Last week I pulled off a trade with Drew from Drew's Cards. The kid has got a cool blog and I'm not sure if any of you reading have had a chance to trade with him yet, you should. He's a very generous trader, so much so that I feel like I need to rummage through all my cards again and find some more Jets and Yankees cards to send his way.
On with the cards!!
... and some black border Ginters. This trade actually rejuvenated my interest in trying to finish that up. I'm having to turn to Ebay for some of those, and hopefully some will be coming home soon.
He sent me a bunch of series ones that I needed.
I have mentioned before how Indians cards look pretty cool and this is no exception. I love the old school hat he's wearing and the high angle of the shot.
Now for the extras. I wasn't really expecting this much stuff included in the trade.
This goes nicely with the other Mets base cards I've already pulled. I traded for a mini earlier, and I'm still patiently waiting to get more. Maybe another blaster is in my future.
This is cool a Topps retro T204 card. Based on a 1909 design.
I have bought only one pack of the UD Artifacts. I like the way these cards look. I need to search out some more. I think mine came in a repack. I think Jose looks a little like a drag queen in this card though. He looks like he's wearing lipstick or something.
Cool! I think this qualifies as my oldest baseball card since all my older cards are either still in my parent's attic, or have been thrown away.
My first A&G of the 2007 variation. These cards are cooler looking to me than the '08's. All the minis look good though. Not as much white background on them unlike the base cards.
I'm guessing the entire Mets team set from 2006 Topps.
I think I now have like 3 or 4 of these cards already without ever having to buy a pack. Maybe I could try and complete this team set off of trades. I like the look of the cards, but I haven't had the chance to look at the checklist so I don't even know how many Mets their are in this set.
Keith Hernandez card from my most collected set when I was a kid. I had a ton of these Donruss cards from 1984. I actually have grown a fondness for the teal coloring on the backs of the cards.
2007 Upper Deck cards look really snazzy to me. For some reason I love the borders.
2007 Goudey Pedro. This is the first Goudey I've seen with the blue (purple?) backs. Ken Griffey says, "Pedro's got a Goudey-mullet."
Alright that's all for now. Thanks for the cards Drew. I hope you liked the ones I sent.
The darkest of my dark periods
