First was a quick swap with Jesse, aka jddavis84. This one actually started out as a 1-for-1 swap that he proposed. He was “desperately trying to finish the Before Opening Day” inserts, and I had the last one he needed – a Bryce Harper. This Dallas Keuchel was the sole card he had from my want lists, but I checked and I had plenty from his. What’s more, he’s got ambitions on working on a ton of sets. Seeing an opportunity, I browsed through the rest of his trade lists and found this nice MJ card. I’ve always liked the 91-92 Fleer set. Oh, and I sent Jesse a small flat rate that was absolutely stuffed – 384 cards to help out with his set builds.
The other package that came in was from Michael, who goes by Lugnut80 on the site. He had a little more for me, including two of my last wants from 1993 Stadium Club. Casey Candaele and Doug Jones are the last Astros I need.
Speaking of Bowman, I added this foil card of Orlando Miller from the 1994 set, which is probably my favorite Bowman design ever. The Shane Reynolds comes from 1997 Finest, a set from which I don’t have many cards. I know Night Owl says he likes to let these breathe. I think I would do that for dupes, but there’s something about me that feels like I should leave the coating on.
