Trade with Thoughts & Sox and some TRADE BAIT

I recently made a trade with Adam from Thoughts and Sox.  Adam had read my blog and offered up a care package of Pirates past and present.  Since Adam collects Red Sox he has lots of Jason Bay Red Sox cards and was kind enough to bip me with these, the first thing I saw when I opened the package.

 Nothing like 8 Jason Bay 2010 Topps cards to get things going....

I have started to add more Jason Bay base cards to my PC over the past year, but have been avoiding the Red Sox years because that trade still bothers me.  Adam was kind enough to knock out a few that I needed
 and a few more that I needed along with a Van Slyke for the PC.
 This is some more of the highlights.  I have often seen that Jack Wilson auto on COMC and ebay, but never pulled the trigger on it.  Fortunately now I don't have to.  He also included a numbered McCutchen that I needed to add to my Finest rainbow.  I tried many times to scan the Wilson bowman heritage chrome, but it doesn't scan well for some reason.  Just know that it looks amazing in person.
 some vintage players on current cards and a current player on a vintage looking card.  Oh and an Al Oliver rookie cup card
 3 high numbered 2008 Heritage cards and 6 First edition UD cards, one featuring Jose Bautista
 O-Pee-Chee and a Mike Gonzalez first edition UD card.
everything else

Thanks for the trade Adam.  I hope we can do it again.  I got some more Red Sox cards started in a pile for when we do.

Last night I was at Target and saw these memorabilia packs on the pegs in the card section.  I decided to take a gamble and test my luck.  I'm glad I did because I got some great trade bait.  As I was opening the packs I immediately thought of who might want these cards.  If you do in fact want them leave a comment below and let's work out a trade.

The first pack I opened was 2009 spX.  Not much unique stuff in here except for the Nate McLouth dicut card for my PC.  The Hamilton is a sweet looking card.  I don't know why I didn't buy more of these when they came out.

Up next was a pack of 2010 Topps Series 1.  I've busted a ton of these before so I wasn't expecting much.  I was right....

until I saw these two cards
Ok, I know Greg is going to want the Kershaw gold card so until he says no, this card is going in his pile for our next trade. 
My last and final pack was a 2008 UD 1st Edition pack.  It looks like I got another card for Greg in this pack in the Russel Martin.  All cards below are for trade.  I also got another Jose Bautista which I showed above in my post from Thoughts and Sox but didn't feel the need to scan it in again.

My guaranteed memorabilia hit of the pack was this Old Judge Lance Berkman jersey card which I'm sure the Dimwit would want if he doesn't already have it.


  1. I love that Berkman. Let me see what I've got Pirates/Bay wise if it's FT.

  2. Oooo I'd definitely be interested in that Berkman if you don't work out a deal with Trey!!!! Dang you Trey, jumping in on my Astros, how dare you sir!!!!

  3. I'm glad you liked all the Pirates I sent. I'll save any Pirates I get for you.
