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!
Below the break, a few more AU cards I’ve picked up lately, including the first of a few Twins players:
Another SportsCardFun trade, this time with zak4040, sending some Yankee cards for these and a 2007 Topps Morneau red letter parallel:
clockwise, from top left: 2005 Past Time Pennants Past Time Signatures Bronze #HR Kent Hrbek (auto); 2008 Topps Gold Foil #109 Joe Nathan; 2008 Topps Gold Foil #337 Livan Hernandez; 2008 Topps Update Gold Foil #UH30 Brendan Harris
A Hrbek auto; great trade!
A couple quick emails exchanged with hrabar2 after his SportsCardFun post, and I recieved the following cards (and a few others) for a couple Yankee Topps 60 relic cards:
clockwise, from top left: 2007 Upper Deck Masterpiece Captured on Canvas #CC-SA Johan Santana (jersey); 2005 Donruss Team Heroes Showdown Bronze #389 Brad Radke [067/100]; 2001 Donruss Class of 2001 #252 Adam Johnson [145/625]; 2010 Topps Gold #150 Joe Mauer [0506/2010]; 2005 Upper Deck All-Star Futures Gold #65 Joe Mauer [328/499]; 1998 Donruss Fractal Foundation #175 Paul Molitor [2178/3999]
Latest trade is from Drew at DREWSCARDS, where I found a couple Twins autos in his list of cards to trade. While we’ve tried half-heartedly to line up a trade before, when we initially didn’t see eye to eye on this trade, I threw some 2009 and 2010 Topps Gold Update cards to the pot, and the trade was on. Turns out, Drew threw some 2010 Topps 206 Twins back at me as well.
clockwise, from top left: 2008 Upper Deck A Piece of History Rookie Autograph Blue #127 Jose Morales [05/50]; 2009 SP Authentic Signatures #S-SL Kevin Slowey; 2010 Topps 206 #204 Justin Morneau; 2010 Topps 206 Bronze #6 Denard Span
Thanks again, Drew!
