I can finally post a couple of trades that came my way recently (or not-quite-so, as the case may be)! This post was originally started on my birthday (April 20), but between the family get together and my recent outpatient venture in which I took Bob Barker's advice and projected it onto myself, I am now finally able to post this!
Steve, over at White Sox Cards, sent me a stack of goodies after receiving a vintage Sox card and a few 'bonuses.' Some of the highlights of the cards he sent include: 1995 UD SP Albert Belle; 1995 UD SP Platinum Power Jim Thome; 2006 UD SP Legendary cuts Bob Lemon, Lou Boudreau, and Stan Coveleski; 2006 Fleer Flair Showcase Pronk; 2006 Bowman Heritage (BHP) Michael Aubrey; 2005 Donruss Champions Sean Casey; 2005 UD ESPN Pronk; 2007 Topps Co-Signers Pronk; 2007 Topps '52 Auto'd Aaron Laffey; 1968 Atlantic Play Ball Sam McDowell; 1976 Topps Jackie Brown; and a whole slew of other cards!
Thanks a TON, Steve!
SuterB, a regular contributor to the comments portion of my show here, answered a trivia question I had buried in one of my posts and he was award a prize (and I believe I sent a few extras with it, if memory serves). He returned the favor with a stack of Tribe cards which included a surprise card. He gave me several hints as to whom the player was, but I am too dense to have figured out. Luckily, he sent me the card anyway! :-) His offering included quite a few ALCS/ALDS Topps cards; a couple Pronkers; 2006 Topps Shoppach; 2007 Lofton Updates & Highlights; 1997 UD Great Futures Bartolo Colon; a few other cards and the player who would one day manage the Tribe? A 1964 Topps Doc Edwards (playing Catcher for the then Kansas City Athletics)! Great stuff!
