Wicked Stays Wicked: Another Great Trade

I recently finished my second trade with The Cardboard Don, or Wicked, who almost changed his name, but then, at the last minute, preserved the blog we all know and love. A while ago he expressed interest in some of my trade bait, and we got started on our second trade.

Who doesn't love Archives? Wicked sent along a slew of Tigers from this great set. Of course, the Kaline is amazing. I now have a few different reprints of his rookie. Such a classic card. The Norms are awesome, too, and it's nice to see Chet again. I was a Lemon fan in my youth.

Some very nice Verlanders. And this was a new rookie for me. I bought a lot of Total at one time, and it's nice to finally get this card.

Here's the highlight of the trade. Always happy to score a bit more Verlander jerseyage. SPx designed some pretty nice looking game-used cards. What was the deal with Upper Deck's obsession with Xs?

Thanks for another great trade, Wicked, and I'm glad you're sticking around the old blog.

  1. Lemon was fun to watch! He would catch those popups right by his head and the occasional head first slide into first were always exciting. I also remember he got hit a lot. Good hustle player!
