Trade With Ryan H. of "O" No!!! Another Orioles Blog

Last week, I was able to swap some cardboard with Ryan over at "O" No! Another Orioles Blog.  He recently pulled a couple cards that I wanted from Series 2 and had quite a few cards for his 2013 Bowman set.  It was a match made in baseball card heaven.

Ryan was able to send me a boatload of Series 2 and 2013 Bowman from my need lists.  I'm a mere three cards away from completing my Bowman set.  Please take a look at my need list to see if you have any of them!

The second big piece of the trade was this Jordan Zimmerman Chasing History relic, numbered 42/99.  In case you were wondering, I am a fan of the Nats and have been since they moved to Washington.  Why, you ask?  Well, prior to their move to Arlington, the Rangers were the Washington Senators.  Seem like a loose connection to you?  Well, I guess that's okay.  Regardless, I'm a fan and Zimmerman has been "Straight cash, homey," as Randy Moss would say.  He's posted a sub-3 ERA and is one of the few bright spots for this year's team.  I'm happy to add this to my collection.

The last piece of the trade is a photo variant of A's outfielder Josh Reddick. I hate the A's, but I truly love this card.  The beard is epic.  I like it more than I liked Brian Wilson's.  So Ryan was kind enough to send it my way.

Ryan, thanks for the trade!  I appreciate and love all of these cards!!!!


  1. I love that Reddick pic. That card alone is enough reason to start a Reddick PC. They should do one of those DNA cards with a picture of that beard and an actual hair from the beard encapsulated in it.

    1. Greatest. Idea. Ever. There are plenty of ballplayers that could be in that insert - Brian Wilson, Rollie Fingers, Kevin Youkilis, the entire Red Sox team, etc.
