Trade Review: Tomahawk Chopping sends me some Yanks

Despite 1996 and 1999, Derek from Tomahawk Chopping agreed to send me a few Yankee cards in exchange for about 20 base cards he needed from 2011 Topps.

As you may have noticed from a few other recent trades, I'll usually send you what you need (within reason) for a few recent Yanks cards. Derek sent me a nice assortment of Yanks I didn't have, highlighted by two Topps Chrome cards - an '09 Sabathia and a '10 Jeter. Sweet! Maybe it's just this card, but the 2009 Chromes don't bend as much as 2010. Anyone else notice that?There was also an assortment of cards from 2010 Topps Update, including a Kevin Russo that I didn't have. I'll probably use this card for TTM. There were about 10 more cards, some Yanks, some not. It was cool of Derek to throw in some random cards, including a 2009 O-Pee-Chee Dexter Fowler and a 2009 A&G Chad Billingsly. I had no idea there was a 2009 O-Pee-Chee, so I learned something new yet again thanks to a trade.

Derek, hope you receive the Topps base cards soon. Thanks for the trade!


  1. 2010 Topps Chrome was the only set that I recall that bowed so badly. My '09 Chromes rank a -1,000 on the "Bendy Scale" in comparison to the '10s.

  2. 2010 Bowman Chromes as well. The difference between 2009 and 2010 is crazy.

  3. Thanks for a great trade.
    Glad you liked the extras, you can use them in trade bait with a few other guys. I actually think I accidentally had them in your pile, I wonder if someone else ended up with a random Yankee or too. Ooops!

  4. You might have! If you need them back, by all means, just let me know.
