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!!!

Doug Hooks Up Me & My Player Collections!!!

Doug Hooks Up Me & My Player Collections!!!

I love trading baseball cards.  It was one of my most favorite things to do as a kid and I still enjoy it today.  Sadly, I get to do it too often because I rarely have cards in my collection that I am not actively collecting.

That did change for a little while when the 2012 Topps Archives brand was released.  I love the set, and I busted a few retail boxes of them.

In the boxes, I scored a lot of Detroit Tigers cards so I offered them up to a blogging pal of mine, Doug.  Doug collects the Tigers and I knew that he would enjoy them.

After getting my cards, he started working on his ‘Thank You’ package and the cards he sent are perfectly geared towards my new player collections.

Doug’s generous contributions filled quite a few holes in my PC’s, and now they have been logged and scanned – and now I am ready to show them off too…

Here is the haul:

Thank you for the great cards Doug.  I am already working on my next stack of Tigers to send your way!!!

Take Two – Send A Card, Get A Pack!!!

The headline says it all – and it is simple as that…

I am looking to add some more cards to the player collections that I am working on, and I am hoping that you may be able to help me.

So, if you fill a need for any of the cards I am missing in my player collections, I will send you a pack of baseball cards in exchange.

Yep, 1 card for a pack of cards – I am feeling generous tonight!!!

Here is how it will work – Review my ‘Player Collections’ and if you have a card that I am missing(and it is in solid condition), leave me a comment on this post and I will send you a pack of cards in exchange.  If you have 2 cards that I need, you get 2 packs.  3 cards equals 3 packs and so on…

So dig through your Wade Boggs, Ozzie Smith, Tony Perez, Bo Jackson, Dennis Eckersley, Tony Gwynn, and Dwight Gooden baseball cards and start leaving me comments.

I have 36 packs of 1989 Topps cards waiting for you!!!

Thanks!!!
