My son's baseball practice was rained out last night, so I finally had time to scan some cards that have been sitting on my desk since last Monday. This was the third and largest trade package that arrived on that day, all from Trading Card Database members. It was a 300 count box that came all the way from Canada. It had been forever since I mailed anything outside the US, so I had to ask the trader if postage would affect the deal. He assured me it would be less than $20. I was getting over 250 Cardinals in the deal, so I figured it was worth the chance. It cost me $15.50 and about 10 minutes in the post office, but I ended up spending less than a blaster to pull of the trade. The cost per card was about 6 cents. I could not have bought these cards at a show for that price. In addition, you do not see a lot of the cards at shows. Here are the cards from the 1980s.
