Mail day: Trading with David

11 11 2008

Wow.  All I can say is wow.  Looking at a stack of 80+ you receive in trade can be pretty intimidating.  It’s a stack that makes you feel like what you sent back pales in comparison, no matter what it was. In this case, it was some Mets, some wantlist cards, a stack of the 50th Anniversary All Star Rookies, and a promise for Ring of Honor cards I pull from my Updates and Highlights box (if I ever get time to crack it open)  I hope that’ll be enough.  If not, well, he’s got my email.

Oh, and you can help David out by visiting his wantlist here. Hit it up and help him out.

Here’s some highlights:


It looks like Juan is contemplating the existential difference between fair and foul. If a mere speck of dust can determine the difference between a double and a do-over, what possible meaning can his life have?


Yeah, that’s right. World Series. You got a problem with that?


Someone at Topps forgot that cards are for kids.




I’m going to go ahead and say it: Cordero was a 40 million dollar mistake for the Reds.


Just a cool card. These are the ones that make A & G stand out in the crowd. Why isn’t it a short print, though?


The woman who Lincoln called “the little lady who started [the] Great War.” I’m ashamed to admit I’ve never read Uncle Tom’s Cabin. I was planning to go to the bookstore tomorrow anyway, so maybe I’ll pick it up then.

Anyway, thanks again to David and I hope what I’ve sent can measure up.

Thanks for the nice link, and I’m glad you’re enjoying the cards! I love that Motley card as well. What a wonderful set.
