Trade with the Lost Collector!

I recently completed a trade with The Lost Collector! He claimed most of the Yankees from my Chrome case, and I was more then happy to trade them away for a much better team, The Phillies! I can only imagine if I was a kid in the 50s and 60s how many Mantles I would've flipped for random Philly cards.

Check out some of the wares!

This card was basically the size of my scanner! I was pretty happy when it arrived safe. It's larger then today's boxtoppers from ginter! Scott Rolen was a phenom when he was young, shoulder injuries among other things derailed his career a bit. He did have a world class glove most of his career though.

Three new hits! My first look at some Donruss and Topps Finest! The Phillies pitching staff is going to be interesting next year (especially if they trade Hamels). Maybe Tyler Cloud will make a comeback with the big club, who knows. 

Here's a sampling of some more cards. I liked the cards in the 90s with the protective peel. Made all of the cards seem super special! Love some good vintage and anytime Mitch Williams has a mullet, that's a good time! I hope he comes back to by the Phillies announcer eventually, he would do well in that role.

Thanks for the trade and thanks for reading!


  1. Thanks again! Appreciate all the Yanks you sent me. Did I really send you a 1992 Topps card? Sorry about that.
