Recently I completed my very first trade with Fuji, whom you all know from his great blog The Chronicles of Fuji. I've been reading his blog for years, in fact he's even inspired some of my cardboard purchases, so I'm not sure what took us so long to get around to a trade, but I can definitely say it was worth the wait.
It all came together when I posted about the 1990-91 O-Pee-Chee Premier hockey set a few weeks ago. I mentioned that I had a spare set available and Fuji expressed some interest, so I shipped the cards off to him. I was happy just to purge 150+ unwanted cards from my hobby room and didn't ask for anything in return, but being the gentleman that he is I received a great bubble mailer just a few days later.

he completed this entire autograph set. I've got one as well, having grabbed all four Red Sox autos over the course of last year. As much as I'd like to keep this as a second (and get a third, fourth and fifth!), I think I am going to pay it forward and send this to another collector to enjoy rather than hoard it for myself.
Anyone interested? Thanks for the awesome trade Fuji, your package was very much appreciated and definitely brightened up my week!
