Braves and more trade

Back in April I was finishing sorting and hand collating my entire collection and I came across a 2009 Topps Platinum parallel 1/1 Delmon Young. I remembered pulling this card out of a couple packs my mom got me as stocking stuffers for Christmas that year. I had recently started following Topher's blog at Crackin Wax so I offered the card up for trade to him as he is a Twins collector. Well Topher is really only in the game for Twins RC AU cards so he referred me to Rhubarb_Runner from "é rayhahn, rayhahn". I emailed Rhubarb, who is another avid Twins collector, and over the course of about two weeks we worked out what turned into a much larger trade. As it turns out he needed quite a few Twins base cards from the 90s to help complete his team sets and 90s cards is something I can definitely deliver! He has a great selection of Braves cards available as well as some other players I like so picking out what I wanted was pretty easy. He wrote up a report on our trade here and now that I have gotten into the blogging business I can show what I received from him in return.
