I love all the people of the blog community. The traders are very nice and generous. Sometimes, I get an email from a fellow collector that tells me they have cards from my want lists. They also state that I don't need to send anything in return or just send me whatever cards you feel necessary. The kind bloggers just want to help out one of there own.
Of course, I will always send something in return. I am also a nice blogger and if you scratch my back then, I send cards to you. The expression goes something like that.
The Angels, in Order sent me these two 1981 Topps cards. Tom knew that I needed these for my 1981 Topps Chase. He saw that they were on my want list and decided to send them my way. Just like that, I got a couple cards that I can cross off my list.
Be on the look out, Tom, a bubble mailer will be heading to your mailbox very soon. I have some Angels that need a good home and my house of Dodger blue isn't suited for them.
Oddly, the last two cards that I need for my 1981 Topps Chase are Dodgers. I still am looking for the Dodgers team card and a Bill Russell. I thought that I had both of those but, I can't find them in my binders. I may have misplaced them but, according to my records, they are still needed at the Platter.
Wrigley Wax. The name of the dude that runs that blog is Paul. This is the first time that Paul has sent me cards. I discovered his blog through the contest held at the blog, Jaybarker's Junk. Wrigley Wax finished a very respectable second in the Blog of the Year voting.
Paul checked out my Most Wanted List and saw that I was looking for some 70s Topps Dodgers. He sent me an email saying that he had a Maury Wills and a Bobby Valentine to spare. He also warned me about the condition. Paul also stated that he wasn't looking for anything in return. What a nice fellow!
These cards are great! I don't care about condition of vintage cards. They will fit nicely into my team set binder. I will also try to find something to send him. I will have to get him something special because he was very kind in his emails. Be patient, Paul, I will send you some goods.
Rants, Reviews, and Fandom emailed me about a trade. He wasn't looking for much in return but, knew that he had some cards that I would enjoy. Trey is an Astros collector and luckily I haven;t made a trade with an Astros collector in awhile. Trey told me to send him whatever that I feel is suitable. I love that trust among bloggers. I will send him some cardboard awesomeness.
This is a red bordered 2011 Topps Update Matt Kemp. This card is commemorating his 2 home runs that he hit at the home run derby. Kempy will dominate the contest next year. Move over Robinson Cano, Kemp will put on a show.
I thank you all for the kindness. I am a little behind on return packages but, you will all get something nice.
