Blockbuster Additions

I mentioned yesterday that I've been having a lot of contact from non bloggers looking to trade and sell.  Yesterday I featured some cards that I blind traded with a reader named Pete.  Today I'm featuring a major purchase from reader Nolan.

Nolan is a Pirates fan like myself, but was narrowing his collection to focus on Neil Walker and vintage needs.  It took us a while to come to a deal as we got held up because I left town for my brothers wedding.  As soon as I got back we hit the ground running and came to terms.  Check out the great cards.  As a side not Nolan's collection is top notch.  He sent some pictures of his vintage collection and it would make you drool.

Nolan even threw in some freebies by giving me a handful of Bucco Vintage.  Also not pictured was an Al Oliver Topps Retired Auto. 

Thanks a ton Nolan for giving me the opportunity to add so many great cards.  I look forward to trading with you in the future.  You never know who might be checking out your blog on any given day.  

Thanks for reading!

  2. I pulled a Bob Walk card out of a repack the other day, and I was like, "Yeah! Bob Walk the Plank!" That has nothing to do with this post, but I needed to share it.

    It's nice to see Mario Mendoza represented a little bit here.

    1. Thanks! I believe this is the second copy I've added. He doesn't have much in the way of relic cards so I will add as many as I can in trade or if the price is right.

    1. I really like the bat barrel card too. It's crazy how thick that card is. The leather card is growing on me. Wasn't a fan of those for the longest time, but in hand they look a little bit better.

  5. Absolutely amazing pickups. I do wish they could have found a better signature for that Stargell cut than a Perez-Steele postcard.

    1. Thanks Mark! I'm glad Nolan gave me a chance to buy everything. I actually have another Stargell cut auto similar to that one. Upper Deck must have got a bunch of those. Visually not the nicest card, but a Pops auto nonetheless.
