BIG trade for me!

As all of you that read these parts of the internet know I collect Phillies mainly but have side PCs of Ryan Howard, Frank Thomas and a growing one of Rhys Hoskins. (I'm trying to be selective on that PC but it's still fun to find some gems)

I recently completed a higher end trade on blowout cards. I've traded a couple times on there and haven't had any issues. Also, have traded 100s of times on here and maybe have had 1 or 2 problems but nothing crazy. I got ripped off once as a youngster when I did Magic cards online. Don't worry guy I memorized your name and address. Anyways onto happier things.

Maybe I lost a little on total value but I don't care I traded 2 non PC cards for a card I plan on keeping.

I gave up this...

I pulled these personally myself back in 2013 and they basically sat in a box for along time until I saw the Yelich go from a 20 dollar card to a 300ish dollar card. Figure strike while the iron is hot. 

Ignore the dust, I'm terrible at cleaning my scanner. Its a clean card. A sweet on-card blue auto of Rhys Hoskins! Super psyched to get this into the PC. I rarely if ever open bowman (the occasional retail here or there) so the odds of me getting this card were very low and I didn't want to buy it off ebay for the asking prices. Very happy with the trade! I don't feel that anyone lost the deal but even if the Yelich turns into higher value doesn't matter since I'm keeping this card. 

Thanks for reading and Go Phillies!


  1. WOW! Big time names in that trade! Congrats!

  2. That Rhys is awesome. It's crazy how much Yellich card prices have increased in the past year.

  3. I've never done a big-time trade like this before, and probably never will, but at least I can live vicariously through folks like you :)
