A few weeks ago Jeff at 2 by 3 Heroes contacted me as he checked out my Want List and found several cards he had which I still needed to complete my, mostly, Allen & Ginter sets. In return, I found 70 or so Gypsy Queen cards he still needed and a nice Dye relic card, so a cool trade was quickly born, and cool it was !!
The package arrived at my doorstep when I returned from holiday. Let's have a look shall we ! First up, a few 2012 Gypsy Queen inserts. I like the Hallmark Heroes and Future Stars inserts and as I only had access to some hobby boxes here in Europe, I missed out on these completely.
Some cool Future Stars cards, Hosmer and Holland !
Jeff also found me a Sabathia mini (red back) !! and best of all I am another step closer to completing the full set with this Strasburg SP, only 19 SPs to go, so if you have any for trade please let me know !!
Jeff also found me 2 Topps Series 1 inserts that I was still missing including Jeter !
Key to the trade were the Allen & Ginter cards and Jeff added some 2011, 2010 & 2008 A&G to the package !! Here's 2010's Sabathia !!
Jeff also send me several 2011 Hometown Heroes inserts as well as 1 base card. This means I am now only 5 cards away completing the 2011 A&G set !!
my Glavine collection !!
To give me some morale support after the depressing performance of my team in the first 2 matches of the European Cup (I guess Jeff saw this coming :-)), he send me a pile of Soccer cards !! I had never seen these before and think they are great. Meet Bergkamp, who scored the beautiful 2-1 against Argentina in the quarter finals of the 1998 Worldcup.
Jeff, many thanks for an awesome package that really helped me getting closer to completing my Allen & Ginter sets of recent years !! Looking forward to the next trade !!
