Tag Archives: “O” No!!! Another Orioles Blog

An Excuse To Quote Dr. Strangelove

Ryan H. has been hiding out some Twins trade bait over at “O” No!!! Another Orioles Blog, it appears. To paraphrase Dr. Strangelove: “Of course, the whole point of a Doomsday Machine Twins trade bait is lost if you keep it a secret! Why didn’t you tell the world, EH?

Why, indeed? Well, a little snooping at his blog and the gig was up. Ryan put together a nice package (see some below) and I was able to counter by putting a few Orioles cards in a better place.

clockwise, from top left; 2003 Bowman Futures Game #FG-MR Mike Restovich (jersey); 2009 Upper Deck Icons Future Foundations #FF-JM Joe Mauer (jersey); 2010 Bowman Chrome Prospects Purple Refractor #BCP76 James Beresford [344/999]; 2010 Bowman Topps 100 #TP94 Ben Revere; 2010 Bowman Draft Picks Blue Border #BDP92 Alex Burnett [119/399]; 3022 Bowman Chrome Futures Die Cut Refractor #18 Miguel Sano

Thanks! And advertise that trade bait a little better, dude. 😉

“O” No!!! Another Lame Trade Post Title

Ryan from “O” No!!! Another Orioles Blog sent me an email to bounce a trade off me, which I was more than happy to entertain. While I was piecing together some of the cards on his wantlists, his package arrived here with a slew of Twins. The lion’s share were Bowman singles from several years (I’ve said it before: I don’t entirely get Bowman), as well as various other brands. Time to hit my LCS for some more wantlist items, it appears.

clockwise, from top left: 1997 Bowman Best Preview Atomic Refractor #BBP-13 Todd Walker; 2011 Topps Heritage Black Border #C74 Joe Mauer; 2009 Bowman Orange #125 Carlos Gomez [016/250]; 2000 Bowman Chrome Retro/Future #131 Corey Koskie; 2006 Upper Deck #279 Lew Ford; 1999 Fleer Sports Illustrated #25 Paul Molitor

Interestingly, I received the non-Atomic Refractorized Todd Walker preview card just last week. Did you leave this card in your window for a few years, Ryan? Todd looks a little washed out. Thankfully I had this waldo on site so as to avoid the radiation.

Thanks, Ryan — your return package is being built even as we speak.
