How often to you swap cards with another collector of the same team? Some teams like the Red Sox, Dodgers, Yankees and the Cubs have multiple bloggers and Twitter folk who collect them. Then there are others like the Marlins . . . well, who just don't even have one representative. Please, correct me if I'm wrong, but I have a stack of Marlin cards I'd be happy to dump on someone!
I'm lucky to have other Cub fans who look out for me. Some tip me off on neat cards which have just hit the market, others save their duplicates for me and a few pick up cards for me knowing that I'm sure to drool over them.
I never find it difficult to trade with another Cub fan and often I feel like I'm scrambling to find something to send in a supplemental return package to help balance out the score. This is one of those times!
Once a Cub, just sent me a small card box crammed full of cards I needed in return for a box I sent him a week or so ago.
Boom! What we have here is a huge stack of 2018 Topps Big League and high quality smattering of inserts and Players Weekend parallels.
nine cards away from finishing the Big League master set, which I'm stoked about. Sounds like a Sportlots.com purchase may soon be on the horizon! If you have any of the nine drop me a line and I'll be sure to send something nice your way in return!
Matt sent me a note wondering if buy back cards counted as a new entry into my player collections. I guess he was assuming I had the 2002 Kerry Wood card, which I didn't have. I did a double take when I found I was without one.
BOOM! Three color, numbered parallel VOGELMONSTER relic card!
Topps Now Home Run Derby cards?
I've always loved the Topps Opening Day blue parallels.
Kris Bryant? Who dat?
Ooooooh! Big League Cubs parallels!
Lastly, Matt gifted me a Road to Opening Day Topps NOW set.
Matt, you've outdone yourself yet again. School is ramping up and I haven't had much time as of late, but I really enjoyed taking a break and going through your package. Lots of fun Cubs mojo in there for sure!
I'll be on the lookout for some fun Cubs stuff at future card shows to help even things out!
