Time for another trade post and this one was a nice one (well they are all nice but this one was particularly nice). Dustin over at Coot Veal and the Vealtones dropped me a note as he was interested in a Tigers Auto I pulled out of 2012 Topps Chrome. As trades often do, this one ballooned into a big Tigers for Giants trade with tons of cards switching hands. I scanned quite a few cards so let's get to the highlights of the trade package.
These cards had all failed to make it onto my extensive checklist and I always like get it more up to date. I have gotten a few different Conlon cards in trades lately and they are some of the coolest cards, I love the photos of the old time players. There are a ton of Giants in the set and I can't wait to add some more. The Hoyt card is very nice and shiny. His uniform in cards is always a crapshoot, glad Topps decided to include him as a Giant in this set. These Fleer World Series cards are awesome - I have never had one before and now I want more. I have some of the stickers from the 80s whose backs used a similar format and style but having this one on cardboard is excellent.
One more scan of some of the favorites. I will tell you that this trade took some serious time to file away in the Giants' binders but I had a ton of fun doing it.
Dustin, thanks for a great trade!
