A few weeks back I got an email from a reader named Pam who indicated she had a bunch of Giants cards off my want list. Pam is a fellow Giants fan and we struck up a trade to exchange some of our duplicates. I am going to show a small sampling of the huge stack of cards I got in this trade.
My collection is sorely lacking in Mother's Cookies cards. These are regional sets that were put out in the 80s and 90s and were usually a stadium give away. Pam sure helped me out in this area as she sent a stack of 52 different Mother's cookies cards from 4 different sets. Here is a sampling of one from each of the sets:
JT made my list of favorite Giants first basemen in a past Weekly Contest. I have revived the favorite player by position this week for third basemen if you haven't entered, check it out.
Speaking of JT, here is a nice grouping of 9 additional JT cards I scored in this trade.
This batch of cards had a smattering of just about everything, for example here are some retired Giants greats from way back:
I even scored a vintage need in this trade:
I am a big fan of the small box sets Fleer put out and I would eventually like to get all the Giants form those sets. These 3 surely did help:
And finally, I will end the trade post with a couple scans of some of my favorite other cards that came my way:
Believe it or not, these scans represent a small fraction of all the Giants goodness Pam sent my way. Thank you for reaching out and reading the blog Pam and thank you for the great trade!
