2 More Trades

I've got a bunch of stuff to post about this week. I went to Gettysburg yesterday and picked up some interesting cards, along with a random grab bag o' fun. There's a few trades in the works that should be arriving this week, a box break on Weds or Thurs, and I want to do one of those 6 in 30 things too.

I'm going to start by getting last week's trades out of the way. Some great cards came my way, one package is from an old trading buddy, Mojo Hand, and the other is from first time trade buddy Jim, from the Phillies Room.

We'll start with the cards I received from Mojo Hand. He is one of my favorite people to trade with because he always has cards that I want, and isn't shy about offering them up if he sees something he likes. We're working on a monster trade that should be completed this week (at least on his end, but more on that later). I sent Mojo a WBC gold refractor, and some shiny A's prospects. He sent me the following:

2009 Upper Deck Piece of History Brian Roberts blue parallel

2008 Topps CoSigners Nickk Markakis red parallel

2008 Upper Deck Legendary Cuts Cal Ripken/Nick Markakis dual jersey

2 sweet Markakii, one featuring a Cal Ripken jersey bit, and a nice Roberts parallel. Great trade all around, thanks again Mojo. There was one more card included in this package, but it was a prize for winning a trivia contest Mr. Hand held last week. It's very shiny.

2003 Topps Tribute Nolan Ryan game jersey

Once again, thanks Mojo. This is an awfully nice card to just give away, and I'm glad I was able to win it.

Next up we have Jim from the Phillies Room. He emailed me about having one of the Creatures cards off of my want list. I sent him a Ryan Howard refractor, and a couple of other numbered Phillies, and he sent me the following:

2009 Allen & Ginter Creatures of Myth, Legend & Terror Kraken mini

2009 Allen & Ginter Adam Jones mini

2001 Fleer Greats of the Game Cal Ripken

1971 Topps Don Buford

1985 Donruss Larry Sheets

2001 Topps Archives 1970 Boog Powell

2001 Topps Archives 1977 Mike Cuellar

2005 Donruss Studio Brian Roberts Diamond Cuts

Jim, thanks a lot for the great cards, and for getting me one card closer to completing the Creatures of Myth, Legend & Terror mini set.
