Trade with Judson of My Cardboard Habit

I was able to complete a trade with Judson of My Cardboard Habit.  I have been extremely busy lately but I was able to find a few moments to fit in some time with my collection.  You can read about Judson's haul from the trade right HERE.

Before we get into the cards Judson sent, please take a moment out to check out his group break.  He's busting a box of Allen and Ginter when it's released.  Check out the details HERE.

Alrighty, let's get right into the trade.
First, the crown jewel of the trade, an Adam Jones mini relic from 2013 Gypsy Queen.  Adam provided a much needed boost to the O's yesterday when he hit a 2 run homer off Mariano Rivera to salvage 1 game from the 3 game series in New York.  I didn't see it live but I'm sure I would have been jumping around the mancove!
I've actually acquired this card 3 times now but this is that last time I think I will need to chase it down.  I have one for my Ripken PC, one for my A&G & What's in a Name Complete set, and now I have one for my Master Team Set!
Jim Johnson was Golden last year when it came down to finishing off ballgames.  This year he's blown like 7 or 8 saves.  We'd be in first place if he was as dominant as he was last year.
Finally we have a regular old base version of Darren O'Day.  I hope that this card can find some ink in the next few months as I hopefully get to take a day and go to Camden Yards and see a game!

Thanks for the trade Judson.


  1. Glad you enjoyed the card! Now, for the next few days, we aren't on speaking terms. After the Rangers - O's series is over, we'll get back to business!!!

  2. Thats the problem with most closers. So few are consistent for years. That is why a guy like Mariano Rivera will be a first ballot HOF. O's really have a solid lineup this year. Davis, Jones Mclouth,Machado Markakis Hardy man as a mets fan I wish I had that lineup.

    Cool blog and that gypsy card is bad ass!
