7 Cards I Will Acquire before 2011

These cards are on my hit list for the new year, in no particular order. I know, the list ain't that ambitious, but these are cards I want of guys I dig. If you have any of these drop me a line and let's set up a trade!

*Update* I've got the first two cards on this list! Thanks Ed and Daniel!

1 & 2) 2008 Stadium Club Elliot Johnson, base and auto
I posted on these two cards here. They are awesome. I gotta get them. Here's the auto, just in case you missed it the first time:

Incredible card.

3) 2009 Turkey Red Insert Carl Crawford
Everybody digs the Turkeys. Guess I'm no different.

4) 2009 Topps UDH Jonny Gomes
Sadly, it's Gomes' first non-Rays issue. Still, it's a badass card of one of my favorite players.

5) 2009 Topps Heritage Jonny Gomes
I was lucky enough to grab a t206 mini Gomes in Iowa, so this one will complete my mini "Gomes update" set.

6) 2005 UD Origins Jeff Niemann
This neovintage set is WAY underrated. Done to look like the old Play Ball cards, it actually contains some decent photography paired with a classic design.

7) 1991 Topps Brien Taylor Gold
Classic card, great prospect, non-existent career.

Have a good one and goodnight Pumpsie Green, wherever you are!


  1. I think I got you on the CC Turkey and Topps Gomes... I will add them to your pile... Happy New Year!

  2. I got the Elliot Johnson for you, both versions of the non-auto. I will send them out with the other cards early next week.

  3. Agreed on the Elliot Johnson card. I was able to pick up the auto version on eBay for $0.99.

  4. Definitely true about 2005 UD Origins being way underrated. Great looking set.

  5. Let me know if you need the Elliot johnson Auto. I read your post this morning and then saw it at the card shop today and picked it up. It looks like someone might already be sending it to you. If not, just let me know and we can work out a trade.

  6. Man, Troll and Eds, you guys are awesome!

    dkwilson, I'll be dropping you a line.

    Many thanks to all!
