Trader’s Backlog: Vintage From Phil
Anyway, let’s get down to business: this was another TCDB swap, with Phil (p_dawg68). I sent over some Indians, Cavaliers, and Raiders (an odd combo, I know), and in exchange he sent me some lovely vintage ‘Stros. Looking back at our trade discussion, I need to put another swap together between us – I’ve still got plenty of cards he could use. This Dierker was a great add to my ’72 team set, which is now just missing a few high numbers.
The best part of the trade, though, was the seven gray-bordered beauties from 1970 Topps that Phil had for me. Young Jesus Alou’s card is a real winner, and we’ve got an early Red Rooster appearance.
Finally, there were a pair of cards for my PCs in the package as well – a young Bill Lee from the ’72 set was a great add to my Spaceman collection. I’m a little surprised I hadn’t tracked down this Mazeroski from the ’97-’98 Million Dollar Moments cards prior to this, but I’m happy to have it filed safely away with all my other Mazeroskis now.
Thanks again for the trade Phil! Let’s do it again soon.
