Before I jump into the package, I want to give a shout out for Blue Tape and Pull Tab Awareness Week. You can head over to Gavin's blog to read all about it. Bo's trade came nicely packaged in a hard plastic container, so no complaints from me!
With the procedural matters out of the way, let's see what Bo found for my set want lists!
Here we have a selection of 2016 Bowman base. I know people typically pay no attention to the base set in Bowman but when I first got back into the hobby last year I didn't realize prospects were the main focus. I like the designs of the cards so I'm working towards this modest 150 card set.
2013 Panini USA Baseball Champions. Last year I opened a cheap box of this set chasing Kris Bryant autos. I came away with no major hits, unfortunately. I did come close to a complete base set, minus the short prints at the end of the checklist, so I'd like to finish it mainly for that reason.
Back again we come to 2008 Topps, this time the Chrome set. Not much to say about these!
A gold foil parallel from 2008 Topps. The gold foil parallel isn't the most exciting. Neither is Rick Van den hurk.
The last card in the trade was Edgaaaar Martinez from 2016 Stadium Club. Loved by all of Seattle, here we see him in action as the Mariners' hitting coach. Hopefully soon we will see him in the Hall of Fame.
Thanks for the excellent trade, Bo! I'm working on a return pack and hope to get that out to you soon!
