Trade With The Angels In Order

Trading season is heating up again. This package comes from Tom from the fantastic blog The Angels, In Order.

While not specifically stated as a trade, I will treat it as a trade to be named later. More to the point, if I find something really cool featuring the Angels, I will send it over. I am officially on the clock. Hmmm. I think I watched too much flipping draft coverage during the week.

While Chicago is adjusting to life with two managers who are more or less soft spoken, more Robin Ventura cards keep finding their way to my doorstep. There were four Ventura cards in this package, plus one of last year's managerial model, Oswaldo Jose Fidel Guillen Barrios. I'll welcome any card featuring a White Sox individual. Ventura is a player that is sorely lacking in card trades, so it's nice to see a steady stream of his cards start to trickle in.

Let's see what Tom sent over!

Thanks, Tom! These will go great in my collection. There are definitely a few that I can use. It's always fun going through players over a twenty-two year span. With Frank Thomas being so dominating and Paul Konerko being so dominating now, it's hard to imagine that Carlos Martinez was the first base option before the Big Hurt came up. I'm one of the few that remembers Mike Cameron on the White Sox, but he is immortalized on cardboard for all eternity. Great memories and a great trade!

I remember Mike Cameron roaming CF for the Sox. Always wondered why we traded him.

Wikipedia says we traded him for Pauly. Oh....that explains it.
