Jason, over at Average Joe Collector, contacted me about my 2012 Archives want list. He proposed a 3-for-1 deal and I was happy to oblige. I sent him a Jimmy Rollins relic card and he granted me with one reprint and two SPs.
Bye bye, J-Rol!
Here's my side of the haul:
First the two SPs of Von Hayes and Lance Parrish. I like the SPs from the Archives set because they highlight some of the fan favorites from years past. All too often hall-of-famers are given spots in card sets, but solid performers like Von Hayes, a notorious "Cubs Killer", are forgotten about. No worries, Von! I haven't forgotten that you hit 0.317 against my Cubs during your career!
Here's a Hall-of-Famer that is often overlooked: Robin Yount. He collected 3,000 hits, but because he played for the small market Milwaukee Brewers he is often overlooked.
Thanks for the trade, Jason!
Please check out my want list for 2012 Topps Archives. I'd be happy to swing a trade!
