It's been awhile since I've featured some great trades I've complete lately with other blogosphere residence, so I thought I'd take a little time away from the Christmas Break posts to show you the awesome trades I've made in the past week or so. First off, I got a nice group of Mets greats and others for my main man Mark over at This Way to the Clubhouse. You know, Piazza, Clark, Ho-Jo. The works. As always, Mark came through with so awesome array of cards right up my alley. Here's the highlights.
Holy Bichette, Batman. That's a lot of Bichette. The jokes could just keep going and going and going. Bichette, one of the original Black Street Bombers, was selected by the Rox in the 1993 expansion draft from the Brewers. Fyi, Bichette finished second in the NL MVP vote in 1995 to Hall of Famer Barry Larkin. Along with the Bichettes, Mark sent a from 2012 Topps Online Exclusive Minis, a handful of other former Rockies and a 2011 Lineage Diamond Parallel Freddie Freeman RC. Awesome as always, Mark.
Next, I couldn't help myself when Ryan at "O" No!!! Another Orioles Blog had a trade bait clearance "trade-off."
I don't have player collections for any of these guys (Dye, Hosmer, Moustakas, Kendall). Just a soft spot in my baseball-loving heart for guys that play the game hard. And that's what each have proven to me. A really nice haul from my friend, Ryan.
Recently, I got in touch with a really nice lady named Julie from the blog Funner Here. I not sure how I figured it out, but Julie is a Roy Halladay junkie. (If you don't sense the sarcasm, check her blog). So I sent her a trio of Halladays from this beauty.
2004 Donruss Leather & Lumber numbered 98/250. Beautiful purple swatch. What's up with the orange tinted shades, Todd? Must be a tip-of-the-cap to our Alma mater, which finally has a head coach, just saying. Great card from Ms. Julie.
Last but not least, Rhubard_Runner at e rayhahn rayhahn got in touch with me about three weeks ago and got the wheels turning for a Twins for Rockies swap. Check it.
It was hard for me to believe I hadn't acquired that Helton Split Screen with Ben Grieve. Thankfully, David had it, and now it belongs to me.
Overall, all four trades where amazing. New cards everywhere. If you've not made a trade with any of these four bloggers, you're missing out. Go check them out and tell them Tim sent you...I've always wanted to say that.
