This Trade Will Rule

It figures that a trailblazer like Thorzul from Thorzul Will Rule would be the first to take me up on my relic swap offer, and in a short time we had ourselves a trade. In trying to decide what else to throw in with the Gallardo relic card, I tried to think what else he might want that he might not already have. In looking through my Brewers stack, I decided on some UD Documentary (I know he loves those!) and 2010 Opening Day cards to maximize my postage. Thorzul, on the other hand, one-upped me:

clockwise, from top left: 2006 Upper Deck Gold #898 Johan Santana checklist [149/299]; 2009 Upper Deck A Piece of History Stadium Scenes #SS-JM Jim Mauer/Metrodome; 2006 Upper Deck Gold #697 Luis Rodriguez [233/299]; 2007 Upper Deck Sweet Spot Sweet Swatch #SW-MO Justin Morneau

Serial # cards? Seriously? Well, I love whittling away at the parallel sets, so that was a pretty sweet swap, dude. I owe you!


Thorzul Will Rule: Trade Me Anything III

Well, this is one baseball card trade that was a bit different. Thorzul over at Thorzul Will Rule is in his third incarnation of his “Trade Me Anything” series. Noticing that he had a Twins card that I lacked, I took him up on his offer and traded him a Eugene, OR to Vancouver, BC Amtrak schedule (plus a couple Brewers items). As the sixth person to trade on this go-round, here is what I received in return:

2009 Topps Update Gold #UH166 Mike Redmond [677/2009]

I’m really surprised this card is an update; didn’t Topps have enough cards in their base set to include the backup catcher, particularly one who’s a veteran and been on the team for several years? I guess not.

Anyway, this was a lot of fun, Thorzul, and I’ll look forward to it the next time it comes around.  Best of luck in your collecting!
