SuperTraders #2: Highly Subjective and Completely Arbitrary

By my unofficial count, there are eight #SuperTraders I haven’t traded with. While I’m bummed I haven’t up to this point, I look forward to swapping some cards with some new people. I’ve been a long time reader of Highly Subjective and Completely Arbitrary, but I don’t think Brian and I have traded thus far. I could be wrong though, as I have an awful memory. As a result of said memory, I am hoping to be extra diligent about tracking what I’ve received and sent out for #SuperTraders, even adding a few columns to the spreadsheet to try and be more organized.

Anyhow, Brian sent me a very cool PWE that had a lot of good stuff, including some of those excellent 1991 Archives honoring the 1953 set, as well as a few random Yanks, including a nice Mattingly oddball.
However, I must call particular attention to one card which really caught my eye: this 1994 Donruss Jimmy Key Mound Marvels. I have never seen such a card. The shiny circle is not really a hologram, as it doesn’t “pop out” when tilted. It’s more of a mirror, but when held to light, Jimmy’s headshot appears. The whole card has an acetate-type feel to it. It’s really cool! I had no idea these existed in ’94 Donruss. Very cutting edge! 
Brian, thanks for the PWE. Looking forward to dumping some Twins on you.


  1. Nice package from Brian.

    As the Yankees representative in the SuperTraders group you really need to bring it TLC. Our entire fan base is counting on you. #NoPressure

  3. I didn't realize that Jimmy Key card was anything special until I got it home from the card show. I had the same experience of finding out it wasn't really a hologram...
