Trade: Too Many Verlanders

Dennis from Too Many Verlanders recently completed a great contest in which you claimed cards he was trying to get rid of as part of his spring cleaning.  Each time you claimed a lot you were entered to win great prizes.  How cool is that! You get awesome cards as the contest entry and could win more awesome cards. Well I didn't win any prizes, but along with the lots I claimed Dennis sent me some great Pirates and WVU cards.  I think we have gotten to the point where we just send each other our respective teams without even asking now.  Blind trades are the best.  Check out some of the great cards.....

The 2007 Topps Co-Signers set was one of my all time favorite sets for Pirate autos.  It was one of the first mid 2000 sets to feature a wide variety of Pirate autos.  I featured a Joe Mauer/Freddy Sanchez on the blog a few months back.

 I love this Mazeroski manu card!
Just like Dennis is a huge fan of Michigan, I love my alma mater WVU.  This is a nice auto of Keith Tandy who plays for Tampa Bay.   Extra bonus points for him being in his WVU uniform.
WVU alum Jedd Gyorko.  I'm hoping that Jedd balances back after his DL stint.  He had been struggling big time this year along with the rest of the Padre offense.
 I got bipped Jarrett Brown style!

Nice selection of Aramis Ramirez cards.  One of the worst trades in franchise history was letting Aram go for Bobby Hill of the Cubs.  Ugh
 Young Moises Alou!
This is a sweet Mclouth ticket stub/two color jersey.

Thanks for the great cards Dennis.  I'm sure I will pull more Tigers for you shortly.  Please make sure to try and trade with Dennis as you won't be disappointed.  He is one of the more generous bloggers out there.  

Thanks for checking out the blog!


  1. I've learned quickly that Dennis is a great guy to trade with. Cool cards!

  2. Glad you liked the package! And I just got back from a Tigers win thanks to a walk-off grand slam by former Pirate Rajai Davis!
