Trade: Reader Brandon

Back in the spring Brandon approached me with some Pirates trade bait.  He was unable to find anything on my trade bait page, but I told him I come into a lot of cards and to be patient.  A few weeks back I came into some good Reds cards and we were able to work out a deal.  Check out what came my way...
Pedro is having a tough year, but it was nice to add his jersey from GQ.  I opened a bunch of this stuff and wasn't able to pull this card so Brandon was nice enough to send it my way.
 Always great to add an auto of the Cobra.
I think this is my favorite card of the bunch.  Jose Guillen was dubbed the next big thing by the Pirates, but he never turned into the superstar as people predicted.  He did have a nice career, but being called up too early and immaturity may have set him back.  

Thanks again for the trade Brandon.  Hope we can do it again.

    1. I remember trying so hard to pull a co-signers back in the day, but it never happened. The group A versions still hold their value as they paired up some great players.

  2. That's a great Parker, and I also fondly remember Co-Signers! Nice deal.

    1. Thanks Dennis! Love adding Parker autos.

    1. I've added a lot of Parker autos over the years. Most of his autos can be had for less than 10 bucks......Plus I've been able to trade for quite a few since I started the blog.
