I've got four return packages to post this time. I haven't had a lot of time lately so here it goes...
The first package is from Dennis at Too Many Grandersons. He's a Tigers fan (Wolverines fan too but I won't hold that against him) and sent me a great return package of old and new Reds. The three I picked for showing off are the Joe Oliver autograph which is great, the Topps Tek Paul Konerko (plastic see through and refractor like), and an '05 UD Pros and Prospects Griffey. Love the throw back uni.
The next trade is one that I instigated as I found out that Chris from On Card Autos was a Cubs fan and I didn't have anybody claim the Cubs yet (big surprise). He sent a nice little package of Reds, most of them I didn't have yet. I chose the Big Red Machine, Red variation Volquez, and the big head Austin Kearns to show off. I'm gonna have to find some more of the big head cards, those are funny.
The next package came from within the state of Oklahoma from Jeremy of No One's Going To Read This Blog. He's a Mets fan who also requested the Packers. He collects OU Sooners too since he's from Norman. He sent a great package of newer Reds and also some Lions for my brother. I love the Jay Bruce Turkey Red, very classic looking (obviously). It's too bad Upper Deck sucks now because they always had great photography and card design. What was up with 2007 Upper Deck though? Horrible looking sets. I'm glad I didn't start back collecting in '07. Between UD and that Topps set, I probably would have quit again.
The last package came from the legendary Collective Troll. I think between a previous trade with me and trading with Chris from Nachos Grande, Troll didn't have too many Reds left to trade. But...he came through and was able to send a package with some Reds and 80's oddball stuff. I love this Topps Finest Volquez refractor. One of the shiniest refractors i've seen. Of course my scanner isn't going to show you that.
Well I'm caught up for now but should have a couple more coming at some point. I've also pre-ordered two boxes of Topps Chrome baseball and one box of Topps Chrome football so I may have some stuff up for trade.
