Once my profile was set up, I posted a message in the introduction thread on the board. Very quickly responses started pilling up. Two or three pages of “welcome” responses told me this was a very active trading community. Public and Private messages told me people had cards I needed.
So I probably made a small trade
Book value wise, I make out a little ahead on this deal. Then again I am giving up some really sweet cards. The Maris was the highlight of my Sweet Spot tin, and the Marino and Dawson are both numbered to 250. I have two of that Marino though, and my trade partner agreed to the white patch instead of the teal, so that I don't mind to much. This is my first McCovey card, let alone game used or patch. It is also my first Manning jersey, which is numbered to 100. The Bonds card adds to my PC.
All in all "The Bench" is a ton of fun, and I look forward to more trades and seeing you all there!
