A couple of trades in the mail today.
The first comes from Sam over at The Daily Dimwit. He had expressed interest in collecting the Hollywood manu-relics from American Pie. He and his wife are completing the word "Hollywood" out of them, no matter the person on the card. They had two 'O's but needed a third, which I had. He recently held a Chrome group break and pulled a refractor Drabek auto, which I expressed interest in:
Speaking of Drabek, these autos mark my 13th and 14th of his:
4 regular Chrome
1 refractor Chrome 123/499
1 gold Chrome 25/50
4 Triple Threads auto/relics 60/99, 23/75, 66/75, 37/50
1 Bowman Chrome
1 Topps 60 (from series 2)
1 Topps Next 60 (from Update)
1 in person auto (from eBay, looks legit though)
I'm no prospector but he is the only Blue Jay with a ton of affordable autos in recent products. If you have any, I am definitely interested, especially Chrome colors I don't yet have.
The second trade comes from Brian over at Play at the Plate. He wanted an American Pie relic for his wife. Seems that the American Pie set is a favorite of the wives eh? In return he sent these:
Like Sam's cards, I haven't been to the post office yet but I will be soon and you'll have your cards shortly! Thanks for the trade!
The final piece of mail contained this:
Speaking of 2011 variations, should I scan them and show them like I did 2010? I seemed to have a positive response to the 2010s but that could be that no one really saw those. 2011s seemed pretty familiar to all of us, seeing as how they were everywhere in Update and we all bought a ton of 2011 flagship. Let me know if you want to see them and I'll post them in the future.
