Trading and Making it to 4,000

Was able to get a nice little trade done recently with TradingCardDB member clmdesign and picked up the following:

A quartet of 1981 Topps cards I needed as well as a fleer and my first 1982 Fleer Stamps of Damaso Garcia. Excellent adds and look forward to another trade in the future with clmdesign.

With today's Santa Lot 20, we make it through 4,000 cards - and it has taken give or take - 9 months to do it. I wish today's 20 would be spectacular in some way to signify it, but as you see below - not so much...


Always great to get more cards from the set, however, given the number I also got that were duplicates, I was originally hoping for much better.

The rest

No other keepers today, so let's look at the traders. We talk enough about the hockey Legends Classics set, so a couple comments about the 1991 football Upper Deck cards. I like the Aerial Threat cards - simple but effective in highlighting both players, and decent design for early 90s cards. Likely would be an insert set in this day and age, but not so back then.

Well - that's it for getting through 4,000 cards - hope you continue to join me for another 4,000 and beyond!
