Trade With prophet got it...: Cole Hamels, Ethier, Mystery Vintage

My last trade post of 2010. Though I still have a bunch in the works and a couple that are basically complete; but alas, I ran out of days in 2010 to post them. So I'll just pretend they all occurred next year. Anyhoo....

I completed an exceptionally, exceptionally excellent trade with Jimmy from prophet got it.... In exchange for four Marlins hits (three game used, one auto), some random Marlins cards, and an Alexander Ovechkin mini, Jimmy sent me a slew of awesome cards. And when I say slew, I mean a huge amount of awesomely awesome awesomeness.


I seriously LOVE this card.

On a side note, if anyone has any Game Used Cole Hamels cards (or Autos for that matter), hit me up! I'll definitely make it worth your while and hit up multiple PCs you have.

The next sweet piece of the pie:

The final hit, with more pinstripe-y goodness, is a card Jimmy sent me because he posted it, I commented and said I liked the design of the card, and he said "It's yours". Sweet!


A bunch of other sick, sick stuff:


XFractor-y Goodness

Pretty pretty shiny.

There was a heck of a lot more in the box of cards Jimmy sent me, as well as one other card Jimmy offered up, which he got from the Topps' Million Card Giveaway. So whenever Topps sends Jimmy the card and it makes its way to me, I shall post it then. Needless to say, it's an awesome card. A couple of hints as to what it is: it's a Dodger, and it's vintage. Pure, unadulterated vintage-y vintage goodness.

This trade was pure joy for me to be a part of, and I can't thank you enough Jimmy! Anything I come across that I think might pique your interest, I'll definitely set aside (and of course, any Marlins card I happen upon). Enjoy your hiatus, stay safe, and I'll catch you for more trades and jokes in the new year.


  1. Holy cow, that's a ton of stuff!

    But what the hell is that Hamels card doing in there? :P

    That Ramirez brings back memories. I remember those 1994 Collector's Choice Fun packs (or whatever they were called). Crazy cards. They even had some where you could punch out the player like a tiny cardboard cutout.

    Nice pickups.

  2. Haha thanks.

    And I won't lie; I have a Hamels jersey that I'm proud to own. :o
