Trader’s Backlog: Feeling (Dodger) Blue
Mmm, pizza time! I’m definitely going to put this Tombstone set together, someday. This pair from Jim brings me up to a handful of the set.
Some more Dodgers here. The Grand Slammers inserts from ’91 Donruss are one of the first cards that really caught my eye when I was a kid. I have a few of them, and would like to build the whole ’91 run. The Gibson is a superb Broder that I just couldn’t pass up. I’d originally intended to pick it up as a bit of trade bait, but when I actually held its powerful pinkness in person, I decided it was just too much fun and opted to keep it.
Here’s another pair of cards for some food issues sets that you should be well familiar with if you’ve been following the blog this year. I’ve made some good progress on these mid-80’s oddballs.
Finally, the last card in the trade was a stupendous one of Frank “Hondo” Howard, The Capital Punisher himself. Oh sure, you can call it a poor crop, but do you really think cardboard could properly constrain this beautiful beast? Just look at the forearm on Frank here! I’m a big fan of this TCMA set, and adding a this Hondo was a no-brainer.
Thanks again for the trade, Jim!
