Recently I was contacted by a reader named Marc who had a few cards off my Want List to send my way. We quickly worked out a trade. Marc's a Luc Robitaille collector, so I sent him a Robitaille Masterpieces swatch and a couple of odd Bruins cards. In return, I got 25 cards that I needed towards my 1993-94 Upper Deck SP inserts set. I won't show you every card but here are some select favorites:
the Ranford card that Paul from Cardboarded posted yesterday.
This was a great trade package, but best of all I've made a new friend in the collecting world in Marc. He's a Bruins fan, which makes him a stand-up guy in my book, and he lives right in my neck of the woods. In fact we've even been to some of the same card shows in the past. Thanks for a great trade Marc! I will certainly keep in touch and hopefully we can meet in person at a show someday soon.
