blue Fortune #183 Shannon Stewart; 1996 Fleer Flair Gold #114 Dave Hollins; 2002 Upper Deck Hobby Plus #UD32 Corey Koskie [0245/1125]; 2005 Upper Deck SPx #70 Justin Morneau; 1997 Donruss Leaf #298 Roberto Kelly
Thanks for the swap, Paul!
