Trade Post - Brad's Blog

It has been a couple weeks since I have posted, just been busy with work, family and Cub Scouts - I am now the Assistant Cub Master for my boys Scout Pack.  In addition it has been nasty hot and humid in So Cal and my card/computer room is the only room on the 2nd floor.  Despite the lack of time, I have been able to swing a couple awesome trades.  Tonight I thought I would share the latest, a trade with Brad from Brad's Blog.

Recently Brad broke his annual case of Topps Chrome and I followed along closely.  Part of it was to check out what great cards he would pull and part of it was just living vicariously through him.  I have a dream to buy a case of something some day but I am not sure it will ever happen.

Ultimately Brad was able to finish an extra set and I asked if he was willing to trade it.  We quickly made a combined card/cash deal and without buying a pack, I have my complete 2014 Topps Chrome set in its 220 card glory:

If any of you have traded with Brad, you know he is a generous guy and guess what else he included in the trade:

A 2013 Topps Chrome Buster Posey Gold Refractor!  It is serial numbered 17/50 and is a great addition to my collection.

Thanks for the great trade Brad!  I need to load up on some more Phillies for our next one.


  1. The gold parallels are my favorite of the chrome parallels! Very cool!

  2. Glad all the cards made it safely! The gold refractors really pop! I still have to scan what you sent
