I start off with my winnings from Community Gums contest. This was a while ago but they wanted you to guess what cards would be pulled out of a 2008 Topps Moments and Milestone box. I picked the Prince Fielder 50 home runs cards and I think I picked card 47 or something. Well there was on Prince Fielder in there homer #8 and I just got it in the mail. Thanks to Jon over at Community Gum
While I was never a big fan of the set, I mean there a billion cards in it, I don't mind a Princey #d to 150.
Next I noticed that Tony over at the Common Card Man posted the trade he and I just did. He had a huge need list and contacted me back in December right before I moved if I wanted to do a trade. I had blogged about how many Topps extras I had sitting around and he wanted to know if I could fill some holes. And fill I did, but I'm bummed I couldn't wipe out the whole need list I tried my damnedest. I also knew from emailing back and forth we mailed on the same day and it looks like we got our packages on the same day as well. Here's a sampling of what he sent.
He sent some nice set filler for me. This isn't the whole trade just a nice sample. I guess the best part about putting up my active needs list is that in a trade if you have a couple cards I need here or there it all works out and Tony gave me a little from column A and a little from column B and it all adds up. Thanks Tony.
And last but certainly not lease I got my swag from Colbey's poor mans group break over at Cardboard Collections. I love these suckers. I try to get the Brewers whenever I can. For 6 bucks shipping included its hard to pass up. Here are some of the highlights
Alright off to work off my beer calories for tomorrow.
