I completed my third trade with fellow Mike Piazza fan Mike from Sports Syzygy. You can check out the first here and the second here. I sent Mike a pair of Red Sox minor leaguers (one auto, one serial-numbered parallel) that I pulled from minor league products last year. In return, I was able to snag another sweet All-Star Game relic out of 2011 Topps Update, and it features one of my favorite non-Dodgers, Jay Bruce.
Mike also let me know he had a serial-numbered Bruce he'd send along, and it happened to be this extremely aesthetically-appealing blue parallel of Bruce's 2011 Topps Chrome card.
Some sick photography right there, and it's #'d 68/99. I clearly struggled to scan each of the three Bruces, so this is now officially the Trade of Crooked Cards. I also received the 2008 Update Bruce you see, and yes, I have often found myself saying "BRUUUUUUUUUCE!" when nobody is around to hear me.
Thanks for the trade Mike! Your cards are on their way!
