Catching up on a couple of trades

Got two trades to recap here tonight that are overdue so I'll get right into them.

First up is a trade with Justin from Justin's World who called dibs on a Trade Bait post of 2011 Topps insert cards. He wanted the gold Hoffman and the Heyward Red Diamond card. In addition to those, I tossed him some Cubbies cards from here and there ranging from the mid 70's to some oddball 80's to I believe a couple of recent Cubs cards.

In exchange all I wanted was a 2011 Kimball Champion mini Clay Buchholz. Justin was generous enough though to load a package of some Sox cards from the 80/90's. But it was these Sox Fav's that
needed to be shown.

Justin had crossed off a card from my Red Sox All-Time Roster list with the 2005 Tony Graffanino, a card that I didn't know existed. I had seen his Heritage card of him as a Red Sox, but not this one. In any case, another card off the list. Also was another card for my Youkilis collection, a 2010 Bowman Platinum and a couple of other Sox I can find a place for in my collection.

Thanks again Justin, I appreciate the cards and maybe I can send you a whole lot more Cubs in the future!


Second of the trade recaps is from Nachos Grande's Trade Stacks. The one card of the three I wanted was the 2010 Topps National Chicle Jon Lester. What I had going his was was a couple of 2011 Topps "60" cards and threw in some Reds I thought Nacho would like as well.

In addition to the Lester was a Nomah I could use for my player collection and some other Sox cards as well. Thanks again and I really like that Trade Stack concept. Looks like you have done well with that — I know I check back to see if there's anything I can use/like.
