In mid-June I finished up a trade with Tom from the Waiting ’til Next Year blog. Tom is, as you can guess from the name, a big Cubs fan. I can sympathize a bit as my mom grew up in Chicago and I now live 2 blocks from Wrigley. My sympathy ends there, however; I love that the Cubs have been the team that always seems to get my Reds back on track :)!
Regardless of all that, it looks like the Cubs will be waiting at least one more year. But that doesn’t mean Tom and I can’t swap players. There were two key cards at the center of this trade; I saw the following Eric Davis he’d pulled from an Archives pack:
That was the impetus for the trade. On my end, I had a Ron Santo jersey card from SP Legendary Cuts that I’ve had for a long time. It’s a good card, but getting that Davis from the 1987 Topps design was well worth it to me! I also sent Tom a random assortment of Cubbies, and he sent me a few Topps inserts and a Joey Votto Bowman card:
Thanks for the trade Tom!
