Early Christmas presents: the final trade post of 2011

Gotta acknowledge the trade cards I've received in the past couple of days before the hustle and bustle of Christmas celebrations and New Year's parties.

First, Derek of Tomahawk Chopping sent me a couple cards as a thank you for the group break:

Macho Harris is a stud. I got so little GQ this year, that I'm really happy to get that BJ (teeheehee)

Next up, Rhubarb Runner sent me a bunch of Colorado Rockies.    

Wait...what? Ok, so Michael Cuddyer was a Twin for all of these cards, but he's a Rockie now.

I went through the process of figuring out that Cuddyer just signed his 2004 Topps card for a fan before coming across this post.  Oh well. 

 Lastly, some cards of the smaller persuasion.  What an awesome package.

The last trade package came in a Christmas card from Colbey of Cardboard Collections (hooray for alliteration). Inside were these:

And there was one card that I absolutely love:

Just look at the Die Cut edge.  That is fan-freakin-tastic.  I showed this card to my wife (which usually doesn't get the reaction I hope for) and she said, "oh, is that supposed to be like his career going up in flames?"  Oh well. 

Thanks, Derek, David, and Colbey!



Merry Christmas !!

Hopefully a package full of Dimples isn't considered a bipping, is it?

Merry Christmas, dude!

I have the Marino version of that card and it is one of the favorites I have in my Marino collection.
