Trade Me Anything! III: Trade #7

It's Monday, I'm counting down the days until Thanksgiving break starts (7 school, if it matters), and it's time for another trade. Could be anything. The next envelope is from Bill in Virginia.

Giving: 2009 Topps Updates & Highlights #TTT54 Adam Jones Topps Town Blue

Getting: 1969-70 Topps #14 Jon McGlocklin, the cut-out cover of the July 26, 1975 issue of The Sporting News featuring Robin Yount


Pluses:
*Yount.
Young.
Youthful.
Yes.

*I actually have a funny anecdote about Jon McGlocklin. In Milwaukee, he is still a pretty high-profile guy, seeing as he's the Bucks color man on the Fox Sports TV broadcasts. One of my aunts is a nurse at one of the hospitals in town, and at one gathering, talk turned to any famous patients she has cared for. I believe that when it came to "Johnny Mac," the phrase she used was something like "such a big baby." Afraid of needles much?

Minuses:
*Absolutely nothing. This is probably going to be my favorite trade of Trade Me Anything! III.

Glad you liked the trade. I'm guessing the connection between Adam Jones and "Homicide" is that they both do their bidness in Balmer. How 'bout dem O's hon?
