Received a nice fat package in the mail the other day from a trade I completed with my friend Howard. Howard has a monster trade list that is it's own blog. Go check it out as I'm sure you can find something you have that he needs. He has a lot to offer in return as well.
I sent him a nice 3-stack of mostly Upper Decks cards, and he sent me ANGELS!
When he offered this certified Juan Rivera 2006 Upper Deck, I jumped at it. Nice looking card and I have no problem with the autograph being of the sticker type.
Along with a bunch of random Angels from the 80's and 90's were many cards that I can now check off of my wantlists. Howard took the time to check them out and pull the cards I needed. Amongst those are some of my favorites:
Two nice 2011 Topps Opening Day blue parallels. I really like how the blue border brightens up the photographs. And you can't go wrong with numbered cards.
A good selection of Tim Salmon cards.
Followed up by three more to add to my 2008 Upper Deck X, X-Cut set.
