At the End of the Rainbow is My Own Card Shop

No, I guess that isn't entirely true.  I've never found the end of a rainbow.  So I don't exactly know what's there, but my own personal card shop would be a pretty sweet find.

The above title is a product of a couple of similarly themed trade packages: a PWE from Golden Rainbow Cards and a yellow bubbler from It's like having my own Card Shop, both containing cards of my beloved Cubs.

I sent a Justin Upton mini to Bryan and he sent back a couple of Cubs from Series 2 Topps.

These are my first cards from Series 2 and I'm happy to add them to my collection.  Poor Travis Wood, maybe someday the offense will give you some run support.  At least he doesn't have the "pleasure" of having to rely on Mr. Marmol to nail the 9th inning any longer.  Carlos was a good guy; I hope he finds his filthy slider and control in L.A.

Be sure to save your unwanted Atlanta Barves for Bryan at Golden Rainbow Cards.  Thanks, Bryan!

Next up...

I helped the son of the Daniel, author of It's like having my own Card Shop, by sending a couple dozen Topps Opening cards and some random D'back goodness.  It's awesome when fathers and sons can collect together and I was glad to help.  My dad AND mom were both into collecting back in the day.  Good times!

I recently posted my Kerry Wood "have list" at the top of my blog and Daniel gave me four more cards to add.

Man, that 2007 Topps Chrome is one nice looking card (middle picture).

He also sent a handful of Mark Prior cards (not pictured), the 2012 Flashbacks card of Ernie Banks and lots of minis!
Minis from five different sets.  Holy cow!

Plus, one of my favorite dual player cards!
2000 Topps Latin Heat insert: featuring Roberto Clemente and Vlad the Impaler.

Overall, what a great return for my Cubs' collection.  Thanks, Daniel!
