Spring Training is well underway and Opening Day is right around the corner. What a great time of year!
Something else that's great is making trades with fellow bloggers and ATBATT's readers. Today I'm covering a trade with one of the top bloggers in the game today, Good 'ol Nick, from the venerable Dime Boxes blog.
This time Nick included a note expressing regret that he was low on Dodgers and how he hoped the inclusion of some other HOFers would make up for that. Are you kidding, Nick? Your trade packages are ALWAYS chock full of fantastic cardboard, and this time was no exception.
As usual, Nick sent so many cool cards I had a difficult time just to separate out nine cards to fit on my scanner for this post. That said, let's check the top nine I chose:
One can never go wrong sending Dodger vintage to me. 3-Dog was one of my earliest favorite Dodgers. I was just a kid, but I quickly latched onto Davis because he was a southpaw just like me!
Now for one of today's Boys in Blue...
Nick also sent over some cool cardboard from other teams...
Another great card of a great pitcher. Although pictured here with his first team, the Indians, I'll always remember him as an Oakland A. Hey Ecks, can you hear it? "High fly ball into right field....SHE IS GOOOOOOOOONE !!!!!"
Finally, this little foldout whose origins I don't know, but I am now proud to own. I've mentioned before that I may not be a Yankees fan, but I can appreciate those Yankee greats from yesteryear. Yogi Berra is certainly one of those Yankee players whom I admire and collect.
And Nick, my THANKS for a great trade. I'm already gathering a fistful of cards to send out to you for our next trade.
Thanks for reading, everyone.
