It's been awhile since I've shown off some of the awesome cards I've gotten via trade from some great people...And it's high time I do something about it.
So I present to you...A TRADE POST!!!
Although I've only traded with my newest friend Brandon twice, we've had some great message exchanges and not to mention great package exchanges.
His latest bubble mailer included this awesome array of Player Collection cardboard!
Kimbrel, Tulo, Hosmer, Longo, and even a Freddy Sanchez! He knows me too well already.
That's was not all, though, friends. Brandon even sent me some 2012 Topps Chrome help, as well as this beautiful 2013 Topps Archive Larry Bowa SP. What an awesome haul, right?
The fun is just beginning with this trade post.
These next "cards", if you will, were sent by a man that I've trade with more over the past year than anybody in the blogosphere, except one person. And every time is just as good, if not better, than the last. That man is good ole Tom from Waiting 'til Next Year. Who knew a Cubs and Rockies fan could be such compatible card trading partners?
Recently, Tom post some Topps Chipz that he wanted to trade away. Being the opportunist I am, and possibly the only one dumb enough to care about Topps Chipz, I jumped on this...
Who doesn't love a smiling Cargo on a poker chip? Exactly!
Honestly, I'm not sure what draws me to these. It's almost like a moth to a bug zapper...or something like that. Anyway, Tom was also kind enough to send me some Rockies prospect cards.
Ok, I have a confession to make. I recognize one of the names, but only from a card I've gotten previously. I'm terrible with keeping up with prospects and rookies. Although, I did know of Nolan Arenado before the start of the regular season this year. That's a start, right?
Somebody??? Anyone??? Ok then. Ummm. Just kidding.
There you have it! Special thanks to Brandon and Tom. If you don't know these guys, please let me know, and I will give you their contact info (with their permission obviously...no autographs please). These guys are great traders, and you need to experience it as well!
Have a great night, everyone!
