I recently completed two more trades. The first was a trade with Clark from the blog Fantastic Catch. I had just recently found his blog, which may be due to all the Cardinals stuff in the background :). Fan of the evil Redbirds or not, Clark has a good blog and we made a great trade. Here’s some of the swag I got – a bunch of Topps inserts from the last three of years:
This was my 28th trade of the year – 2 away from my goal of 30, and we’re not even two-thirds of the way through the year! Thanks for the trade Clark!
My 29th trade completed was a 2011 Lineage trade with a reader Jerry (who must be a big George Brett fan based on his email address). Anyways, Jerry is going after the Master of all Master sets of the 2011 Lineage product – and I had a canary version (#/10) of the Jay Bruce 75 mini relic. I bought it on eBay almost a year ago, and I was thinking I wanted to have the regular relic version and the canary. Well, I kind of decided it wasn’t what I wanted – I’m going after some different autos / relics. One of them is a Monte Irvin ’52 auto, which I bought on eBay. The other is a card I got from Jerry below. But first – mini’s!!!! Jerry sent me about 20 of the ’75 mini parallels that I needed.
He also sent over a few more Lineage inserts – which gets me closer and closer to finishing my (less complicated) master set for this product!
I had a Votto relic on my wantlist, but that was a mistake – I was supposed to take that off when I re-focused the collection. But I may rethink that – Jerry threw this in one anyways!
And, last but certainly not least – the card I referenced above.
This was the one relic I definitely wanted – the Reggie. Why? It’s the one relic that has a different picture than the base card. I love a good old school relic, and the assortment of old school A’s uniforms are some of the coolest out there.
Thanks for the trade Jerry!
