A trade the color of argyle.

Been slow here at Collector's Crack world headquarters. With work, working on the house, and working on the family, and the general malaise I feel for the card industry at the moment I haven't been that motivated or inspired to post.  Sorry about that.  I'm not sure if that will change much, at least for another month or so.

But I did post about ripping a couple packs of 2014 Topps Chrome baseball a while back.  I ended up pulling an auto from the pack and Greg over at Plaschke, Thy Sweater is Argyle commented that he'd like to trade for it.  By Greg's count this is our 7th trade. You can read his end of the deal here.

First off the pad the trade Greg sent a smattering of random Brewers.

 He also threw in a couple 2013 Ginter's I needed for my set, always appreciated.
 There was also this sweet Randell Cobb  Topps Supreme Blue parallel.
 A 1963 Jimmy Ringo for my Packers team set.
 But the meat of the trade was this sweet 2004 Rickie Weeks UD USA Baseball Black Signature card.
Rickie most likely will not be on the Brewers team next year, but he's been a pretty integral to the team since his rookie year in 2003.

Reguardless of what happens to Rickie next year it's great to add this auto to the collection.

Thanks Greg.
