The #5 Baseball Card Type Trade

Back when I first started looking for contributors for Things Done To Cards, Matthew was one of the select few who answered the call. His posts for the site have been amazing! Most of the time that my jaw drops in the rarity and age of a card, it's been one of his.

If you haven't had the chance to check out his own blog, The #5 Baseball Card Type Collection, it's a real treat. There are so many different types of cards posted on there, it truly is a feast for the eyes. The only stipulation is that all the cards are the fifth card in the set. I've seen a lot of unique, antique cards on the blog, as well as some newer issues.

Imagine my surprise, when I get a direct message from Matthew on my new twitter account. Do I have a want list? Check. Would I like some White Sox cards from my want list? Double check. Can I send my address? You bet!

Here are the cards that Matthew sent over.

1972 O-Pee-Chee
73 - Steve Huntz
98 - Chuck Tanner

1987 Score Great Moments In Baseball
5 - Comiskey Park: July 11, 1950

1991 Topps Archives 1953
5 - Joe Dobson

2008 UD Documentary
967 (CWS37) - Alexei Ramirez (White Sox 3 - Mariners 6)
1261 (CWS41) - Paul Konerko (White Sox 4 - Angels 3)
4550 (CWS153) - Ken Griffey Jr. (White Sox 9 - Royals 4)

Thanks, Matthew! Those were awesome! I had never seen the Score card before. That was during one of my collecting lulls. The 1972 O-Pee-Chee cards really pop with more color over their Topps counterparts. I'm slowly making my way through the 2008 season. I've still got a long way to go, but I am three cards closer to my goal.

If you are curious, here's the front of that number 5 card from up top.
Beautiful, isn't it? They certainly don't make cards like that anymore. Matthew, I'll send along some number 5 type cards soon.

Thanks for the kind words and enjoy the cards! The #5 type set and blog have both been great fun to work on.
