Trade With State of The Hobby...I'm Your Average Card Collector: Matt Kemp's Jumbo Lumber.

I completed my second trade with Jon from State of The Hobby...I'm Your Average Card Collector. Jon posted an absolutely amazing card, and I pounced. A few e-mails and Brandon Lafells later, and it was mine. You can check out everything I sent Jon's way here. Now, behold, in all of its glory, a massive chunk of The Bison's bat:


Sick! Numbered 08/20 and hailing from 2012 Topps Museum Collection, this Jumbo Lumber is by far one of the coolest hits of Matty I own. It's a fitting card to add to my Bison Collection, considering how Matt's been swinging the lumber the last couple of seasons. I absolutely love everything about this card, from the massive slice of bat to the general design of Museum Collection to Matt's huge smile. It has already been given the one-touch treatment. The Kemp would have been plenty, but there was one more card I managed to acquire from Jon.


Getz! Bobby! Together! I really love this dual auto of my two favorite Ducks, and I'm happy to pick up a second copy, as my Getzlaf PC already contains one. As such, this sweet piece of cardboard will head straight for my Bobby Ryan PC.


Jon even threw in a few extras, Evan Longoria style.

Thanks for another fantastic trade Jon! I look forward to many more, and please let me know if those high-end Russell Martins you've mentioned in the past ever become available!

That Kemp card is sick, sexy, and several other words that shouldn't apply to baseball cards but do.
