Trading with the Enemy

Turns out that AJ from The Lost Collector, aside from being a Yankees fan, is a really cool trader. This trade started back a couple of months but between work and life, the trade took longer to wrap up. He saw one of my Ginter posts and had some minis and a jersey relic to offer up.
Going to the Big Apple was a bunch a Yanks cards from 80's oddballs to present day items. The key card in the batch was an 2007 UD Elements Posada dual jersey relic that had pinstripes in each jersey cut.

Coming back was this batch of Allen & Ginters ...
Now clearly the Posada dual jersey trumps the Marcus Giles relic, but I did not have a relic from the 2007 A&G edition so I didn't mind. Also in this batch of minis is a '11 Gypsy Queen hobby box variation of Johnny Mize. AJ pointed out that even though Mize is pictured in pinstripes, the back of the card carries the St. Louis Cardinals logo. Eventually need to put a GQ list together but it's kind of on the back burner for the moment.

Next up, some Red Sox favorites that I'm sure AJ was eager to part ways with ...

And to round out the trade, some vintage Red Sox and Yankees for my All-Decade teams project.
Love the '78 ALCS card with Frank White trying to evade a sliding Mickey Rivers.

Thanks again for the trade AJ and look forward to trading with you again!

HELP ME!!!! With the 2011 Ginter release just days away, I will be attempting to collect the mini set and any mini inserts from this new edition. I do have a hobby box with me name on it for Wednesday, so that will get me a little bit of a head start. As for the base cards, SPs, hits, and any other cards in that come out of that box, they will be available for trade. If you can help, please, please drop me a line. For those of you still looking for 2011 Topps sparklies, I have a few from series 2, maybe I can grab a couple of minis for these???

Anyhow, drop me a line if you're not into the minis, and I'm sure I can find something to trade you.
