I completed my second trade with Colbey from Cardboard Collections. Colbey contacted me about a few cards from my Want List he could help out with, and our second deal was underway after a few e-mails. I received two relics and a bit of Ginter help when all was said and done.
First up, a sweet Darren Sproles relic, complete with a powder blue piece of jersey. Every Chargers' relic should feature powder blue. There should be some sort of federal law stating such a mandate. The card surface is in some sort of weird and totally awesome textured state, which I really dig. It also happens to be numbered 258/299 and prominently features a sick action shot of the former Chargers' tailback. Part of me thinks it has patch-like qualities. Who knows.
Next up, a new addition to my small Alex Gordon PC. It's been a while since I've added a card to this particular tertiary collection, but I like Gordon a lot and am always happy to pick up a hit of his. And again, a sweet blue relic. Put simply, if blue is a color in your uniform scheme, it should be the color used in relics.
And finally, the aforementioned Ginter help. 2011 Ginter, that is, as Colbey sent along four Hometown Heroes I needed. I'm still working on '11 Ginter, fellow card bloggers.
Thanks for the trade Colbey! I'll have something headed your way as soon as I can!
