UncleMoe Sends Over Some Great Cards!!!

UncleMoe Sends Over Some Great Cards!!!

One of the most loyal trade partners that I have had the pleasure of trading with over the years is UncleMoe.

We have an understanding – he gets my Diamondbacks and I get his Marlins.  The deal was never etched into stone, it has naturally progressed.  In addition to that, if I uncover any of the players that he collects while at my monthly card show, I grab them for him.  And he always returns the favor with cards of the guys that I collect.

It has been this way for the last few years, and is as close to having a ‘trading partner’ like I had when I was a kid.

The last package of cards from UncleMoe was again, AWESOME!!!

This time around, he sent me some new Marlins cards for my team collection, and some modern cards of the legends that I collect.

On to the bounty!!!

2 Gary Carter cards that I was missing:

A full page’s worth of Marlins:

And two very sweet Eddie Murray and Jim Palmer cards that I did not have:

Thank you Moe!!!  These are great additions to my collection.

Trade With Reader Ken Brings A Very Cool Manufactured Patch Card To ’30-YOC’

Trade With Reader Ken Brings A Very Cool Manufactured Patch Card To ’30-YOC’

A few weeks ago I posted my results from busting two 2012 Topps Update blasters.

In that post, I showed off a Prince Fielder Blockbuster Patch Card that I pulled in one of those boxes.  Within 24 hours, I had a reader of ’30-YOC’ that was interested in adding that card to his collection.

And what he was offering was right up my alley!!!

We sweetened the deal for each other by my adding all of the Tigers cards I pulled from both boxes in exchange for a few cards for my current player collections.

And now, the trade is complete, and I believe it has left both of us collectors happy.

Here is my haul:

1984 Donruss Mike Schmidt, for the PC:

3-card Eric Davis lot for the PC:

And the centerpiece of the trade, the Ivan ‘Pudge’ Rodriguez card from the 2012 Topps Update Blockbuster manufactured patch set:

Thank you Ken!!!  One hell of a trade!!!
