Trade Me Anything VII #3

A nice-sized envelope arrive yesterday from Commishbob, who runs the 1959 Topps Blog. This happens to be the first '50s set I'll try to take a run at, so I look forward to reading Bob's posts about this set. Let's see what got traded.

Giving:
2013 Topps Update Franchise Forerunners #FF-1 Hyun-Jin Ryu / Sandy Koufax, #FF-3 Manny Machado / Cal Ripken, Jr.


Getting:
1959 Topps #330 Gus Triandos, #376 Hal Naragon
Yes, needed both of these! I have about 25% of the set, and should really start thinking about making a want list for it.

1972 Topps #226 World Series Game No. 4 (featuring Roberto Clemente)
I'm wondering if Commishbob read about how my class reads a Clemente story each year. This is muchly appreciated.

1957 Topps #152 Jack Harshman
I'm hoping Harshman was the stern disciplinarian his name suggests.

1969 Topps #572 Giants Heroes (Willie McCovey / Juan Marichal)
What a cool card. I actually prefer the title of this card on the back that says "Giant Heroes."

2013 Topps Update Gold Parallel #US265 Gerrit Cole (0916/2013)
Hmmm, I usually try to trade these things away, but now they're coming back to me. Pretty cool RC nonetheless.

1981 Fleer Star Stickers #124 Jim Palmer
Gotta take inventory of this set, too. It would look great in a skinny binder.

1981 Topps #490 Eddie Murray
The only card I already had. Actually, I have a few extra copies of this card that will soon be added to my Pull the Trigger pile I've been neglecting.


Thanks, Commish, these cards really made my day.

Sorry about the Cole card. Funny thing is I never really looked at it to even see who it was. I just tossed in a gold card for the hell of it. Turns out I posted about the guy yesterday. I had no clue he was a card I sent along or even who he was.

And yes, you need to put together a '59 want list. I probably could help you out with some of them.

thanks again for the fun 'TMA' posts.
