Pulling The Trigger On A Gestating Trade

This trade was a slow burner, but it finally got finished. There was a lot of back and forth, but a trade between a Twins fan and a White Sox fan can finally be put in the books.

This was my first time trading with Rhubarb_Runner from “é rayhahn, rayhahn” and I have to say it was a pleasure! My half of the trade can be seen here.

The reason for the length of time between my post and Rhubarb_Runner's is simple. There was a complication on my part. It was fixed, but it took longer than expected. Enough with the boring details of the behind the scenes workings of the trade. I think that's only interesting to the participants involved, if that. The real deal would be the trade itself.

If you clicked over, or are already a reader of Rhubarb_Runner's, then you've seen what I sent over. Let's see what he sent to the Chicago south suburbs.

Every card filled a hole in my collection! I love those kind of trades! Hopefully, this will be the beginning of a great White Sox/Twins trading route. I couldn't have asked for a better first time trading partner. I am impressed with the amount of variety in the package. I thought I was the only one collecting the 2008 UD Documentary of my team. It turns out that someone is just as collecting happy with that set as I am. Glad to hear it!

I'm looking forward to future trades and the "player to be named later" will be sent out this week. It is now "in hand" and it is spectacular.

oh dang, if you're looking for me, I'll be standing by the mailbox! ;)

Glad you liked the cards. I KNEW I'd find a home for that jumbo Thomas card one day. Looking forward to finding something equally unusual for the next trade to roll around. Thanks again
