completed set. I had already worked out a trade with another blogger for last half-dozen cards that I needed, but that didn't stop me from hammering out a trade with the author of Highly Subjective and Completely Arbitrary.
I sent Brian a bubble mailer of Twinkies, which he seemed to appreciate and he returned the favor with the following:
I couldn't afford Mark Prior's cards when he first came up. I was only twenty-four and doing my best to bank a few bucks for a new set of wheels. Now I seem to have quite a collection of jersey cards and even a few autos!
Does anyone else wish Topps would go back to making a special All-Star insert set like the ones below? I liked that they kept the design consistent from year to year.
Hey, a new Kerry Wood card for my collection!
366 unique Kerry Wood cards. Excellent.
Alright, you may want to sit down for this one. I have an announcement.
It's official. I am starting a Brooks Kieschnick collection, but Kieschnick's Cubs cards. I know, you're shocked. I'm glad you sat down.
So, go on and click on my "haves" and see what you can do to expand my Kieschnick collection. I dare you!
Oh, and one more announcement... Brian is holding a group break and he is looking for others to jump in. He's planning on cracking open a few boxes of cards from the mid to late 90's and all he is asking in return is a trade package of twins in return. That's pretty hard to beat if you ask me.
Thanks for the trade and welcome to the blogosphere, Brian!
