Delivery Time! Napkin Doon Knocks Cards Off the 'Ol Want List!

Scott - from the newly launched "The Adventures of Napkin Doon" blog - and I recently completed our first trade.  I sent him a Derek Jeter card from 2001 Topps HD that he needed.  In return, Scott sent me a few cards that I needed, plus he gained himself a few entries into my contest, and he managed to send me a couple of Larkin cards that I didn't yet own!  All in all, it was a great trade!

2011 Topps:
Diamond parallels:
19.  Derek Lowe
133.  Miguel Tejada
212.  Pedro Feliz
225.  Josh Willingham
292.  Darren Ford

I now have almost 64% of the diamond set complete.  I've also updated my want list to include the diamond cards that I am still missing from Series 1.  Any help you can give me is appreciated!  

2001 Topps HD:
24.  Jeromy Burnitz

56.  Sean Casey

76.  Trot Nixon

86.  Alex Gonzalez

I haven't had anyone trade me 2001 Topps HD in quite awhile - so these four cards are definitely appreciated.  I'm still not overly optimistic that I'll finish this set (at least, not without buying another box of the stuff) but it's still fun to try and see what I might be able to acquire from gracious blog readers out there!

2011 Topps Heritage:
80.  Jay Bruce
103.  Brandon Phillips
120.  Bronson Arroyo

I was on the fence about whether I or not I wanted to try and collect the 2011 edition of Topps Heritage.  I did buy a blaster of the set this year (which is more than I bought of Heritage all last year) but, at the moment, I'm still undecided on whether I want to dedicate the time and resources necessary to complete the set!

Scott also threw in a couple of Larkin cards for me - both of which will get their own chance to shine in my ongoing Barry Larkin Collection series - so I won't show those off right now!

Thanks for the trade Scott!  And, as always, if anyone else would like to trade - check out my want list and make an offer!
