First up is another card from the only mini subset I am collecting this year:
2009 Allen & Ginter's Legends of Myth & Terror ChupacabraChupacabras are awesome. It's a really close one for me, as to who I'd rather be proven as real. Sasquatch... or a Chupacabra. If anyone has any of these for trade, please hit me up, and let's talk about it.
2009 Allen & Ginter's AGA-RC Ryan Church autographThis is pretty much what I got in exchange for the Lincecum. I don't care who's autograph it is, I love all Allen & Ginter autos equally.
2008 Bowman Nick MarkakisI did not have this card. Pretty awesome to get it unexpectedly. I had a refractor version of this card, just not the base.
2009 O-Pee-Chee Jim Johnson black borderThis is the Orioles new closer. The past couple of seasons he was pretty much unhittable, as a setup guy, this season not so much... and now he's the closer. It could work out... couldn't it?
2001 Stadium Club Albert BelleI think people send me cards of players I dislike on purpose. What can I really do about it? He's wearing an O's jersey. I've got to keep it based on that alone. I did love that Belle wore #88. He's like a backup tight end.
2001 Bowman Chrome Albert BelleChrome technology has come a loooonnnngggg way. This card is flimsy, and fairly unimpressive compared with today's chrome cards.
2001 Skybox eX Albert BelleI don't care who's pictured on this card cause it's so freakin' cool. The background looks like the paintjob you'd see on an old Lincoln lowrider. All sparkly and whatnot.
2008 Upper Deck Goudey Jim Palmer red backed miniAside from Derek Jeter's face being on it, this card is perfect. Goudey was great in '07 & '08. The '09 version is so terrible by comparison. But that's just, like, my opinion. Man.
Mark, your cards are going in the mail tomorrow morning, so expect them soon. Thanks for the trade!
