Bubble Gum Trade

As gross as the title sounds, I did not trade bubble gum with anyone, I just really suck at coming up with witty titles.A quick trade with Jeff Jones from wish they still came with bubble gum with what else? Gypsy Queen, sparing any readers there might base cards, the above Bruce Sutter is a short print, a Hall of Famer, and a beard card.

Zistle Trade #41

Zistle trade with fellow Canadian scottbdoug, and how much more Canadian can it get other than O-Pee-Chee, and nice little stack of wood borders from the 1987 set. These put me up to 133 out of 396 cards, not to exciting to most people, but this was the first set I remember collecting as a kid. Thanks for the trade!

Zistle Trade #40

Quick zistle trade with mattdamick filling some 2014 Redskins needs, Ryan Grant and Trent Murphy both made the 2014 Washington roster, nut neither really made a huge impact.

Cardboard Collections Trade

As with most trades this time of year, Gypsy Queen set needs are coming in, today from Cardboard Collections. Always nice to get Mike Trout out of the way, he usually seems short printed, but this year he is card #1, and this completed page 1 in the set binder.

Dollar Store Trading

Another trade with fellow Canadian, Sportscards From the Dollar Store, a sweet orange swatch from an "Event Worn workout jersey", and as weird as it is seeing Tulo in an orange jersey, it sounds like seeing him in a different jersey might be a permanent thing sooner than later.

COMRockies (Parallel Madness)

Still working the the most recent COMC package, starting with my favorite card of the bunch, a camo refractor of Rosell Herrera, numbered to 15, these are pretty hard to find for a reasonable price. I am not a huge fan of Herrera as a prospect, but this was too nice a card to pass up.

Another Subjective Trade

I still have no idea who Kennys Vargas is. After posting my Gypsy Queen box break including an autograph of Mr. Vargas, I noticed a comment by Brian from "Highly Subjective and Completely Arbitrary" saying Vargas was his favorite Twin and he had the power of two regular guys called Kenny and he wanted to trade for the card. Once I realized he was being serious, a trade was born. Starting with some Gypsy Queen for my set, including two short prints and Wilin Rosario that as far as I can tell is the only card in set featuring catcher gear.
