Trade Review: My Sports and Sports Cards

A week ago, Jeff from My Sports and Sports Cards reached out about a possible trade. He explained that he is new to online trading, so we set up a small deal. He collects White Sox, Colts, and Michigan Wolverine cards. I sent him a stack of White Sox cards, and he sent me a stack of Yanks. Quick and easy!

Well, Jeff went above and beyond for our first trade. While I sent about 25-30 White Sox I had laying around, Jeff sent me a GREAT lot of Yanks totaling about 50 cards. Totally lopsided. The first two cards were especially awesome - a Robinson Cano Bowman Platinum /999 and a Javy Vazquez 2010 Topps Chome GOLD Refractor #'d to 50! Wow wow wow! Now, both of Javy's stints in NY didn't work out at all, but this card is truly awesome looking. And the Cano? I love getting a numbered refractor of the best second basemen in baseball (sorry, it's true).

Here are some pictures of the other cards. Love getting a Cito Culver Bowman Chrome, and a great assortment of Mantles (I had none of these!) and Bowman Platinums. I wonder how many Mantles I have? Probably close to 100 - all reprints of course. Still, I should figure it out one of these days just for fun. The Zach McAllister card is cool too. Unfortunately, he is no longer a Yankee, as he was used to acquire Austin Kearns for the summer last year.

Jeff, I'll gladly trade with you again! Thanks for a great selection of cards. Go check out Jeff's blog and trade with him1
