Trades w/ the Daily Dimwit, Cardboard Conundrum & Things Are Funner Here

I apologize for the delay in getting these trades posted, but between home life and the group break I'm currently hosting things have been a bit hectic.  This past week brought several new trade packages to the mailbox and I wanted to take a second to show off some of the goodies I got.

First up is the Daily Dimwit.  A while back I sent him a few UD 20th Anniversary cards and some random Houston Astros.


In return he sent me several cards off my want lists for 08 UD Masterpieces, 10 Topps Allen & Ginter and 10 Tristar Obak.  I really appreciate the cards since they fill in several holes on those sets.

Julie from Things Are Funner Here sent me a 2011 Topps Platinum Diamond parallel along with a few 2008 Topps inserts and singles.  I've got a nice little stack of Roy Halladay cards and some random Phillies to send in return now.


I haven't even finished collating my 2008 Topps yet, but I know I have a lot of holes so the cards are very much appreciated.

Matt from Cardboard Conundrum and I have been e-mailing back and forth trying to work out a deal.  He finally enticed me to trade away my 2010 Topps National Chicle Yaz auto I pulled from a pack last spring along with a few other cards.

2010 Panini Classics Julius Peppers (159/180)
While Julius may have moved on to the Bears I couldn't pass up this beautiful card

2010 Panini Threads Jimmy Clausen (239/280)
This is my first letter patch card and I love it.  Sure, Clausen may not have had the best rookie year, but I think he still has the tools to be a good NFL QB.

2010 Topps Allen & Ginter Josh Hamilton Relic
Believe it or not this is my first game-used card for my Josh Hamilton PC!

2008 Topps Allen & Ginter Chipper Jones Relic
I love the red jersey piece!

2008 Topps Allen & Ginter Jeff Francoeur Relic
Many Braves fans didn't seem to care for Francoeur, but I always enjoyed watching him play while he was in Atlanta.  I can never pass up cards of his I don't already have.

In addition to these cards I also received several random Braves cards and a few WWE and WWE Platinum cards from my want list.  This had to be one of the best trades I've made in my first year card blogging.  Thanks Matt!
