I wound up tweeting this:
That was the truth for me, I'm truly getting a lot of enjoyment out of making trades on TCDB because I've traded off a lot of doubles and inserts that I'll never need or look at, and getting cards in return that have helped me build sets, or fill out player collections.
These 3 trades today will help illustrate that...
New trading partner Andrew (TCDB ID: nkandy11), sent me a single card for 3 of my player collections, including the Omega 2000 John Olerud that I think is a nice shot of him just releasing his bat right after that great swing of his. The Andrew McCutchen almost looks like he's in a Yankees uniform rather than his road grays from the Pirates. I kind of liked the garish orange that the Marlins had for a couple of years, so much so that I almost went out and bought a jersey. Almost.
I don't normally go for 1 for 1 trades, but new trade partner Chris (TCDB ID: clutchcity52) didn't have anything else available that matched my want lists, so we broke the ice with a straight up deal that netted me the Golden Moments Andrew McCutchen above.
This is one of those cards you look at and say "don't I have this already?" and then you go to the binder and it's not there.
Last up is a trio of hockey PC cards from Bill (TCDB ID:wbaker01), including a 98-99 Black Diamond triple diamond #'d/1000. Felix Potvin and his cat mask is another that I won't get tired of seeing new cards for; I'm sure I've mentioned in the past that he's my favorite goalie that played for the Leafs during my lifetime (and there's been a lot of goalies in those 50+ years).
Thank you to all for the trades, they are appreciated!! Lots more still coming in as well....
Enjoy the hobby and stay safe!
