Big set help from the Big Kahuna

So a little over two months ago, I asked if anybody had a bunch of 2009 Topps baseball dupes because I needed so many to complete that set, having not bought much in terms of packs when it came to that set.

A few weeks later, I received a fantastic trade package from Kerry at Cards on Cards that knocked out about 44% of my wants at that time--almost 100 cards!

Well, now's a good time to mention that Tim, a.k.a. the Big Kahuna, of "Enough Already" also let me know he had a bunch of help for me.  Despite some personal health issues, he was ultimately able to send those my way, and I received an awesome package stuffed with more 2009 Topps yesterday.  Thanks to the BK, I went from this,
to this:
By my count, he knocked off 55 of the remaining 120 cards I needed (as seen on my wantlist), which is simply awesome.  Here's some highlights of what he sent:
There's former Tiger Magglio Ordonez, two of the Giants' World Series heroes in Zito and Pablo Sandoval, a pair of outstanding Rockies, a nice King Felix, a Kemp (in honor of his 200th hit) and Kershaw for Greg, and Fuji's favorite--Kurt Suzuki.

Congrats, by the way, to all you Giants fans--your team had a great season and simply overmatched the Tigers with timely hitting and outstanding pitching.  Two titles in three years is really impressive, and that team has a core that could do damage for years!

So anyway, I'd like to give a huge shout out and big thanks to Tim for all this set help, and if you're reading this, BK, expect a trade package headed back your way before too much longer!


  1. We aim to please! Besides......I love this set for some reason and I don't mind sharing my extras freely!

    1. Definitely pleased! Yeah, it's a nice looking set, and whenever I have dupes like that I'm always happy to share them too. Thanks again!
