It is true!
I ought to write more posts complaining about a lack of trading because hours after that post I completed this trade!
However, since the last time I posted about a trade it fell through I decided I'd wait until the cards were in the mail before I made an announcement. Since cards went out Friday I feel good about announcing the trade now!
As you all know I'm in to the mini relics big right now and I have made the comment that I'd like to collect all of the /25 relics from Topps 2013 Series 1, 2, and Update.
Well I got my first one... and I LOVE it!
To get it I gave up a fair amount and some might think it one sided, but I'm happy and in the end that is all that matters.
To get my card I traded away my Bowman Machado auto as well as my SP Legendary Cuts Stan Musial relic card I got a couple of Christmas' ago. I also tossed in a 2012 Topps Joe DiMaggio image variation and a 1992 Front Row Derek Jeter "rookie" card.
THIS IS WHERE I NORMALLY POST A PICTURE OF THE CARD IN QUESTION BUT BLOGGER IS BEING A REAL TOOL ABOUT POSTING PHOTOS. IF SOMEONE KNOWS WHATS UP WITH THAT HIT ME UP IN THE COMMENTS SO I CAN DO THIS CORRECTLY.
In return I picked up the Stan Musial 1971 mini relic numbered 7/25. It has a real sick old swatch with a seam down the middle of it! It's a great addition to my collection and I'm extremely happy to have it!
Not too long after that I completed another trade. I gave up a full size and mini framed relic of Brandon Phillips from 2013 Topps Gypsy Queen in exchange for a Lineage Ozzie Smith mini relic. To complete this trade I also threw in some extra cards, but the most noteworthy of the bunch was a 2007 Topps All Time Fan Favorite gold parallel of Joe Morgan that was numbered to 25.
Again no photos, but 2 trades in the books. One that gets me started on my goal of collecting all the 2013 mini relics and another that gets me over the half way mark for sure on the 2011 Lineage mini relics.
Hopefully blogger gets it's Sh!t together and allows me to post pics soon.
Well I'm signing off for tonight! Looks like I'll be waking up to a winter wonderland. GREEEEAAAATTTT.
Thanks for reading!
