A Short, Sparkly Interlude

Though The Great Trade Post Catch Up must go on, I thought it would be nice to share some newly acquired, sparkly goodies to keep things fresh. I recently won a whopping 19 cards from the 2011 Topps Diamond Anniversary parallel from a seller on Listia.

These three will be taking up permanent residence in my collection while most of the others will eventually find their way to some of your mailboxes. The big draws for me were the Yankee(obvious reasons) and Mariners(great photo of King Felix and Ichiro) team cards. I'm not a huge Pudge fan, but this is a great pic for what I think can be considered a sunset card for him, complete with a Strasburg cameo.

Now that I've made it to the post office to send the first wave of overdue trade packages out, the rest of this lot will begin trickling out in the coming weeks as I continue to catch up on sending outgoing envelopes. Tomorrow, we are back to The Great Trade Post Catch Up. Thanks for reading!


  1. Pretty awesome Pudge! I love those sparkly cards more than real diamonds.

  2. I too love the sparklies.

    Got your package today, Tim.. big thanks! So great!
