Trade: Off Hiatus Baseball Cards (200th post)

It is my 200th post!  What better way to commemorate it than having a trade post. Trading is the reason I started Bob Walk the Plank.

Tony from Off Hiatus Baseball Cards sent me a package earlier this week, but decided that wasn't enough. Today I received one of the most eclectic group of cards I've received in a while.  No matter what your taste is in cards this package had it.
Let's start off with my favorite cards Tony delivered.  What a great mix of Kellogs 3D Super Stars.  Lots of big names in the group but my favorite has to be the Candelaria.  He is a personal favorite of mine from the late 70's teams.
 Next up is mini extravaganza.  From Kent Tekulve to Jameson Taillon and everything in between.
Some 78's and 79's!  The top row are former managers as well.  Ken Macha has been helping out with the Pirates post game show this year.

More vintage!  I'm digging the Gene Alley card.  I'm also wondering if Dock Ellis was on LSD for the photo.
Skinny Bonds!  I use to get so excited as a kid when I pulled a Bonds out of a pack of cards.  Always nice to see him show up in trade packages.
A beautiful gold refractor out of this years Archives /199.  Marte has really been swinging a hot bat since returning to the lineup.  Hopefully with him, Mccutchen and Walker all healthy the Pirates can string together some wins.
To finish things off is a 2008 A&G framed relic of Jason Bay.  As most of you know Bay was my favoirte Pirate in the mid 2000's so I'm always happy to make any card of his a good home.  

What a great package of cards to look through.  Thanks again Tony!  You should be receiving a return package in the mail and I just ordered a card that has your name all over it.  It will be heading your way soon.  I'm sure most of you already follow Off Hiatus, but just in case get on over there and check it out. Tony is a very generous trader who will be more than willing to take your Brewers off your hands.

  2. Congrats on the milestone. And it's definitely fitting that it's about Tony (kinda), since both of you started around the same time and collect NL Central teams...

    1. I agree. Plus I've traded with Tony about 150 times I think.

  3. I'm glad you got and liked the cards, Matt. And, I definitely appreciate that my package was the basis for post 200. Maybe one from you will be *my* post 200.

  4. Kelloggs 3D Super Stars - I may have to obtain ALL of these cards. I love nostalgia and these hit the spot! Great post! 194 til I catch up to you. (Providing you don't post 201...)

    1. Yeah I was excited to see Tony added these to the trade package. I have fond memories searching cereal boxes for cards growing up.
