Trade Me Anything! II: Trade #4

After last night's hefty post, it's good to get back to a trade that can be shared within a matter of minutes. Honestly, no trade is too big or too small. Today's came in from Paul in New Jersey, proprietor of Paul's Random Stuff.

Giving:
2008 Topps U&H Howard Johnson Ring of Honor #MRH-HJ

Getting:
2008 Topps U&H #UH108 Shin-Soo Choo, #UH144 Robinson Tejeda, and #UH162 Eric Stults


Pluses:
*The beautiful blue of Tejeda's jersey. Half the league wore a shade similar to this on the road in the 1980s, but now it rarely comes out to play.

*Three cards get knocked off my want list.

*Tejeda's stats, which go back to 1999 and reflect no fewer than fourteen different stints

Minuses:
*No Rice-A-Roni, Pasta Roni, Mac n' Cheese, Cheese n' Shells, Manwich, Scalloped Potatoes, Hamburger Helper, Tuna Helper, Zatarain's, or Suddenly Salad. In fact, no boxed foodstuffs to speak of at all. What the fuck!?!? Hook a brother up with some Bisquick, or something. Damn.

By the way, today's background connection is easy to spot.

I got the connection. In the movie Daredevil, the main character is played by Ben Affleck. Affleck is a renowned fan of the Boston Red Sox. The Red Sox are the team that lost to Howard Johnson and the Ring of Honor 1986 Mets. Here we see Johnson bashing Daredevil in the leg and making off with the buxom pornstar who Affleck was abusing.

Or maybe Howard Johnson has big breasts. It's one or the other.
