March was kind of a slow month for me for trading, but I did get several completed, all of which were with members of the Trading Card Database.
First to arrive was with CluelessJoe, who sent along this Chucky Atkins autograph in exchange for, if you can believe it, a copy of this card. The info card was included in some NBA set- I no longer remember which one- and since he collects the Greats of the Game set extensively he had to have it. I told him I thought that it was a lopsided trade in my favor but he was happy with it.
The second trade was with new member Doe MG, which actually arrived the same time as the Atkins auto but I opened that one first. Doe actually has a blog, Now and Zen, which is a new blog that features the Cubs. She didn't have any basketball but sent along two baseball cards. Fine with me, any sports card I don't have before is always an acceptable trade. (most non-sport too!) One of the cards, which I have not scanned yet, is from 1990 Topps, my all-time favorite baseball design. But since the scanner I have plugged in now doesn't deal well with the old-school brown cardstock, I scanned the 1992 Upper Deck card instead. It's only my third card from the 800 card set.
9 of the 13 cards were of people not previously in my collection, and two of them were non-player cards, so that's a pretty good blind guess he made, as I didn't tell him who was in my collection. I actually like the design in hand a lot more than I thought I would from seeing it on the blogs. No, it's not perfect, but in hand it "feels right" if that makes any sense.
Overall, I took in 19 cards in trade this month, so while it was light, it was still a good month. I have a few more trades in progress but I don't think they will arrive before April does so they will count then.
