A Trade With Tribe Cards

Despite the outcome of Opening Day for the White Sox, there is something that I am proud of concerning Cleveland today. The first part of a trade between me and David from Tribe Cards, better known as Indians Baseball Cards. Always.

David had received two White Sox cards from the 1950s in a stack of older cards that he acquired recently. He asked if I wanted these two cards. You bet!

I was told to expect a package shortly. The package came on the perfect day, Opening Day! The White Sox and the Indians would be squaring off in Cleveland and I would be watching that on television and sorting through cards from an Indians fan in the Chicago south suburbs. I can't think of a better way to spend my time!

Let's see what the mystery package contained.

1 pack of 1986 Topps Baseball Tattoos

First of all, thank you! Second of all, thank you again! I wasn't expecting all of this. I recalled many fond memories with this selection of cards. I hadn't thought about that 1985 Fleer Star Sticker book in years! I had about 75 % of the stickers in the book. I could never find the rest. I was missing one or two stickers from the Seaver wind up series. I wonder if this was one of them.

I will be ripping the pack of 18 Baseball Tattoos on A Pack A Day in the next few days. I wonder what 22 year old gum tastes like? It comes with gum! Tattoos and gum. Sounds like a rockin' good time at Archie & Jughead's Tattoo Parlor and Liquor Emporium. With Pete Rose on the pack cover, I'll bet it's good. Yeah, I know, that was bad.

I will be searching for the perfect cards for a return trade. Thank you for all the good memories. I love the fifties cards, plus everything else!

If you should happen to get doubles of the Mario Soto tattoo, keep me in mind. ;)
