Spring Trading

Man, that happened fast.

I'm at it for less then two weeks and I've already pulled off my first trade.

My new friend Greg or "plaschkethysweaterisargyle" hit me up looking to see if I would deal my Longoria card.  I told him I'd take a look at what he might offer and found out he liked the Dodgers and more specifically Clayton Kershaw.

I ended up hanging on to the Longoria card and instead we came up with a trade for basically two Kershaw cards and a Podres auto.

First and foremost I should put it out there that I liked these cards very much and am proud of myself for letting them go to a collector who will appreciate them more then I already have... and that's a lot.

So much so that I've decided to make my first addition to...

(1950's SciFi Narrator voice)


First up is the hardest one to let go of.

2010 Topps T206 Johnny Podres Mini Framed American Caramel Auto

I know its a sticker auto but I just thought it was a really good looking card.  Excellent design. Check out the back...

Like I said... I'm sad to let this one go and will now put it in The Lost Cards File.

The Clayton Kershaw cards are hard because of the fact that the kids a stud and these cards will only go up in value if he has a hall worthy career.  Check them out below.  They too are new inductees to The Lost Cards File.

(sorry about the glare)

2011 Topps Heritage Clubhouse Collection Jersey Relic

(yeah I know... the glare.  Sorry)

Both cards are nice and I wouldn't mind having them back in the collection either. 

I'm also throwing in an Andre Either 2011 Marquee base and a Bowman Sterling Josh Lindblom prospect auto that he already had but could likely find a better home for it as I didn't much care for it.  Heres a shot of it in the group.

At this point in the post you might expect me to tell you what I'm going to get in return but I think I'm going to hold out and wait until I get the cards in the mail.  Look out for the post "MAIL DAY".

Until next time...
