Trade at the Plate

I’ve been a fan of the blog Play at the Plate for a while now.  Brian, who runs the blog, has an entertaining blog, and is a fellow Rangers fan to boot!  We never had traded before, but I recently was fortunate enough to get (2) Michael Young autos from a fun UD Ovation case break from the Daily Dimwit.    That was the seed of our trade.  I sent the Young auto and another low numbered Michael Young card to Brian.  He was going to send back several Gypsy Queen inserts that I needed.  I received his shipment today, and found the Gypsy Queens, plus a whole lot more:
I like the Gypsy Queen set okay, but I LOVE the inserts.  This nice group really put a dent in my Gypsy Queen checklist.

The Sticky Fingers set is my favorite from GQ, so I was happy to get this card.  Brian also sent some cards of my favorite players.  The Hunter Chrome card is #d to 599.
Finally, he included some very nice Barry Bonds cards.  The 02 Diamond King is really sweet, with the paper border.

Thank you so much Brian, I owe you!

Glad you liked it. I'm just glad to find someone who collects Bonds!

Got your email. I must have mixed up your player list with someone else's. I am so very sorry I Bonds Bipped you! I would never have done that without the mixup. Now, who was that that collected Bonds????
