BA Benny's Back 2012 Trade Post Spectacularrrrrrrrrrrr

Better if you read the title in Ned's voice
So as everyone knows, Mike over at BA Benny's Procrastination and Falling Off the Earth Buffet is back and better than ever.  A couple Saturdays ago I posted the first of two parts of my Wolverines haul from our latest humongous ginormotrade over on TMM.  Speaking of procrastination, I still haven't gotten around to scanning and posting the rest of that (dealing with a new scanner, plus, you know, life) but after all the bullshit of yesterday, I wanted to post something positive today.

As usual, Mike and I sent each other a ridiculous number of awesome cards that totally fit in to our PCs.  I've traded with him a bunch and I'm STILL floored by the great stuff he comes up with, which you'll see below.  In fact, there's so much awesome stuff here that I'll save my comments, which will be brief, until the end so you can all enjoy this stuff in peace:

Tigers base stuff:

Tigers hits:
Andrew Miller 2007 Topps Turkey Red jersey
Jeff Weaver 2002 Topps T206 jersey
 Joel Zumaya 2007 Sweet Spot Sweet Swatch jersey
Justin Verlander-Victor Martinez 2009 Upper Deck Ballpark Collection Dual Swatch Memorabilia Stars dual jersey (#070/400) 
Magglio Ordonez 2005 Topps Heritage Pieces of Greatness bat
Magglio Ordonez 2008 SPx Winning Materials Die-Cut jersey (#090/150)
Magglio Ordonez 2008 Upper Deck Baseball Heroes Light Blue jersey (#090/200)
Magglio Ordonez 2008 Upper Deck Game Jersey jersey
Ryan Perry 2008 Playoff Contenders auto
Virgil Trucks 2008 Diamond Signatures auto

Lions hits:
German Crowell 2001 eX Constant Threads pants
Jahvid Best 2010 Bowman Sterling Refractor jersey (#137/299)
Kevin Smith 2008 Bowman Sterling Large Swatch jersey (#237/309)
Ndamukong Suh 2011 Prestige Rookie Review jersey
Titus Young 2011 Prestige RC (#081/999)

So, yeah, uh, a few comments:
  • THAT'S A LOTTA MAGGLIOS!  I'm super excited to be adding FOUR new Ordonez cards to the Tigers PC.
  • How cool is that Verlander/V-Mart card now that they're on the same team?
  • Those are my first hits of the not-quite-as-punkass Weaver and Andrew Miller.  I already had a Zumaya, but this one's cooler for sure.
  • VIRGIL TRUCKS OUT OF F'IN NOWHERE!  Very cool card to add.
  • At first I was hesitant about taking some of those Lions, but now that I have them they inspired me to scan a couple other cards and post my growing Lions PC.  That, in turn, will likely get me to scan my few quality Red Wings cards soon, as well.
  • This trade was more than a year in the making, but was totally worth it--and you haven't even seen the best stuff yet, which will be on TMM, hopefully this week.
Thanks again, Mike, for being the best trader I know--no offense to any of the other great trade partners I've had, but nobody so far has matched the sheer volume and quality of Mike's trade packages, though I'd certainly be more than pleased if they did!--and I hope we can do another one of these soon, especially if I dig out still more of your favorite teams to get rid of unwanted stuff here.  And once again, welcome back!
