A Dynamic Duo of Trades

Aloha, everybody, 

Back when the 2018 Topps flagship first hit the shelves (doesn't that feel like a million years ago?), I ripped a blaster's worth here and that generated a quick slew of small trades. Here are a couple. 

This first one actually sprung from The Lost Collector posting some of his pulls on Twitter. I spotted a couple of Dodgers and pounced! 

Gimme, gimme, gimme, them cards of the Southpaw Assassin!



How about a Topps Rookie Cup gold? Yeh, I want it. 




 Here's another nice slice of Cody cardboard...

AJ was cool enough to toss in a couple of extra Boys in Blue:


 I remember looking forward to Garcia when he made it to LA, but he turned out to be a bust. At least the guy looks good on a card. 

Finally, a little bitta Brooklyn (in reprint form)...



Thanks, AJ! Good stuff. 

Next up, a couple of non and ex-Dodgers from reader Jimmy L.  
Noone better to start us off than a legend...



Here's an ex-Dodger - at least he was one in the coach's box. Don't forget to read that caption: 4 for 4 with 3 HRs, Retires 5 days later. 




One of my favorite (recent) past Dodgers...



We'll close out with the man that I love to hate; love to collect. 



Great cards for a great first trade. Thanks, Jimmy! Looking forward to many more. 

Aloha!

  3. The rarities cards are sharp! Every time I see Karim Garcia I have to ask (as Pedro Martinez once did) "Who are you?"
