A Quick Trade and Wanna Trade?

I recently completed a quick and easy swap with The Lost Card Files! He is collecting the Topps 206 mini booklet set. I had one so I figured why not I'll start him off with a trade. Even though the one I owned has a Phillies player on it I was willing to let it go for other Phillies cards I did not have! I was quite pleased with these 2 relics!

The Tribute card is really sharp. I love these cards in person, never bought a pack but I always debate it. It doesn't seem like people can get the return and its so much easier to pick up singles or trade for them.

A nice white swatch of Mr Lee. There's talk on Philly sports talk that the Phillies should trade Lee. Yes he is our most tradeable commodity.. but hes also a lights out ace.. can't replace a guy like that. I don't like the idea of trading him but if you get Middlebrooks and some other prospects maybe its worth it. We shall see what happens if the Phils don't do well in June. 

I opened a blaster of Archives to see if I would like this years set.. I don't. I collected last years and the inserts (Loved the deckle edges and 3d inserts) This year I'm not sold on it. I will only be keeping the Phillies I pulled. If you want any of the above short prints or inserts please claim and any type of Phillies back and we got a deal!

Also I have the following base cards available if someone is collecting the set:

3, 11, 14, 16, 19, 20, 25, 27, 29, 33, 39, 45, 46, 52, 53, 56, 66, 72, 81, 82, 88, 91, 95, 96, 97, 98, 100, 102, 104, 106, 111, 113, 119, 124, 125, 128, 132, 136, 137, 140, 150, 159, 162, 165, 168, 169, 177, 181, 188, 189, 190, 192, 193, 194, 199

Thanks for reading and thanks for the trade and potential trades!


  1. I'm with you, loved last year's not sold on this year's. I bought a single rack pack and wasn't impressed. Flimsiest cardstock...

    Cool Nolan Ryan though!

  2. If you've still got that Hal Morris SP, I'll send you some Phillies by way of PWE. Lemme know, I'm a big fan of the '93 design, trying to see if I can wrangle the three that are in the Archives set this year.

    Reading this post reminds me of my old room mate! He always kept talking about this. I will forward this article to him. Pretty sure he will have a good read. Thanks for sharing!
