First, a confession to make – I think this is probably the third trade Steven proposed to me. But, what with the being busy and also not having about 75% of my cards readily on hand (yes, they really are still at my parents), I had let them expire.
Thankfully, though, Steven didn’t give up. He shot a super simple trade over to me, requesting three of the 1968 Game inserts from this year’s Heritage – something I knew I could pull right away, in exchange for this pair of Springers from 2017 A&G. That’s the “base” mini up there in the corner. The other card involved was from the massive What A Day! insert series. This one commemorates George’s first walk-off hit.
Thanks for the cards Steven! I have a feeling we’ll be swapping a lot more in the future – after accepting the trade, I found out that he’s in Texas as well – just five or so hours north of me. That also meant these cards showed up super quick. Here’s hoping I can pass some more cardboard your way soon!
