I love checking my email and seeing a message from someone who has seen my wantlists and has something to offer me. A couple weeks ago, The Lost Collector contacted me about a Mark Reynolds purple refractor from 2010 Topps Chrome. It worked out great, because I happened to have a purple refractor he was interested in. Most people that have traded with me know that I try to be generous with my offerings and include a few bonuses here and there, but in this instance, I was caught during a rough week and had very little time for cards. I ended up sending just the one card (and a COLLECT sticker, of course), so I was a little dissappointed in myself when I got an envelope with the Reynolds and three bonus cards, all of which I wanted. I definitely got the better end of the deal, especially considering he contacted me again about a Topps #3 he had for me, free of charge. Needless to say, I will be starting a little pile of Yankees to make up for it. Here are the cards he sent me:
The trade starter, #'ed 033/599.
2010 Bowman Chrome Scott Sizemore RC that I reeeeeeally wanted.
2011 Topps Justin Verlander ToppsTown
2011 Topps Arizona Diamondbacks (w/Justin Upton)
I find that the base cards of players I collect seem to elude me these days, though I usually end up with a fair chunk of the inserts and parallels. Anyone else notice that?
Thanks again for the great trade!
