Here on the Ides of March, I will highlight a fun little swap I did with Tony of Off Hiatus Baseball. Tony is one of the most organized collectors I have seen in the blogosphere. He consistently posts trade bait and is very good with the turnaround. I saw in that post he had some Goodwin Champions baseball cards I could use to complete the page I was making. I only wanted those two cards, so we quickly came to an agreement, a couple Gary Carter cards for those two aforementioned Champions. A simple plain white envelope exchange. Here they are, vintage classics both:
The PWE arrived well protected with a thick paper note and proper use of scotch tape, in this case, using it to support an easily removed post-it.
Thank you so much, Tony (even if it is three and half months later than your own post).
Ah, but really, all this is an excuse to showcase the Goodwin Champions page I put together, which is in and of itself just an excuse to showcase one of my new favorite cards of all time.
See, Upper Deck doesn't have a MLB license anymore so they have to get creative in how they display baseball players in their sets. In this case, they have done something amazing:
