Cardboard Catastrophes Keeps Making My Day

I can't seem to catch up to Jeff at Cardboard Catastrophes.  It seems like he always has something up his sleeve that I want and he sends it before I can even put together my side of the trade.  He was nice enough to do some finagling on the Diamond Topps giveaway site and came up with the only other Texas Ranger di cut card I needed (I'm passing on Vlad Guerrero and don't want to spend what I'd have to for the Nolan Ryan) for a close-enough-complete Rangers set.   His cards arrived in the mail yesterday.  I haven't even put his in the mail yet.  This same scenario plays out on all of our trades, which makes me wonder how he tolerates me. 
Here is the Beltre.  I love these cards, and I've become a huge fan of Beltre this year.  I'm very excited to get this.
He also sent a few extra cards.  The Ryan Fleer Greats card is a handsome card that looks like it belongs in a leather bound album in a luxurious home office that smells of pipe tobacco. 

Thanks for being a great trading partner Jeff, and I'll get some good stuff out to you soon!

It is easy to get things out fast when you work from home and don't have to deal with a commute at both ends of the day.

I debated on the Ryan, since he is shown as an Astro. But, I figured being the Rangers president probably outweighs his longer playing tenure in Houston. Just think of the uniform as a Halloween costume.

Nice ones! That was a great trade.
