Since I’m still working on scans from my Secret Santa gift and the 45+ Warren Moons (amongst other things) from The Great Sports Name Hall of Fame and the cards from Marie and some random hits and you get the idea, and my A Piece of History box isn’t due till Monday, I don’t have much to post about at the moment. Thank goodness for belated trade posts though. Here are the cool cards I got in the various clunker-type trades I cashed in on awhile back, as well as a small trade with Baseball Dad.
The four 2008 Sports Royalty cards were what this one was about. For some reason I decided I wanted to collect all the non-baseball players in the set. I’m not even sure how many there are, but I want ’em. I need to update my wantlist to note that I have these three someday. May as well list the mini too, since I listed the WBC refractors I have over there. What were we talking about?
Oh yeah, he sent some Cubbies along for the ride too. That was nice. I need ROtB’s address to send him some stuff in return though (bubble mailer’s long gone).
Sent a LaPorta jersey and a Crowe auto and a couple other random cards for these and a couple others. The D-Lee refractor was a nice surprise, especially after the 2009 he had and the realization that I have so many cards of him that I decided I should just make him his own separate player collection. It’ll be official once I have some room in the big binder or get a new one that I can put his cards in.
Sorry about the awkwardness of this pic. I don’t know what the heck I was doing here. Gilgamesh and Ichiro (and a not pictured for some reason Chrome Trading Card History of Alfonso Soriano) came from Nachos, and the rest came from Stats. Well, except for the Red Moore. I pulled him myself.
I really like the Hit Parade of Champions and am trying to collect that set as well if anybody has any to trade. All I have are the Kobe above and LeBron.
Lots of nice cards, and even though the whole Clunker thing isn’t relevant anymore, the idea is excellent. I may try to do this with some of my excess minor inserts and such someday. Anyone got a catchy new topical name for it?
Finally, I leave you with this.
Somewhere along the way, I think Aramis Ramirez became my favorite Cub. I think this card also came from Roll Out the Barrel, but I’m not 100% sure.
Make like a pig and FLY!
