2017 trade package #8: I Feel Like a Collector Again
Time to get back to trade packages! Including this post I currently have three to show off, though that could change quickly considering how generous and awesome many of you are.
So about a month ago I received my first envelope from Kin of the impeccably-named I Feel Like a Collector Again. It was a three-card PWE that I'm looking at as a fun icebreaker that should lead to future trades, especially since his note mentioned he's got more to send me eventually.
Here's those three cards:
Detroit's win this afternoon over the Twins with V-Mart scoring a run on utility guy Andrew Romine's grand slam and Wilson earning a two-inning save.
Those guys were joined by another current Tiger familiar to anyone who can read the title of this here blog:
Justin Verlander's Purple Refractor (#271/499). Kin's note mentions that he figured I already had this very card, but fortunately for me he was wrong! Instead, it's my 237th different Verlander. In terms of that year's rainbow I also own the base Chrome and Refractor from this set as well as the base cards from flagship and Opening Day. It was nice to add some color to that bunch, not to mention a new Verlander in general.
Thanks again for kicking things off, Kin! I'm looking forward to trading with you once I can pile up some stuff I know you'll like, but for now rest assured that I was glad to receive this Tigers trio, all of which were new to me!
