Trade w/ Brad's Blog

A while ago, Brad's posted a list of a small # of cards needed to complete this year's Upper Deck hockey base set. I hunted them down, threw in a 1991 Phillies O-Pee-Chee team set, as well as a trio of Flyers relics and sent them off. Surprisingly, the package coming this way didn't take its typical two weeks to get here. Considering I'm still waiting on a couple ebay items for beyond two weeks, I'm assuming its just balancing out the mailbag equation.

Firstly, there were a couple hits. I added my first two autograph member of the 2/14 binder with the acquisition of this card:

Again, the variety of that binder means Callix Crabbe is a guy that I, and only and I actively collect.

How's about another autograph?
The opening day 2013 hero for the Mets! He's got a pretty nice signature as well!

And finally, the brunt of the trade was the cards that would complete(*) my 2012 Archives set. I would have been more than happy with just these, but am more than happy to welcome the other cards in as well. Here's a sampling of some of my faves that will complete(*) the set.

Woo-hoo! Thanks for all the great cards, Brad!

(*) Or at least it would, if I wasn't a goober and had accidently mixed the gold foil parallel of Lance Berkman in with the other cards and not counted it when I was putting my zistle list together. It's the exact same stupid thing I did with a Miikka Kiprusoff gold parallel and this year's Score hockey.
