Good grief, I’m still 8 months behind on my trade posts. Let’s see if I can’t at least get caught up to September before the month finishes. Hey, I made a lot of trades this year! Gimme a break. I’m just a few trades away from having sent out over 5000 cards since January 1st. I know that’s only like a weekend for JBF.
This was another excellent TCDB trade, this time with a new trading partner named Paul (paulie3jobs is his handle). I sent over a little stack of 2018 flagship and some new Yankees for his collection, which netted me a dozen new Astros, including this fine 2004 Bazooka of then-outfielder Craig Biggio. This one is a pretty fun set, although I’m not sold on everything that’s happening down in the nameplate.
Oh, and that wasn’t it for the Bazooka cards, as Paul sent me half a dozen MINIS! These are so much fun. They look great in the binder.
The Big Kahuna in this trade, though, was a printing plate! Specifically, it’s the yellow printing plate of Carlos Lee from 2009 Topps Chrome. There’s not much to speak of, image-wise, but this is still a cool piece to have, nonetheless.
Thanks again for the trade, Paul! I’ll take another look and see if our want lists and trade lists match up further.
