Play at the Plate Trade

6 02 2010

As you might already know, I had a mini-collection of Ian Kinsler.  Even though Kinsler’s an awesome player, I had no reason to hold on to them.  And the perfect candidate for a handful of Kinslers was Brian from Play at the Plate.  After exchanging emails, the deal was finalized and here are the highlights of the amazing package I received:

Bart Miadich #/500, Troy Glaus #/284 (nice random #), and Mo Vaughn #/2001.  Some sweet #’d inserts.  If you look closely (which is hard because of how small the scan is), Troy Glaus’ toe looks lodged in the dirt.  Just wanted to point that out.

As you’ve heard me same many times, I’m obsessed with 2009 Topps Chrome and I love these XFractors of Erick Aybar and Jered Weaver.

I love this Darin Erstad Topps Finest Refractor #/499.  Sweet card.

Darin Erstad Lumberjacks GU bat #/500 and Elpidio Guzman Prospect Jrsy .

Two awesome Erstad relics: one a jersey w/ pinstripe and another a GU base #/350.  My first ever GU base card, pretty sweet!

And last, but not least, some on-card autos.  There’s nothing I love more than a clean, on card auto.  One of Orlando Palmeiro and the other a Tim Salmon.  My first “Big Fish” auto is a sweet one.

Thanks a lot Brian!  I really enjoy the cards and I hope you enjoy yours too!  If you don’t already know about him, go check him out at Play at the Plate!
