I think this is the last trade I have all scanned up and ready for the postin’. It comes from Brian @ Play at the Plate. It’s a little different than the standard trade. He touched upon some collections that rarely see any trade action. When I first went through things, my first thought was that the selection of cards I received was “inspired”. Behold!
B hit on almost all my non-Bears collections with Moon, Moss, Cunningham, and Dunn. Greg Olsen, I think is more athletic than skilled, but I like him. And a Beautiful Person. I covered the formation of the Beautiful People when I used to recap the show for a wrestling satire site back in the day. Let’s just say they didn’t have the most amazing of starts, but they got better. Only ever got three feedback, two right after I announced I was quitting. I thought I’d try to get a gig at 411mania afterward, but I never did. Was so totally burnt out after I quit and eventually got sidetracked with this whole blogging thing. Maybe More wrestling to come.
Aki for the now defunct Asian player collection. Aside from the certain ones I collect, I just save them for Dinged Corners and Shot Not Taken now.
I think I had the Rhynos already, but they are always welcome, and if they are dupes, I will see that they find a good home.
More cards from the wrestling blaster, of which I received the entirety. AJ, Booker, and Sting are keepers all, though only AJ and Booker do I actively collect. What an antiquated sentence.
Also, Sarge! 😀
Some excellent additions to the Hawk, Vladdy, Carew, and Billy Williams collections. The Finest card in the center is #ed out of /1999 I believe. I think Billy Williams is my favorite from this bunch though. One of my greatest cards is a Billy Williams one, but other than that, I’m pretty lacking in his cards. He and Fergie Jenkins don’t get nearly enough love amongst Hall of Famers.
Mmmhmm… Sarita. Yes plz.
I said I’m just saving the Asian players for Ray and P&L, but I hope Night Owl can use this Kaz, because I sent it to him along with a couple cards he was wanting yesterday.
Angel Guzman is pretty good. I have faith in the late innings if he’s pitching.
Still need a BUNCH of the chromey WBCs. I guess this means I will have to update my wantlist… *sigh*
I dunno what Rob Terry’s been up to, since I haven’t watch iMPACT! in awhile or read any recaps. He was pretty much just a big scary lookin’ dude that was too green to do that much last time I checked. It matters little though, the hits were just icing on the cake, in this instance.
Finally, I definitely wasn’t expecting the Debra-worn swatch! I had no idea there were any bloggers that collected wrestling cards in any sort of meaningful way, except for maybe Offy, and I definitely wasn’t expecting to see a card from as far back as when Debra was around. That is really cool.
Thanks Brian, this was a great trade!
Stay tuned for a little trade bait late tonight/early tomorrow.
Fly me to the moon…
