Misc Angels cards
Love the old ProCards.

Autograph Set needs
The 1992 Stadium Club is not so much an autograph set I'm working on, I just like the design.
The 1984 Topps and 1991 Upper Deck are autographed sets I'm working.

Glad to have all these.
Good trading with you LV.

Trade Cards From LV's TTM Autographs and Baseball Cards Part One

Part One - Testimony Cards

Quite frequently I've used LV's TTM successes to send out my own TTMs, so to show my appreciation for her doing the ground work, I offered her first shot at my new Autograph Traders tab: autographed cards I have for trade.  We worked out a deal, and one of the cards I was really was stoked about receiving was this one:

I have a side collection of these color-bordered testimony cards.
There's no way of knowing what players use these, so when I come across one I don't have it's really exciting.  There are lots of other testimony cards used, like you'll see below, but this is the design I like the best.

 Here are the others that I have in my collection:
So now I know there are at least 12 different players that used them.
If anyone knows of any others, or have any for trade, please let me know.

These are the other testimony cards that were included in the trade with LV.
I think I have about ten of those Tanana cards now, and that's my third different Olerud, but I dont mind.

Part Two - Angels and Autographs next.

My (Meager) First Contribution To The Super Traders

Picked up this 2013 Bowman Value Pack at Toy's R Us the other day with the idea of ripping it for Super Traders. Nothing fancy I know, but given my current circumstances this is the best I can do right now. Hopefully in the coming year I can rip a real box. 
Anyhow, Super Traders is all for fun and in no way a competition right?  Right.

So on the heals of Play at the Plates Super Traders Box Break let's dig in.

(I'm technologically challenged, so no video just scans)

Base Cards

Bowman Prospects

Bowman Chrome Prospects

Prospect Challenge Card
Probably not worth randomizing but if more than one of the 4 teams pictured actually want this maybe we will.

Bowman Gold

Bowman Purple Prospects

Now the real hits:

Mikeson Oliberto Bowman Blue 431/500

Dane Phillips Bowman Prospects Autographs BPA-DP

Not bad pulling a certified autograph from the last $4.99 discount pack at my local TRU.
This one goes to The Underdog Card Collector, Zach Malone.

I'll put these aside in my "Super Traders" sort box until I get a team bug full to mail.

And I thinks it's important to reiterate (like Wes and Brian have already done) that I will still be trading with others who aren't on the Super Traders list.

Well that was fun.
