I've received quite a few smaller trade packages in the mail lately. While the volume of cards received might have been small, each and everyone of them filled a hole in my collection.
First up a Nick Markakis from 2007:
I think I will be forever chasing the UD Documentary set from 2008. 162 cards for the team set will keep me busy for quite some time. BTW, the Machado above and the Markakis are from a reader of the blog named Kyle.
Next is a Gold parallel from this years Bowman that was delivered from Brian of Play at the Plate. I still don't have the base version of this card though. I'm sure with "Crush" hitting so many dingers this year, we'll be seeing more and more of his cards in products.
This Machado comes to me from Bryan of Golden Rainbow cards. I've seen several cards that are in this insert set and I like them a lot. I love action shots on baseball cards more than posed shots so the Chase it Down insert set is right up my alley. I won't be collecting the set, just picking up the Adam Jones and calling it complete.
Thanks to all the great traders that sent these awesome cards!
