Trade with Night Owl

I had posted some Lineage mini’s that Night Owl had wanted so he had contacted me about a trade.  If you know Night Owl, and most of us do, he loves the 1975 Topps and in turn, loves the new Lineage mini’s that look like the 1975’s.  I love his blog, both of them.  “Night Owl Cards” is great and you can tell he puts a lot of time into his posts.  They are humorous and informative, and he shows lots of cards.  And I’ll be sad because “75 Topps (it’s far out, man)” is about done but he says he’s going to start a new set blog after a small vacation from doing 2 blogs so I’m looking forward to seeing what set is up next.  I love baseball cards for the players, because I love baseball.  Night Owl loves the cards, he shows me things I didn’t even realize were there.  He’s way more observant with them than I am.  Which is why I love his posts.

But back to the trade, he sent me a stack of White Sox cards.  I won’t show you everything, they were all appreciated, but most of you won’t care about those.  Here were my favorites.

All these will go to my Konerko Collection.  I really like the A&G mini, I hadn’t seen any of these in person yet as I didn’t buy any packs of A&G.  Not a big fan of the set, too much crap that’s not basball.  I do like the baseball cards in the set, just not everything else.  So I always appreciate A&G in trade packages.  I might have the first 2 SP Authentic in my Konerko Collection but even if I do, they can go into the White Sox Collection.

A Gavin Floyd 2010 Topps Chrome Refractor.  I, like a lot of you, like the Chrome’s but I don’t have too many of them.  I like this 2009 UD Spectrum, you can see the purple in the scan so I’m guessing it’s a purple parallel but I don’t know for sure.  I haven’t taken the time to investigate it, but either way, I like the card.  Not so sure Carlos will be with us next year, but he was good for us, when he could stay healthy.

And Night Owl was nice enough to send me this beauty.  Mark Buehrle (who is my favorite pitcher on the team) relic from A&G.  I love these framed mini relic cards but I don’t like the empty spaces between the mini and the frame and between the mini and the swatch of jersey.  I’ve seen others where they are all tightly together and I like those better.  But I still like the cards, I like the outside frame.

 

So a big thanks to Night Owl and be sure to check out his blogs if you haven’t already. “Night Owl Cards” and “75 Topps (it’s far out, man)”.  If you’re a card collector than I know you’ll love both off them.
