Trades with Derek of Tomahawk Chopping

Derek from the new Tomahawk Chopping blog, contacted me through email a little while back about some Orioles cards he had for trade and some cards I needed for my Topps Update set. He has just started his new blog, Tomahawk Chopping. While this was a smaller trade, I still enjoyed trading with him. Here's a few of the cards he sent me:
I really like the Ripken card. It has a very clean, regal look to it. I've always enjoyed Flair cards. The Lineage card is a card I already had but I have other plans for this particular one! While I am not actively seeking out the black background parallels that you can get at Wal-Mart (?), this card will fit nicely into my collection.

About a week after our first trade was complete, Derek contacted me again and said he had some more O's cards I needed. This is the second part of the trade that he sent me. He found these over Thanksgiving break at his parents house:
I don't have a lot of Will Clark cards of him in an Orioles uniform mostly because I was on "collecting" hiatus during the time he played for the O's. I like the Alan Mills Topps Gold card because its just a different shot that you don't see that often. The Adam Jones Turkey Red is the next to last Orioles insert card I need from 2010 Topps series 1, 2 and, Update. I only need the last Eddie Murray CYMTO from Updates to finish it off.

Go and check out Derek's new blog since he is just getting started and show him some blog-o-sphere love.

Thanks Derek for the great cards! I look forward to dealing with you more in the future!
