My White Sox Obsession

A short while ago, I contacted Jeff from My Sports Obsession about a possible trade. We both collect White Sox cards and I had a bunch that were not on his list. If only he could hit a few cards off of my list, things would be great.

I have an abundant amount of White Sox cards, so I don't expect a lot of hits off of my list. It is pretty extensive, but save for a few pesky commons here and there, a good chunk of the list is unlikely to be in the average collection. I've been finding that logic to be faulty lately, as more traders have come up with stuff that blows my mind. I really couldn't ask for a better community to be a part of. People always tend to amaze me, in a good way.

My encounter with Jeff's list prompted me to finally join Zistle. I'm slowly putting my collection on there. It's not perfect, but it will do to help me get a more accurate assessment of my collection.

But enough about the wonders of Zistle, on to the wonders of the cards Jeff sent over.

Are you interested in a Britt Burns Yankees picture? I can scan it from the '87 Yankees yearbook. I think it is the only picture of him with the Yankees. He is featured in that years book even though the caption for him mentions his illness.

Glad you liked them, I was afraid I wouldn't have very many off your want lists as I haven't been collecting long. I was surprised it was as many as it was. I also noticed that a couple completed sets, I was happy for that because I didn't really send you anything special. Thanks for the trade, I look forward to receiving your package.
