The first to arrive was my second with Trading Card Database member Sportzcommish in a matter of two weeks. This one was much larger, however, and the first trade I've completed using the Database's Alerts system. They installed that recently where you can set it to notify you when a card you are looking for is added to somebody's trade list, and I posted some that he wanted, so a large trade was made- almost 150 cards going in each direction!
Now, since he's mostly a football guy moving into basketball, and I'm the kind of guy who will accept literally anything in trade, most of what he sent me was football, but that's OK because I was able to add 43 new people to my collection in that trade, including some people that this non-football fan has actually heard of, namely Joe Greene and Vince Lombardi. I also got my first Joe Gibbs football card, which now moves him to the multi-sport section (I have about 40 cards of him from NASCAR). In total, I got 122 new cards in this one trade.
He did happen to have one NBA card I needed, too...believe it or not but I still have not completed this insert set!
|But is he faster than lightning?|
The second trade I received, just a day or two after the first one, was also on the Trading Card Database, with SaveDaKid, and was all NBA. I have not processed them into my collection yet so no scans but take a look at this slide of cards.
Thanks for the trades, and for reading!
