Classic Variety in a Trade Package
I think some of my favorite trades are with other Cardinals fans. Whether it be with fellow bloggers, message board members, or email friends it always nice to exchange my extra cards for some wantlist hits. My box of Cardinals doubles is well over 2000 thanks to numerous blind team trades. I have them sorted by year to make trading a little easier. Sometimes I even find a card that I need or a variation that I overlooked while going through the box. Last week I sent a package to an email trader with a small stack of early 1980s Cardinals. My end of the trade arrived Tuesday.
I do not have many of the Classic cards from the late 1980s or early 1990s. I had planned to buy some during the COMC Black Friday sale last year, but was shocked at some of the prices. The 2 purple cards did complete one of the 1989 sets.
