Trade Days!

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!


  1. You're welcome. I'm glad you enjoyed the cards! That 1995 SP Albert Belle is the silver parallel of that card.

  2. That is SWEET!! Man, thanks a bunch!

  3. I'm glad the cards made it there OK. The Doc Edwards card came from a cheap 2 card lot (both '64 Doc's) that I got on eBay. I want to get the card to put with my collection of players that later became managers, and I knew what I was going to do with the second card as soon as I got it.

    P.S. You sent me a '65 and a '57. I'm still working on getting one card from every year Topps made cards. I only have 9 more years to go.

  4. David,
    Did you get my return email concerning our possible trade? Just let me know what works for you and I'll see what I can dig up by way of Indians cards.
