Another monster trade post series begins! Yay, real cards!

A few weeks ago, when I was making a deal with Steve, he pointed me in the direction of a guy named Jeff with a card site that had stuff for trade and a want list up. (See how this all works? I traded with Bo, then I traded with the Mooss, who had traded with Bo and regaled me with a story of Bo trading in-person with some guy who lived near him in New York, who turned out to be Steve, who then pointed me toward Jeff. Whew!) Jeff and I looked over each others' lists, and we put together a fairly big deal that, hopefully as of this writing, Jeff's at home looking at and enjoying (it arrived Monday, but he was travelling, and I'm hoping he made it back before the snow messed everything up again).

This wasn't quite a Bo deal (total number of cards stayed under 600), but it was still pretty big, and while a lot of what I got was '90s stuff, I loved almost 5 dozen of the cards enough to scan 'em. Don't worry, I won't put them all in one post. In fact, I'm only going to include one card in this initial post to start you guys off, because you're going to need time to recover from the awesome, and because if ever a card deserved its own post, this is the one. Brace yourselves, readers, for this senses-shattering (I stole that from Stan Lee, dig?) monster of a card from the very underrated '94 Score set!


FEEL THE POWER OF KRUK!

This is without a doubt the best card I've ever seen of his, it encapsulates the 1993 Phillies' entire season, and as soon as I saw it for the first time, I thought "Wow, that's an all-time great baseball card."

You'll probably get sick of hearing this over what's gonna be a long series of trade posts, but thanks, Jeff! (Thanks again to Steve too, who pointed me in Jeff's direction!)

For the rest of you: more coming as I write it. I could rapid-fire some posts at times while working this, so brace yourselves!

  3. Glad it worked out! And just to make things come full circle, I found out about Jeff after Bo posted about him
