One of my more frequent trading partners of late has been Matt from Red Cardboard. I send him Reds and he sends me Griffeys. They are especially appreciated as close to 100% of the pre-retirement card he sends me are Reds-era which is exactly when I wasn't collecting. I always end up with a bunch of new-to-me specimens of Griffitude.
This week Matt sent me the cardboard equivalent of a steak dinner. Check it out:
|2013 cards! These get me very excited as I don't open packs like I used to. These are also the first Griffeys I've seen in person from 2013 Archives.|
|I spotted a bunch of base cards I was missing which is a big help. I sometimes start posts for sets I don't have the base cards for then I go to scan the thing and find it's not there. Very embarassing....|
|Have you ever gotten a card and it's parallel in the same stack? It's like finding true love.|
|I'm going to have to sit down and see where I stand on the complete set of UD Griffey Gallery. I bet I'm very close if not there by now.....|
