Just like the Hot Stove League right now in MLB, collectors are dying for some action and trading is feeding the desire.
What started out as a simple plain white enveleope trade for three update cards turned into a huge a deal with 2x3 Heroes that included my stash of 2007 Allen & Ginter for quite a few '12 Topps Update (only need 3 more cards to finish the base!) and plenty of Tigers.
A couple of Trammell's, a Verlander,
The heart of the deal was a 2012 Topps Allen & Ginter Miguel Cabrera mini black relic (say that ten times fast)
This was a great swap and we're going to do another real soon for 2008 A&G, I am sure for some Tigers. I am sure it is easy for a guy from Chicago to part with Detroit cards as it is for me to give away White Sox.
As they are saying in Nashville, a trade that benefits both squads.
I want to thank Robert at $30 A Week Habit for keeping up with all the things I have been sending his way and the plug he gave me on his site, maybe even forced trades. I found a Joe Sakic RC in the bin at my LCS for a small price and knew $30 A Week could take it in. His blog is great and his insanity collection has spawned my own which I will share later this week.
Keep it hot on the corner, Pat
