One of the many joys of collecting cards is the occasions when you get to add another fellow collector to your circle of traders, and today I feature my haul from my first trade with one fellow collector and blogger. In what I guess is a rare trade of vintage for modern, I sent a pile of Braves to Johnny's Trading Spot, including a bunch of Ginter minis--- I know who could have guessed--- for this nice collection of 64's from my wantlist.
As a set builder who has a long way to go with this set, I really dont have anything profound to say about any of these cards other than to say they all are very much needed and they get me that much closer to finishing the set. Thanks for the great trade Johnny and hopefully we can pull off another one sometime soon.
I know I have lots of folks out there to trade with....so let me know if you want to pull the trigger on a trade.
Let's make a deal!!!!

I have traded a few times with very dodger blue Garvey Cey Russell Lopes and well he always seems to outdo me, well way back in the beginning of this whole trading thing he sent me i think a 660 count box stuffed full of awesome Blue Jays cards and I have been trying to even the score ever since. A few months ago I swore I had accomplished that feat... here are my attempts-- part 1 and part 2 and I really thought I had won. I mean I dont do no bipping but surely a pile of unannounced 1965's would win any trade right???? WRONG!! dang it Jim you trumped me again.... Yep there they are a pair of 1955s and 1956s taken right off my wantlists.....I lose..... errr wait... I think I won!!! 55s and 56s will always win esp ones that are needed to finish a set.... off course if that was the extent of the package it would have been awesome
Nope those weren't all that he sent... there they about half of what was my remaining 1978 wantlist.... blown the heck up to the point that these here are all that remain to be located:
1978 Topps want list:
21 36 102 155 273 360 400 407 500 709
and as always some nice current Blue Jay cards...and some old school Pirates... and I do love that Joe Carter card.... touch 'em all Joe, you'll never have a bigger hit than that!!!!
That is all.... as I go back to the drawing board to figure out how to top grcl..... and you too can one up me in a trade by sending any 55's and 56s you have heck.... I have a pile of them to trade so we can work out a deal for them!!!
Thanks for the trade.

Obviously one of these is not like the other, which means I shouldn't have assumed that the packaging saying 5 exclusive mini parallel cards, didn't just mean red border /33s. I have seen these listed on ebay from time to time, and wasnt sure if people were talking about the super mini 1/1s that come from the mini mini rip cards, or something else. I seen listing talking about mini 1/1s that are in retail boxes, but i haven't read too much about them either. I wondered if maybe they were included inside the boxtops like the full sized glossy 1/1s. I guess not, so if anyone was wondering, turns out the glossy mini 1/1s are mixed in with the red minis.
If you are interested the Arenado and Portnoy are for trade as well as the Napoli I suppose. Heck for that matter if anyone collects wrappers, the wrapper is available as well.
I should add if anyone reading this has any red border /33 minis I am more than willing to trade... I am over 50% complete on this set.
