Trade With Brad's Blog: Ginterpalooza -- Maury Wills Auto, Puig/Ryu RCs (+ A Sick Fedorov Ducks' Patch)

I completed my second trade with Brad from Brad's Blog. There were many layers to our latest deal but all were fantastically awesome. Brad busted some 2013 Ginter and had a lot available for trade, and thankfully I had enough hits of Philadelphia teams lying around to entice him.

First up, this awesome on-card auto of Maury Wills. It's just my second certified Wills John Hancock and third overall, as I met Maury a few years back. Next up, we move to hockey and my love of sick patches.

I sadly don't remember much of future Hall of Famer Sergei Fedorov as a Duck, but I'm quite pleased to add a patch of his (numbered 035/220) to my Ducks' PC. Finally, the meat of the deal: GINTER set needs!

Highlighted by RCs of Yasiel Puig and Hyun-Jin Ryu - both of which will go towards my set - Brad sent along a ton of '13 A&G. All told, he contributed: 73 base cards, 6 SPs, 2 Martial Mastery, 2 Heavy Hangs The Head, 11 Across The Years, 3 Palaces & Strongholds, 2 One Little Corner, 2 Inquiring Minds, 1 Codes, Ciphers, & Cryptographs, and 1 Ages of Civilizations Past to the 2013 Ginter Cause. The Ryu is easily one of the best cards in 2013, period. So much awesome.

Thanks for another outstanding trade Brad, I appreciate it!

No thanks to me. I think it came from a multi-box group break I did ages ago. If not, it sure looks a lot like it.

I'm sure someone has done this already but a "Kevin Bacon game" with cards would be interesting (this card was made by ABC Company, purchased by 123 Company, bought by collector A, sold to collector B, traded to collector C, etc, etc.)

dfg - That would be pretty sweet. I'm sure there are way more than six degrees on a lot of our deals.
