My New Twitter Trade Partner is All Hero

Aloha, everybody, 

Time to get caught up on trade posts. The good news is I made a new trade connection through Twitter. The better news is Basecard Hero sent over a fantastic fistful of cards from a set I don't usually buy, so all of these cards are new to my collection. 

That's a very shiny, good thing. We'll lead off with some inserts...

The cards are well-designed, with great photos and an unimposing abstract background, topped off with a slick, shiny surface. 

The surfaces are so slick, the cards wanted to slide all over my scanner from the slightest touch. 

On to the base cards. They switched up the background to a half and half mix of abstract design and the team logo. Again, it works.

How about some Hanley? 

Some very attractive cards, and great new RCs of Corey Seager, Maeda and Urias. Thanks, Basecard Hero!

I've got your cards in a pile. I'll be hitting the post office soon. 



  1. Woof, these cards are nice as heck. Anytime you get cards from products like Bowman's Best is a good time.

    1. Absolutely right. I'm secretly hoping Basecard Hero becomes a continuing source of BB for me :)

  2. The giant logo background is pretty nice, surprisingly. The design definitely is tailored to the atomic refractors, too.

  3. I can honestly say this is the first BB I've actually liked! In all my collecting in the 90s, Best did nothing for me. These are gorgeous cards.
