Continuing from the previous post…
Package #6 was from yet another Sports Card Arena trade. serputzalot is a big-time Hanley Ramirez collector, and was interested in the Turkey Red cabinet card that my LCS owner let me have at a great price. The artist autograph and s#’d to 25 had a pretty stable price on eBay, so using that I chose three GU cards in trade. When a dual Killebrew/Morneau turned up missing, I was able to substitute for a couple nice AU and another Killebrew in its stead.
clockwise, from top left: 2006 Upper Deck Epic Materials Dark Purpel #EM-HK Harmon Killebrew [049/115] (jersey); 2005 Upper Deck Baseball Heroes Bronze #32 Harmon Killebrew [33/50] (jersey); 2010 Bowman Sterling #34 Danny Valencia (auto); 2001 Donruss Classics Benchmarks #BM-20 Kirby Puckett (stadium seat); 2008 Upper Deck SPx Young Star Signatures #AC Alexi Casilla (auto)
And as fine as this trade turned out to be, Package #7 was bigger…
