The tradin' box is back from Potch

The Tradin' Box

Here's how it works :

All you have to do is have a favorite team and request a trade. I will fill the the box with 50-75 cards from the team of your choice, and send it to you. Once you have it in your hot little hands, you review the contents, and hopefully, refill it with Tribe cards (whatever you feel is equal to what I sent) and send it back. It's that easy !

If you would like a game-used or auto included let me know and if I have anything available it's yours!

Potch, over at Potch Wheeler and the Cardboard Heroes ,
saw my last Tradin' Box post and made the request.

He must have liked what I sent him as the box came home filled with a plethora of Tribe cardness!

First some shiny minis from 1987 Fleer.

These cards measure 1-3/16 x 2-9/16" and have a very high gloss finish.They were available only through hobby dealers and came boxed in a complete set of 120 cards with 18 team logo stickers.

Topps, not to be out done by Fleer, also had mini cards for 1987. Topps elected to sell them by the pack. 7 cards to a pack with 36 packs to a box.These also have a high gloss or "Tiffany" finish and are slighty larger at 2-1/8 x 3".

There was a very wide variety of card brands and years in Potch's box,

from the mid 1070's right up to 2011.

Some greats lke Thome and Lofton.

And a really cool Tribe logo sticker.

Some stars are here now, some are gone and some are on their way.

The base and charcoal 2008 Upper Deck Baseball Heroes set.

Future Hall of Fame ?

I also got some sparkly from Potch !

Diamond Anniversary Lou Marson.

Cognac version of Travis Buck.

I need a lot of these two versions.

Once I get through all my trade packages, I will make a want list.

This was just a sampling of the cards in the box.

Thank you very much for the trade !!
