Trade: Off Hiatus Baseball Cards

The Pirates and Brewers don't get along very well right now, but at least in the blog world there is peace and harmony.  A while back Tony from Off Hiatus Baseball Cards and I exchanged a couple of emails and we hashed out a trade for some cards.  Here is a sample of what Tony shipped my way.

I was a huge Joel Hanrahan fan, but the Pirates couldn't have picked a better time to trade him to the Red Sox last year.  The Pirates received Mark Melancon and Stolmy Pimental and Hanrahan ended up blowing out his arm after a handful of appearances.  Thankfully it looks like Hanrahan is close to making a recovery and has been having throwing sessions for scouts.
When I was kid it was a big deal to get those big head cards out of Score.  Always cool to receive a Bob Walk too!

 Some vintage Buccos including a nice Stargell!
 Snider is looking a little rough after the scuffle with the Brewers.  This is a cool Topps Black card /62.

Mccutchen looks like he is posed for Senior pictures.  Nice to add some Turkey Red.

Thanks again Tony for the trade!  Look forward to keep sending you my Brewers.

Thanks for checking out the blog.


  1. Thanks for the trade -- that Travis Snider card is as black as his eye! :-) In all seriousness, the less said about that exchange of idiocy between our two teams, the better.

  2. Maldonado is a punk. He'll get his someday.

    1. I'm not sure what he was thinking. It was going to be just your run of the mill baseball fight until he threw a haymaker. He may have gotten lucky only to get 5 games.
