Trade With The Daily Dimwit: Puig Galore, An Eventual Seager Orange Auto, and Ginter o' Plenty.

I completed my ninth trade with the great Sam from The Daily Dimwit. You can check out our first deal here, second here, third here, fourth here, fifth here, sixth here, seventh here, and eighth here. Sam has thankfully come out of blog retirement, and we recently finalized a trade that had been in the works for some time. You can see what headed Sam's way here.

I'll start off with some Yasiel Puig RC goodness! Sam sent along Puig's 2013 Ginter A&G Back Mini RC, base RC, and a Puig rookie from 2013 Topps Pro Debut. All are much appreciated and are swell additions to my modest #ManBearPuig PC.

Next up, a redemption that has been entered for a Corey Seager Orange Parallel Auto from 2013 Bowman Inception (on-card!). I can't wait to have this beaut in-hand and part of my #ManBearSeag PC!

More Corey Seager! Seriously, how can you not absolutely adore a card with a raptor on it? I can't get enough and plan on taking in some Rancho Cucamonga Quakes' games while he's still a member of the team. In-person graphing will be the desired result of those games.

A nice mix of stuff is up next. We've got a Ryu Rookie (one of 2013's best cards); a new Matt Kemp; a new Clayton Kershaw (it's the regular back mini); a Joc Pederson Minor League RC; and an AJ Ellis for my PC of the charismatic catcher. I'm working on some sort of rainbow for AJ's 2013 Ginter card, another great offering amongst 2013's slew of cardboard.

Finally, Sam knocked out a ginormous chunk of my 2013 Allen & Ginter needs in the form of:

93 Base - Complete!
17 SPs
45 Across The Years
The last 4 Martial Mastery cards I needed (!)
6 Civilizations of Ages Past
7 One Little Corner
7 Palaces & Strongholds
4 Codes, Ciphers & Cryptographs
13 Heavy Hangs The Head
5 Famous Finds
7 Inquiring Minds
3 The First Americans
3 Peacemakers

Sam, as always, thanks for another phenomenal trade!
