Today was a helluva day for mail. In all, I have seven cards to add to some of my personal collections. First up, my trade with Andrew of Andrew's Baseball Cards
Andrew and I talked a while back about a specific card in particular. We were finally able to work something out. Along with about 50 2013 Bowman he needed, I also sent a couple Cardinal prospect autos from this year's Bowman Inception line. In return, I received (as a surprise) some assorted Rangers, including two Yu Darvish cards.
|2013 Topps Cut to the Chase - Yu Darvish|
Surprisingly, this Cut to the Chase card was not a card in my collection. Consider that problem solved.
|2013 Topps Opening Day Stars - Yu Darvish|
I didn't go after the Opening Day set. It jsut seems like Series 1 with a different set logo. But I am pretty happy to have this card in my collection!
Andrew also included this guy in the trade:
|2013 Bowman Blue Sapphire Rookie Reprint|
Surprisingly, I didn't have this card in my collection either. It's a welcome addition.
But here's the card I wanted, and I thought it was the only card I was getting in the trade (which would have been completely worth it):
|2012 Topps Chrome Purple Parallel - Bryce Harper RC|
Just an awesome card. There's really nothing more one can say about it that adds to the conversation. Thanks Andrew! You definitely surprised me with all the extras - I'm looking for something else to send you to balance out this trade a bit!
The other pieces of mail came as goodies from eBay, and all are for my Joey Gallo PC.
|2013 Bowman Platinum Purple Parallel - Joey Gallo|
Much like the Top Prospects card
I bought on eBay a week or two ago, I bought this one and then pulled it in a pack a couple days later. Awesome.
|2013 Bowman Top 100 - Joey Gallo|
I recently picked up the numbered, die-cut parallel of this card, so it's only natural that I add this one too.
|2013 Bowman Cream of the Crop Blue Sparkle - Joey Gallo #'d 2/250|
But here's the true treasure of my eBay haul, this Cream of the Crop Blue Sparkle, numbered 2 of 250. What a beauty!!!!
Nice Yu's... gotta track those down for my PC.ReplyDelete
