Two weeks ago, at a card show, I came across a bin filled with team sets. 3 for $5.00. Sure! I might find some trade bait here. I ended up taking 3 with me. A 1991 OPC Giants set (already in the mail), a 05-06 Parkhurst Columbus Blue Jackets set I have no idea why, but, I got my first ever Duvie Westcott card!
Back to the team set pickups, the 3rd set was a '91 O-Pee-Chee Braves set. Yes, that's the team set that includes the pretty rare Chipper Jones OPC rookie card. It was in there, but had a dinged corner to take it down from mint condition. I had no intention of keeping the set. I just knew there was someone that had that card on their most wanted list. I googled my way to the blog in question, and ended up trading a few cards for a few cards. Since I didn't pay a lot for the Chipper originally, I didn't want a lot. I could have ebay'd it, but I figured a fellow card blogger would get more joy from it.
I still ended up very happy, trading $1.66 worth of cards for these:
And to wrap it up, 15 cards from the base set get crossed off my list.
Thanks for the great cards!
