Trade Mail from Nomo and his Sushi Platter

Michael, the Nomo of nomossushiplatter, reached out a while back for an Angels/Dodgers trade. I was able to knock out a little stack of Nomo's he didn't already have, and a bunch of other Dodgers for a nice stack of Angels.

Aside from a bunch of cards needed for my team sets, I pulled out following most-awesome cards:

Two Nick Adenhart from the 2008 Upper Deck Timeline set. I'm collecting this full set as well as the team set, so I need both of these cards. The card on the left is a gold parallel. You can tell that the photos were taken consecutively by the player in the background.

A 2011 Topps Heritage Chrome Robert Abreu. If you look closely you'll see that Bobby changed positions. He's now a pitcher. Only the chrome version has the "P" variation. The base card shows him as "OF".

1989 Topps Mini UK Wally Joyner. There were 88 cards in this set issued in wax packs in the United Kingdom. Johnny Ray and Mike Witt are the only other Angels in the set.

Three more 2010 Bowman Platnums. This completes the team set for the Platnums and for Platnum Prospects. I love these cards. The Mike Trout card rocks!

Thanks for a great trade Michael.
