A nice card exchange

A few weeks ago I completed an all-Indians card trade with Dan of "Saints of the Cheap Seats". He reviewed the cards I sent him in this blog. I sent 17 Bowman and Topps cards from the 1950's and he sent back 41 recent cards.

All of these cards were new to my collection and spanned the years 1995 to 2008. As you can see, the cards came from a variety of sets including Score, Upper Deck, Topps, Fleer, Leaf an Donruss. And they were packed with stars: Thome, Ramirez, Sizemore, Lofton, Hafner, Burks, Visquel, Lee, Martinez, Sabathia, Hershiser, Alomar and Nagy. I am very pleased with the results of our trade and look forward to more possible trades with Dan.

The Mega Trade with Baseball Dad

I have just completed a trade with Baseball Dad where we each received over 430 Cleveland Indians cards, and each card was new to our respective collections! I'll let Baseball Dad tell you about the cards he received from me. I got a bonanza of Indians cards. The first picture shows all the cards.

Now remember, each of these cards is new to my collection. Baseball Dad did a great job of using my wantlist to insure that I needed each card. As an example of what was included, I added 53 Jim Thome cards to my collection.

There were 37 CC Sabathia cards and 26 Omar Visquel. All the cards were from the last 15 years. This whole trade was made possible by our blogging where we found our mutual interest in the Indians and baseball cards.
