Before I get into the trade, I finally got my stuff scanned tonight. Now it’s a matter of getting them typed up and ready to post. But I can do that on the comfort of my couch, with my feet up. ZZZZZZZZ
I made a trade with Sam a little while ago, I thought I had posted this already but the scan’s were still in my “scanned and waiting” folder so I went searching and sure enough, no post. So here goes.
Sam contacted me with some Sox cards he had but I didn’t have much to send him. So I told him to give me some time and I’d pick some up, which I did. Shipped them off to him and here’s my return package, or at least the highlights.
Some Topps gold cards. I don’t think I have very many of these. I’ve always liked these parallels. I hate parallels because it’s more cards to collect as a team collector, but I have to admit, I do like some of them. I’ve always liked the gold, and I liked the original sparkly diamond ones, I didn’t care that they started going with cognac and whatever else they had. The hope diamond ones look cool but the odds make them a lot harder to get.
Absolutely love these cards. I believe I have the Michael Jordan white one but I know I don’t have the green framed. And if you remember my photo cleansing posts, I was a big MJ fan. Plus, the Big Hurt, one of the greatest Sox ever. And I’ve grown quite a bit of fondness to Aparicio so to get a green framed, awesome. I really do love the Masterpieces set.
I’m not positive what the Thomas blue card is but I believe I have the Tom Seaver one that I picked up at a card show awhile back. I didn’t even know Rios had a Kimball card but I like it. And you can never go wrong with vintage, even if it is a reprint of a vintage.
Tadahito was a huge part of our 2005 championship and it’s a great looking prospect card. The Konerko goes into my player collection which I am always grateful to add to. Plus it’s got a cool, shiny look to it.
And on top of all those great cards, he throws in these 3 relics. A Paulie bat card, which I believe is my first bat card of his. A Danks A&G, I like these framed mini relics. Plus it has a jersey stripe to boot. And I assume the Carlos Lee is a dupe for Sam since he’s an Astros fan. Either way, it’s a great card.
Thanks for the great trade Sam, be sure to check out “The Daily Dimwit”, one of the best card blogs out there.
