Trade with Pat of Hot Corner Cards

I've recently been finding a couple new blogs to read and Hot Corner Cards is one of them. Pat and I swapped some cards recently.  I sent him a gaggle of 84 Topps and he sent me a ton of Orioles cards.
This What's in a Name goes in the Brooks binder.  It's hard to believe that with as many Ginter fanatics as there are on the blogs, that I'm still missing a few of these for my set.
My scanner gave this card a gangsta lean for some reason.  Relax though, the card is in good shape.  With all of the great arms in Orioles camp right now(about 10 candidates for the starting rotation), Liz would probably be relegated to the minor league camp as aweful as he was when he pitched for the O's.
From a crummy pitcher to a Golden Great pitcher, we have a nice insert of Jim Palmer from last years Update series.  Topps can really screw up some insert set numbers and create some headaches for set completionists.  Golden Greats is a good example of that.  Also check out the Dynamic Duos too.  Your head might start spinning around, Exorcist style.
I always appreciate Brady Anderson cards.  Topps Stars was an underrated set in the late 90's I think.  Some interesting designs I think.
The crown Jewel of the trade is probably this 1954 Bob Turley.  Sure it's a little worn but it looks perfect in my One Card of Every Oriole binder.

Thanks Pat for the nice stack of cards, I hope to trade again one day.

  1. Thanks for sharing this. I love reading O's-related blogs. Also, I recently posted something on my own little blog about last week's stellar catch by McLouth. In any case, keep up the good work--and go O's!
