Trade Me Anything! III: Trade #13

The Collective Troll sent this latest trade. If he was serving up this trade in a diner, it might be referred to as "a heaping plate of anything, extra anything." Check it out.

Giving: 2009 Topps Updates & Highlights Gold #UH24 Gabe Gross (0821/2009) and Propaganda #PP10 Evan Longoria

Getting: A pack of Upper Deck World Cup '94 cards, a pack of 1992 Score Italian Calcio cards...

...a random assortment of cards and trinkets, including a 1981 Ben Oglivie card, a pack of Texaco Star Team NASCAR cards, a coupon for $2 off a blaster of 2009 O-Pee-Chee, a Charlotte Stone Crabs 2009 schedule, a Jeff Grayer card, a bunch of 1982 Topps cards from my want list (best represented by the Steve Carlton amputee Highlight card), a 1987 Topps Coin of Von Hayes, and a 20c South African coin...

...with the trade being rounded out by a series of Bradentucky Bombers All-Girl Roller Derby flyers




Pluses:
*Isn't that Stone Crabs logo spectacular? They took the colors of the Memphis Grizzlies and made a logo that's easily ten... no, fifteen times better. It will take all of my willpower not to order this T-shirt within the next 24 hours.

*The Upper Deck football cards are genuinely intriguing. I actually put together the whole set of the American version of the cards (including the Mia Hamm rookie), but these look like the German variation. Hau ab!
The Score aren't so bad, either. Looks like Ruud Gullit on the front. I'm hoping for either him or a Roberto Donadoni.

*I was actually withholding one of the rollergirl cards. Check out this one that pays homage to Russ Meyer's Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill!

(I do own that DVD as well. "But, how can that be?" you shriek exasperatedly. Do not forget about French Region 2 imports and region-free DVD players, kids.)

Minuses:
*Jeff Grayer? At least go with one of the slow white guys. If not a Fred Roberts, then at least a Frank Brickowski.

*Six letters: N-A-S-C-A-R. This pack will never be opened.

*I haven't seen an O-Pee-Chee blaster at my Target in months. New Year's Eve, perhaps?

Oh, and there's no background DVD today. I searched and searched, but nothing seemed right. (Don't own Ray or Evan Almighty.) Sure, I could have made a stretch, but it would have sucked. Why cheapen a universally-held tradition?

I think Babe would have been funny for Gabe.

Also you should totally open the Nascar cards. Might get a Dick Trickle dude.

I need to trade Troll something quick so I can get a Faster Rollergirl Hit! Hit! flyer.

You made out like a bandit - The Score soccer cards ae pretty good deal.

There maybe a few gems - Inzaghi (Juventus) or Franco Zola (West Ham) rookies, Gullit, Van Basten, Maldini, Baresi or a few other AC Milan greats.

The MLS connection may include Walter Zenga, Giuseppe Galderisi or Roberto Donadoni.

post scans if you rip it !
