Gypsy Queen Needs from Zistle
A quick little zistle trade chipping away at 2015 Gypsy Queen. This trade check two short prints off the list, I absolutely love that Johnny Bench, I almost always want in-game actiony photos, but there is something about the laid back feel of this card I love.
The other short print Luis Aparicio, in stark contrasts to the Bench card above, this is not the kind of photo I want to see on a baseball card, although it gets a pass as its a picture from the mid-60's.
This photo does not get a pass, I am always happy to get new Arenado cards, and new Rockies from Gypsy Queen, but this photo looks like he just messed his drawers, and then was forced to have his photo taken. Posed photos, or Glamor shots by Deb, of modern players always annoy me.
More glamor shots, my first Rockies card of "Dirty" Dan Descalso, whom Colorado signed as a free agent, and paid $1,500,000.00 to hit .205 last year.
and an actual game photo of Chris Colabello, I must have developed a bit of a soft spot for the Jays and added a few weird cards to my wantlists. Thanks for the trade, always much appreciated.
