Trading Gypsys with the Dimwit !

Two weeks ago, Sam at the Daily Dimwit posted a 2012 Gypsy Queen box break which included a nice Rivera relic. As I was still missing that one I contacted Sam and we quickly set up a great trade. I send Sam 20 or so Gypsy Queen minis including a bunch of SPs and a blue framed Freese as well as a pile of Astros from a recent box break I participated in. In return I received the following great cards this weekend !

Firstly, a cool blue-framed Yogi Berra (#/599). I really like these blue-frames parallel cards in the Gypsy Queen set and am planning to chase all the Yankees of this one (as well as Verlander, Kershaw and Lincecum of course).

Sam also send me some Yankee minis ! Nick Swisher (who is on a roll this season so far) and Granderson.

The card that initiated the trade: the Mariano Rivera Relic card !

Lastly, Sam also added the Rivera mini photo variation SP !! Much Appreciated !!

Thanks Sam for a great trade !! I hope more will follow in the future and I am looking forward to your next box break !

I am still in need of several Gypsy Queen regular size photo variation SP cards so if any of you have any you are willing to trade (for something good of course) let me know !
