Here is another long overdue trade post, I did finally get some return items back out to Jim of gcrl fame. His blog has been on hiatus since July of 2015 but he hasn't slowed down on the trade front. All the Dodgers bloggers are eager to get the Giants cards out of their collection and I am a willing recipient.
Here are my favorites from the package he sent:
This package contained a lot of gold, Topps parallels from a number of different Topps releases. I have contemplated a run at all the gold parallels but haven't put a lot of focus on it to date, although I have completed the team sets the last few years. I suspect the farther away I get from the release dates of the early 2000's, it will be much more challenging to finish those sets. Jim helped me out with a few.
When I got to this sweet orange relic of former Giants Marco Scutaro I thought it might be the highlight of the package but then this popped out....
