Trade With The Daily Dimwit: My First Stamkos Auto, Heyward/Wright GQ, and The Bison and Kid K.

I completed my seventh trade with the great Sam from The Daily Dimwit. You can check out the first here, second here, third here, fourth here, fifth here, and sixth here. Sam and I worked on this deal for months as he kept pulling cards that interested me and I kept searching high and low for things that interested him. You can see what I sent his way here.

The crux of the deal for me is my first Steven Stamkos signature! I've wanted an auto of the sniper for some time and I'm the type of collector that doesn't care about the aesthetics of the auto all that much. Owning a Stamkos John Hancock is what was important to me, and I can finally say that I do thanks to Samuel. On-card to boot. Sick.

I picked up a pair of 2012 Gypsy Queen relics to add to non-Dodger PCs. First up, a nice new J-Hey to add to that modest but progressing collection. I'm a big fan of the Braves' stud and was happy to acquire my first relic of his. I also scored a new David Wright and love that both new additions feature colorful swatches.

Sam sent a nice chunk of Matt Kemp's 2012 Triple Threads rainbow, and I was very much in need of all three: Base, Amber /125 (043/125), and Gold /99 (23/99). LOVE the awesome photo.

Finally, another new Bison as well as a matching Clayton Kershaw. Anytime I can add five new cards of my main guys and pick up some awesome hits, it's definitely been a fantastic trade.

Thanks for yet another excellent trade Sam! I look forward to completing the already begun number eight!


  1. Don't know how I missed out on this one. I had been wanting to get that Stamkos from him for a while, but never had anything to offer. Congrats on getting such a great card.

  2. Thanks!

    And yeah, I knew I had to have it the moment I saw it. Love Stamkos, he's a beast!
