Trade – Daily Dimwit & Baseball Cards Rule

30 05 2011

I’ve been involved in a number of trades lately – I think this is primarily because I’ve been collecting Heritage and Gypsy Queen, so I’ve had immediate common interests with the bloggers out there.  I’m up to 25 “traders” in the links on the side – every time I finish up a trade with a new collector I add one there.  This trade is with Sam over at Daily Dimwit.

Sam and I swapped some Gypsies and a few Heritage.  Sam is collecting the Framed Paper set – which is a really great set.  I entertained the idea of collecting it myself; with only 100 cards it is a manageable parallel.  But then I decided, hey, it’s got 6 Reds, so I’ll just collect them.  I sent Sam the 11 Framed Paper cards I had that he needed.  He sent over some Heritage cards I needed, quite a few Gypsy inserts / SPs, and two Gypsy minis of my hometown Cincinnati Reds.  One of these is a photo variation of Scott Rolen – so that’s a good pickup.  I also sent over my David Ortiz photo variation – he’s not collecting those or anything, but Sam was basically kind enough to swap me one for the other and he can use that as trade bait.  Anyways, thanks Sam!

I also completed a trade with Ben from Baseball Cards Rule.  This was a trade that helps with my primary project – the base Topps sets.  I sent Ben some cards of players he collects; he sent me a bunch of ’83 Topps and a few ’80 Topps.  I’m now within 5 cards of completing the 1983 set – I’m really getting close on all of the 1980’s sets.
