Brad, of the aptly named Brad's Blog, and I have made a couple of trades and in the trade prior to this one, Brad had a couple of cards that I really wanted but couldn't get included in the deal. I reached out to Brad and he was able to put together a nice package of cards for me and in return I sent him some Phillies including a nice extra 1975 Mike Schmidt I had picked up while building my set. Here is what I got in return from Brad:
Finally, the two centerpieces to the deal for me:
my quest for the 2011 Chrome Giants Rainbow (minus the 1/1s) and these two were big needs. I now only need 1 each of the Sepia and Gold parallels making the quest a little closer to reality. I have some tough gets left but I am hoping to keep looking for good deals and trades and hopefully I can acquire all but the reds in the coming year.
