A trade with A Cracked Bat

I love finding new blogs. I also love finding new blogs because of trades. I also like that there's a new female voice in the collecting blogosphere.  Recently Julie who writes the blog A Cracked Bat, emailed me that she had a card I had had on my Yount want list for quite a while and it was mine for my address.  How could I pass that up.

What we have here is one of Mr. Yount's cards out of the 2012 Panini Cooperstown Collection set.  This was a retail blaster exclusive and was one of the last inserts, other than Robin's auto from the set, that I needed. This is his Hall of Fame Classes Team card.  This is one of at two cards in the set that doesn't actually show an image of the Robin.  I suppose that makes them easy to produce since you don't have to send an image to the airbrusher.  And believe it or not, but these cards are kind of hard to find, hence the reason it's been sitting on my want list for over 2 years.

Thanks Julie, I'll have to dig some Tigers out for you.


  1. Damn. I would have loved that card!

  2. I am so far behind with reading your great blog! Thanks for the kind words and so glad you love the card!
