Trade with The Lost Collector

When I decided to forego collecting modern sets, I figured my trading days were over, since almost all of the trade activity in the card-o-sphere seems to revolve around recent card offerings.  I have to admit that, while my trading activity has dropped off, it hasn't died.  And that pleases me to no end.

Example: I recently concluded a trade with AJ from The Lost Collector. I sent him a couple cards for a binder of Hall of Fame players he is putting together for his son. And I got two cards I needed for my 1973 set.

I really like that Garr is smiling so broadly in his card, but I am a little blown away that card 54 is not marked off on the checklist.  Stop a minute and try and wrap your mind around that.

Great trade! Thank you, AJ.


  1. Dude, you're end if the trade arrived while I was away, and I was blown away. I'll post about when my schedule settles down, but thank you!

    1. No worries. When I go to card shows anymore, there are so few young kids that I'll gladly take any opportunity to help spark interest in the hobby in a new generation.
