Barter: Care of Night Owl

First of all, if you traded with me recently, and I didn't share it on here, I'm sorry. Just as of last month, I didn't have internet or a scanner that worked more than 10% of the time, so cards were not posted and cards were assimilated into my collection and they were all very much appreciated. Now that I have these luxuries, posting a trade post doesn't take me 3 1/2 hours to put together.

This latest one is from Night Owl. He contacted me about some Dodgers he spotted from my '93 Action Packed box break, and he had several great Darryl Strawberry cards that I didn't own yet. He also took a stab at my needs list and knocked a few off of there!

Some examples of my base card needs he sent:

2009 Allen & Ginter #213 Stephanie Brown Trafton. She brought home US gold from Beijing for discus.

2009 Topps #259 National League Strikeout Leaders Tim Lincecum (265k), Johan Santana (206k) and Dan Haren (206k). Edinson Volquez also had 206k but I guess he lost the popularity contest.

2008 Stadium Club #98 Roberto Clemente. These Stadium Club cards #91-100 are among my all time favorite cards. Incredibly high quality vintage images with a glossy finish. Nothing better.

Here are all the Darryl Strawberrys I traded for. 1993 Upper Deck #477 Team Stars w/ Eric Davis.

1994 Pinnacle #309 Hometown Heroes.

1992 Studio #50.

1992 Leaf #29.

1991 Fleer Update #U-96.

1991 Donruss #696. This might have been my most heavily collected set as a kid so eventually I'll have to put this one together.

1991 Classic Blue #T68.

Once again, thanks for the great trade Night Owl!

Thanks. My wife thinks the pack bottle is weird, but it makes sense to me..

Pack Addict,
I would never intentionally disagree with anyone's wife (they are ALWAYS right!) but I LOVE the new site design and I think the pill bottle is GREAT! Good Job!
