Today I'll look at the baseball cards I received in the trade with Greg over at The Collective Mind blog. Again I really think I got the better end of the deal. I received a ton of great Braves and Red Sox cards and many were Gypsy Queen and Allen & Ginter which is not something I really have a lot of. I like both sets but unless I see singles at shows the best I can do is a pack of each when they come out so the volume of these cards spanning different years/sets was awesome.
And oh the memories. These are too cool.
Rice and Yaz are both top 3 all-time players for me and it is great seeing some of the legends from the early years of baseball on cards like Tris Speaker here.
These Pacific cards were always cards I liked for some reason. They look even better with Braves and Red Sox greats on them.
I'd never seen this set so it was fun to see these cards. I definitely want to look for more singles from the set.
I also received plenty of personal collection guys in addition to Braves and Red Sox.
I can cross these off my lists. Love these retired legends and current PC guys in these Gypsy Queen sets. That Buckner card really is awesome.
Thanks again to Greg for all the cards. I've had so much fun looking through them all. I thought this Dempster card has a really good looking photo and really captured my emotions for this trade.
