Trades And Other Things

Well, the day has come: I am on summer vacation. On one hand, it'll be nice to not have to get up at 5 am to go drive a 46 000 KG vehicle, but on the other hand, I will miss seeing the kids.. And the money lol..

But that's not what this is about today.. No today I want to show off the cards I received from CrazieJoe who is a fellow Canadian and blogger. We've made a few trades now and recently I went through his want list on Trading Card Database to see what I had that he wanted and sent off a package for "future considerations"

Well, those came in yesterday (I was too tired to even think about them yesterday so here I am today)

So two more knocked off the 1987 list! An Expos Scott Sanderson is nice. The rest are O Pee Chee cards that I forgot I had listed on my want lists. Of course, seeing that Fergie Jenkins puts me in a difficult spot: Do I put it in the set, or do I put it in my Canadians binder? I don't know.. 

The other thing I've been thinking about is taking part in the whole wallet card thing.. 

The problem is though.. I don't know what I want to carry in my wallet. I've been thinking about this one:

Partially because I like the photo. It's also a card from the year I was born: 1978. The third reason I've been thinking about this one: I have 6 extras. Plus the one I'm thinking about using... Plus the one in my collection. 

However, my over-thinking kicks in and tells me I shouldn't use this one because 1978 card. 

The other one I've been thinking about is this one:

The reasons:

I really got interested in baseball in 1992. 
The Montreal Expos don't exist anymore 
Scott Ruskin was probably the more forgettable player.

So of the two, what would you choose? I know neither one is a superstar player. 


  1. Glad at least a couple of the 87s were new (and forgot to mention - I sent them 2 PWEs, so not sure if you got both just one. Also, I'd go with Scott between the two.

    1. I got one so far.. The second may be held hostage by Canada Post
