Drew from Drew's Cards and I made a trade recently. He ended up sending me a few Upper Deck X die cuts I'm foolishly collecting, and some 2009 Topps Updates cards I needed. He also threw in a few Brewers, the ones below being some of the most interesting ones I didn't yet own.
2009 Upper Deck SP Legendary Cuts #45 Trevor Hoffman
New nickname: "The Slowblower" (Damn. That's so good I need to do a front page post on it.)
2010 Topps Old School Parallel #19 Felipe Lopez
I like the way these 2010s look. I was caught a bit off guard because these ones, unlike those from last year, have a picture on the back. This is not something we've seen from Topps on traditional card stock, but it works, for some odd reason.
2009 Upper Deck 20th Anniversary Retrospective #72 Gary Sheffield
Still a total jag, but these 20th Anniversary cards are growing on me. As long as you don't go crazy on them, you can end up with a nice little collection that reads as an extremely choppy history of the last two decades.
