Trade: Brad's Blog (This involved a lot of stuff)

Early last week I made a post in which I stated that I'm always looking to trade and have a bunch of trade bait that hasn't made its way on the blog.  Brad from Brad's Blog left a comment listing all the Bucco trade bait he had.  It didn't take long for us to make a deal and a few days later I had a big bubble mailer waiting in the mailbox.  Brad had warned me he threw in a few surprises and boy was he right.  Check out some of the cards he sent.   This wasn't even all the cards....

This Justin Wilson RC from Chrome is awesome.  Brad completely surprised me with this one.  It is kind of hard to see but it is numbered 2 of 5.  Wilson only has a couple of high end cards so this was right up my alley!

 Jeff Locke RC /100

Matt Hague RC /199

 Sweet manufactured patch of Clemente from 2013 Topps

Hague sepia auto /75.  This is a sweet looking card!  The picture doesn't do it justice

 Bill Madlock jersey
 Dave Parker bat

Paul Maholm Bowman's Best RC auto.  Maholm was one of the nicest guys I met when my friends and I use to hit spring training in Bradenton.

 Vintage Buccos!

Skinny Bonds!  Plus a sweet Brian Giles.  One of the more underrated Pirates.
Thanks so much for a great deal Brad.  You really overwhelmed me by adding that sweet Justin Wilson and a redemption for a Tony Cingrani auto (not pictured).  If you have some Phillies around shoot Brad a message.  He is a great trader!  Look forward to our next deal.
