I just completed an awesome trade with Nick from For Card's Sake. I sent him over a Jered Weaver GU as well as some Yanks for his PC. This is the first time that we traded. Nick sent me over some solid stuff. He mailed me a GU, some serial numbered, and some base for my player PC.
Lopes is now the first base coach on the Dodgers. We stole him from Philly so he can teach our boys in blue how to run the bases well. Lopes is getting a lot of credit for helping out Matt Kemp so far. Kemp has been hitting the ball well, fielding better and stealing bases at a good rate. Kemp also have a more focused aura to him. He looks like the next Dodger superstar. Thank you, Davey for helping Kemp reach a higher level.
How do you guys pick what gets the top loader treatment?
Also, why did Topps stop making Stadium Club? The photography was awesome year in and year out. Upper Deck was always known for its great photos as well. With Upper Deck out of the mix, maybe Topps can bring this set back.
Sports Card Forum. The Sports Card forum is great, don't get me wrong. The site is well run and very organized. But, it is hard enough for me to keep up with trades made through the Platter. I am still involved in a monthly team traders group. The group works like this, you pick a team. In this case, I have the White Sox, since the Dodgers were already take. Then whatever other team that you are grouped with, you would then send at least 20 cards too. That is always fun. You never know what your going to get.
There are a handful of people on the Sports Card Forum that I have traded with a lot. Even some bloggers, I have traded with through this site. The trade that I just got was from a guy named Todd that I have traded with on several occasions. He collects Cardinals and other GUs and autos. I sent him a 2011 Topps Barry Larkin auto for this Rafael Furcal auto. I have never owned a Furcal auto before so I had to try and get this card. It is also numbered to 50!
Thank you to you both for the cards!
