Trade With Cardboard Catastrophes: Oye Como Va, Carlos Santana? Plus A Card Draft Bribe and Treasure Room Booty.

I completed my first trade with Jeff from Cardboard Catastrophes. Jeff busted some Obak and pulled an auto I was dying to get my hands on. After a few e-mails back and forth, I was able to knock off a few cards from his needs lists, and I'm in the process of tracking down another card or two to complete the deal for the beauty below.

Numbered 2/5, it's the red (I think?) parallel from Obak, and pairs very nicely with the Jerry Sands /5 parallel (purple in that case) I have from Obak. The only difference is Carlos is from 2010, while Jerry is from the 2011 offering.

Oh, what could have been! Uncle Ned, I shall forever hate your baseball "knowledge" and propensity to get massively worked over in trades. Jeff also kindly threw in a few cards I needed as I near the end of 2011 Allen & Ginter (one Ascent Of Man, two Hometown Heroes, and two base needs). I appreciate the set help and the fact that these surprise cards signify that Jeff took the time to scan over my Want List, which is becoming more and more cluttered with every update.

Thanks for the great trade Jeff!

There are still spots available in the upcoming draft! Head on over and join! You'll enjoy yourself, I promise.

And head on over to the excellent Pirates Treasure Room for a chance to win some great prizes, with a phenomenal card available if the Pirates sweep the Braves. Go Bucs!


  1. Nice Santana auto! I just got one, but it's numbered to 50 - so yours is more boss.

    Did you see "Drive"? She was in it.

  2. Thanks! Haven't seen Drive, although I've heard it was really good.

    Apparently though, hot women don't have the persuasion power I thought they did....
