I recently completed my first trade with Jared from Cards My Mother Didn't Throw Out. Jared wanted some of my Topps Heritage cards and in return he helped me out with a couple of sets that have been languishing on my want list for quite some time.
First, a single card from the 2000 Metal set.
That's Eric Munson - a card that I know I had pulled at least once in the emerald parallel version...but his base card has eluded for over 15 years. Now he's all mine!
The rest of the PWE (which was jam packed) was cards from my 2001 Topps Stadium Club want list. Jared managed to find 17 cards which I needed...bringing the PWE total to 18 cards for the cost of a single stamp. Awesome!!
Also, did you notice that I needed Eric Munson in the Stadium Club set too? Sheesh, that guy is elusive.
In addition to the above Stadium Club cards, Jared also included a trio of cards that were "less than perfect." He wrote a note saying that he wasn't sure how particular I was in terms of condition - and while the answer is "not at all" when dealing with my 1889 Allen & Ginter Fish set...I'm quite a bit more fussy when it comes to modern cards. However, I do know that some of you like collecting misprints (and miscut) cards - so if any of these strikes your fancy let me know!
Two of the cards clearly suffer from printing issues while the Offerman is crimped along the bottom.
Sort of unfortunate for me since all three cards represent needs for my set...but I'm too picky I guess!
Many thanks Jared - and for anyone who might want to trade, check out my want list and make an offer!
