Sauer Power!

Spurred on by dayf's reluctance to share his cookie, I took a look at the trades awaiting me in my Topps Million Card Giveaway collection. I actually did quite well when redeeming the codes from my Update Series box, snagging a 1955 Hank Sauer and a 1955 Vic Power. Had they been on the same team, they would have been "Sauer Power," the best 1-2 combo in the game, the likes of which would not have been seen until the Ricky Bobby/Cal Naughton, Jr. duo Shake-N-Bake.

Let's see what people are trying to trade me for these.
For the Sauer...

For the Power...

Any of these offers worth entertaining?

Too bad Fleer wasn't around in 1955. Sauer Power would've made a sweet Superstar Special.

As usual with these MCG offers, you get the worst of the deal in each one.

From my standpoint, I'd pull the trigger on the last one, only because I collect '56.

I did not do well at all in the MCG. My oldest card is a 1971 Paul Schaal. The card with the most trade offers, though, is my 1987 Tony Gwynn. I thought everyone had a set of '87 Topps, but I guess not. But really, even though I probably have four or five of the '87 Gwynn already in my attic, why would I trade it for a '90 Bob Dernier or a '92 Craig Lefferts?

I didn't get much from my Update Series cards either, save for a 1978 Cecil Cooper. My best Million Card Giveaway pulls thus far are a 1954 Eddie Robinson and 1955 Ray Jablonski
