It is no secret that I do not care much for mini cards. I hate the storage issue that goes with them along with the greater chance of them being lost and/or damaged. Last week I was going through my inserts and found a Cal Ripken GQ mini that had fallen under the row of regular inserts in my 1600 count box. Of course one of the corners was dinged even though it was in a penny sleeve. As a rule unless it is a Cardinal, I traded them as soon as I get them.
Of course I do not turn away a mini Cardinals if I need it. I just do not go out of my way trying to find them. But if I find someone who has other Cardinals I need, I will work out something for the minis also. Thus was the case with a recent trade with TCDB member engine614.
