My first Trade Post

So Brian over at Play at the Plate is really the one to blame for most of my baseball card problems of late, and if you're not reading his blog, well...you should be.

He's the one that suggested the blog, and I'm convinced he's the little guy on my shoulder saying "Just one more...buy that last Bowman Blaster....."

Seriously though, Brian's been a great ambassador for the online card-collecting community, and he showed it through my very first through the mail trade.  I talked with him about how I'm trying to finish my 2010 Topps Series 1 set, and he asked for a list.  I passed it on to him, along with a few cards I had in the trade box, and here's what happens.

My 2010 Topps Series 1 collection goes from this:

To this:

He also threw in a ton of inserts to boot!  I guess I could sit here all day and take pictures of the cards he sent, but that would take...well...forever.   So instead, I'm going to leave you with a shot of one of my favorite cards from Topps 2010.

Thanks again Brian!


  1. Man, you can't beat the generosity of bloggers. You never know what's going to show up in your mailbox.

  2. Email me your list, if there is anything left on it, and I will look through what I have.
    We need to get you going on Series 2 as well, heck, Series 3 is right around the corner!!

    Also, welcome to a new and hopefully long term blogger.

  3. Want list added. Take a look and see if we can work something out!

    I've got Series 2 covered.

    Once the base are done....maybe I'll think about putting together some insert sets, but that seems to be a pretty daunting task!
