Trade: The Prowling Cat

Another new trade partner! I reached out to Zenus from the blog The Prowling Cat to let him know I was holding a few extra Mariner cards. The trade took a while to come together as I was trying to get Kyle Seager auto from a friend of mine which took some time. Thankfully it worked out and I was able to get the trade rolling.

Yesterday I received the return package.  Check it out.

The Pirates had a rough time replacing Jack Wilson at short after he was traded to the Mariners. A standout defensively Jack had great range and a good throwing arm.
Jason Grilli was a former first round pick that could never get much traction at the Major League level. A journeyman most of his career until he found a home with the Pirates. He found new velocity and was a key component when the Pirates finally ended their 20 + year losing streak. He was traded to the Angels this past season. I'm always a sucker for the Update All Star cards.

I love the Renaldo Turnbull rookie card. WVU churned out quite a few NFL players on the defensive side of the ball during the 90's.

Thanks for all the great cards Zenus. I actually just came into a few more nice Mariner cards that I can send your way.

Thanks for reading.


  1. To me Jack Wilson will forever be the face of the Pirates and Mariners (simultaneously). Great cards man :).

    BTW, I got your package in the mail today. Thanks a bunch :).

    1. Jack was a fun guy to watch. Those terrible mid 2000's Pirate teams had a lot of individual talent for everyday players, but the pitching was horrible.

      Glad the package arrived!

  2. Glad you like the cards. Thought that Grilli looked pretty cool myself
