When I posted about my big collection purchase and shared some of my finds I had a few collectors reach out and work out a trade for some of the cards. Despite some really nice trades and purchase I worked out, this was perhaps my favorite. Chris from The Collector shared a pretty awesome card that he had and I didn't hesitate a bit when he offered it up for trade. In typical blogger fashion, I will save the gem for the end but I also scored some other nice cards for my collection.
First up some Giants needs. I can't believe I never picked up that Mays catch, it is a beautiful card. The Panda card is a great one, the 2010 Finest design is one of my favorites with the team logo in the background. I like that Sandoval is blowing a bubble in his fielding position, he is looking in pretty good shape as well.
Here are a couple of great looking 49er cards, those first few years of Ultra produced beautiful cards. Merton Hanks is one of my favorite Niners of all time, I have even thought of building a collection of his cards but haven't pulled the trigger.
These are two parallels from last year's Heritage release, they are the bright yellow back variations. I didn't have any of these yet so super nice additions to my collection.
However, here is the star of the show:
Chris, I can't thank you enough, thanks for the awesome trade!
