Trade With The Card Hobbyist: My First Non-Dodgers Russ Martin Relic

It was bound to happen at some point. I just picked up my first Yankees hit of Russ, in a trade with Patrick of The Card Hobbyist. I sent Pat a Tommy Hanson Gypsy Queen relic with a swell red swatch - plus some random cards of his favorite teams - and in exchange received this Martin jersey relic, as well as a Ginter back mini of Jonathan Broxton. Martin has both a bat and jersey relic in this year's Ginter offering, and I'm not sure which is short-printed. I think it's the bat relic. Either way, if anyone pulled his bat relic, hit me up.

Thanks for the trade Pat, hopefully we can swing another deal in the future!

Oh, and I'm really struggling to get preview images to show when you scroll through your daily reading of blogs you follow on the Blogger homepage. Any suggestions? It's really hit and miss, which is disappointing. I strongly dislike the new Blogger. The old one worked perfectly fine.


  1. I'd assume the Martin jersey swatch is a Dodgers uni though, right?

  2. I got your cards in the mail today. Thanks for the trade!

  3. Glad they arrived. Thanks Patrick!
