A Franken Trade

I thought I posted this on Wednesday. I was wrong. And part of the reason was I was out of town that night and so not able to. Portsmouth New Hampshire was where I spent the night and the fog rolled in...

I was happy to send Jim, the many-blog man (Garvey, Cey, Russell, Lopes, Frankendodger (this blog and project is freaking amazing), oh my o-pee-chee! (oh mon o-pee-chee!), and Timeless Teams), some 2016 Dodgers Topps series 1 and 2 cards and some inserts. In return, he sent to me 32 Darryl Strawberry cards which makes me feel in quite a debt, especially as most of them were Straw's Dodgers cards. I hope these were triplicates or cards Jim was more than happy to part with!

Here's a list of 'em...

Some early Strawberry's above here. That mustard yellow 1991 Fleer is practically a rip off of the Ketchup red 1990 Donruss, right?

For Darryl and Pinnacle, the future was so bright he had to wear shades. Too bad the future kind of clouded over...

These cards feature a happier Darryl from the 1992-1993 seasons.

Above left, Darryl looks like he's ripping one

My Strawberry collection has exploded in the last two months thank to so many trades. I can't thank each of you enough. But this post is about Jim, so the rest of you can temporarily screw. Thank you, Jim!

Hope you like my place mats! Don't worry, they don't have food on them; in fact, we rarely use them. Food tastes better when eaten on the sofa. Try it. Bet I'm right.

Thanks for stopping by!
