Trade with Matt of Cardboard Anathema

I recently contacted Matt of the relatively new Cardboard Anathema blog.  Matt has just recently jump back into the hobby and started up his own blog.  I found Matt's blog through My Cardboard Mistress' trade post.  I've found so many great blogs by looking at other's trade posts.  Trading is a great way to get your blog recognized in our community.

Here are just a few of the awesome cards that Matt sent to me:

Matt is building the 1971 Topps set.  I commend his efforts because it is not an easy set to complete.  I assume that this is one of the doubles he has acquired during his trek towards completion.  I really like the 1971 set.  "Game Changer" is a word that comes to mind when I think of '71 Topps.

Here's a quirky card from Collector's Choice 1998.  While it looks like a cypher card from Allen and Ginter from the scrambled letters on the left, it actually just says "StarQuest".  This is only a "Single" so I wonder if the double, triple, or homerun versions of this card have different pictures.  I'll make an educated guess and say no because of the Starquest inserts in 08 and 09 Upper Deck.

The Final Card I'm going to show off is this Brooks Robinson from 2002 Upper Deck World Series Heroes.  I'm not fond of the Yankee pinstripes in the background of the card front but the rest of the card is nice.  It really seems classy with the dual American flags, logo, and year foil stamping and the stars surrounding the frame of the actual photo.

Thanks Matt for the fantastic trade package you sent and I look forward to seeing more great posts from your blog.
