Roger that

I know that there are a few people out there that actually read the drivel I put out on a semi-regular basis.   One of those would be Roger from the Sportscard Mask-a-Rade blog, who recently commented on the Blue Jays want list that I recently put up.  His efforts to put a minor dent into the list succeeded.

I haven't done a 5-4-3-2-1 countdown in a while, so in order to show off some of the loot, let's bring that back, shall we?

Let's start with 5 2013 Topps Chrome cards:

5 out of the 6 cards I needed to finish off the '13 Chrome Jays team set are featured here.  

Melky is missing.  Just Melky.

Next up is 4 Upper Deck cards from the 00's decade

My favorite of the 4?  The John McDonald card that gives a good look at the patch honoring long time announcer Tom Cheek.  Boy did I spend a lot of time listening to him growing up.

Next up:  3 cards from 2013 Allen & Ginter

I think that Roger grabbed these before I had updated the 2013-14 portion of the want list, because I only needed the Buehrle.  No matter, the cards look great and I have a thought about who might want a couple of them...

2 Bowman Chrome cards from 2011 are up next.

Will the Jays ever fill the void left at 2B when they traded Aaron Hill?   Not this season by the looks of things...

Finally, one single player from the 2008 Topps set, but it's a good one.

Still need 6 more from the 2008 Topps set.  It was nice to at least knock this one off.  I just might hit 5000 Blue Jays cards quicker than I thought with the way the cards have been flooding in lately.

Thank you for the cards Roger, they are very much appreciated.

Thanks for reading, Robert
