I mentioned in yesterday's post that I'm going to try to get more trading done this year, so I figured it made sense to knock out the first trade post of the year today. It comes in the form of my third Zistle trade, with user stevienicks77. I sent over a few random Royals cards, a couple of David Wrights and a Mark McGwire, and in return got 14 cards that I needed towards my 2012 Topps Archives set. Here are a few of my favorites...
This trade was a huge help, particularly due to the three short print cards. I'm now 52 cards shy of the 200-card short set. The short prints are another story as I have just 10 of the 40 out there (no I'm not paying $200+ for the #241 Bryce Harper gimmick). This is one of the sets I hinted at in yesterday's post though, would really like to knock it out by year end. If you are on Zistle you can already see what I need from the set, but I will have my regular want list here updated shortly as well. If you have any of this stuff for trade, particularly short prints, hit me up!
Thanks for a great trade stevienicks77!
While Watching the Padres/Jays game... - It took me one pitch to realize the Padres had an all 2/14 battery. Paul is one year older than Derek, give or take an hour or three. (1988 vs. 1989)
