Trading Day Pt. 1

Two trade packages arrived (last) Monday.  They were good too, scratching a few wantlist items that rarely get itched.  Or something.  Um, anyway, here is the first, from the BA Benny hisself.  And believe it or not, I actually sent my end of this one out first, and in a timely manner.  What?  I’m not lying!  It’s true, I swear!  Oh, hey, is that Bigfoot making out with the Loch Ness Monster? 😛

Less talk, mo’ card pretty!:

Random Player/Team Collections..

Several 2009 Chrome WBCs, including one familiar face..

2009 U&H Propaganda Posters, Randy Moss that didn't fit on the player/team scan, and the Bird Hit Parade of Champions that started the whole thing..

Great stuff, it’s good to focus on set needs and rarely touched upon collections sometimes.


Quick Hitz

Hi everybody.  Keep those contest guesses coming.  There’s still a lot of numbers between 1 and 57 left to guess.  You have till… Monday Night Football ends to get your guesses in.

And now for a random wonderfully excellent pack break.  A version with scans will be made for A Pack to be Named Later early next week, because I’ll have scans by then! 😛

I bought the pack in hopes of getting one of those slick Propaganda Poster inserts (1:2 fat packs), but I didn’t get one.  I think I did okay though.  Can’t hope for much better than Tommy Hanson AND a hit of a great player.
