Trade Time : Cynicalbudda and The Lost Collector with Rosen auto !


I finally got my desk mostly cleared off and can get down to some long overdue trade posts!



First up is Cynicalbuddha over at Collector's Crack .

He had requested some trading action and I responded. He quickly sent me a very nice assortment of Tribe cards while I, not so quickly, have a package ready to send to him.



His package starts with a six pack of mini cards from Topps 205, 206 and Allen & Ginter.
I love the minis but I have to get some of the album pages specifically designed for them.
The tiny cards really get lost in the regular pages.



Next we have some 206 bronze parallels and a Heritage, Jordan Brown, rookie!

Sticking with the wide variety theme, we have a Tris Speaker Legends card, an Upper Deck X die-cut, 2011 Lou Marson Heritage and a Gold Justin Masterson.


Still more variety with

Victor Martinez Bowman Gold, Shin-Soo Choo Topps 60 and Cliff Lee First Year.



And finally a batch of 2011 Topps Opening Day.

Thank you very much Mark for the great Tribe cards ! I hope you enjoy your package as well.




Another fat package of Indian cards came from AJ, The Lost Collector.

He also sent a couple of wrappers including this 2011 Topps Heritage hobby version.


A J sent a large variety of cards also, from a 2011 Gold Topps "Pronk" clear back to a '58 Topps Larry Raines ! With a couple of chrome cards in between.


More gold with a 2007 Bowman Josh Barfield. A Bob Feller Million Dollar Moments, purple Starquest Grady Sizemore and A&G Jhonny Peralta.


Established veteran Grady Sizemore and newbie Josh Tomlin.

Sizemore seems to be back to his old self and Tomlin is a very crafty pitcher who doesn't have to be overpowering.

Gone but not forgotten are Manny and Kenny.

2007 Heritage Jeremy Sowers and 1996 Topps Eddie Murray.

Brian Giles on a 1997 Circa card. They were very bright and colorful.

Robby Alomar was a future HOF'er on this Fleer "Futures" card in 2001.

Robby again with David Justice and Manny Ramirez.


One of my lesser known collections is Pinnacle Inside. I was always a sucker for gimmicks and oddball cards. The Pinnacle cans were a unique product which passed over to a couple other manufacturers as well.

Here is a base Richie Sexon and a Club Edition Gary Sheffield.



That was AJ's initial package.

Then a few days ago I received another envelope from him.

Inside I found a personalized auto from Al Rosen !!

AJ had sent a TTM request to Mr. Rosen for himself, me and another collector !

What a gracious act! I don't know how to thank you for this !!


Thank you, thank you, thank you !!

Thanks very much AJ, for all the cards!
