Hello all. Today I come to you with my first trade post of 2011. I first and foremost must apologize for my lack of trade posts from the many awesome trades I made with so many tremendous bloggers out there during the last few months of 2010. It became much busier around here then I expected and my being unorganized really slowed me down blog wise. I consider myself a fair trader but when it came to posting them I really sucked and for that I am sorry. I love each and every trade I have made with all of you out there and don't want my lack of trade posts to reflect any negative feelings about any part of any of them. With that I am turning over a new leaf and promise to begin anew in 2011 and get back to properly thanking all you generous traders I have the pleasure to trade with.
With that being said I have the first opportunity with a package I receive from Rhubarb Runner over at “é rayhahn, rayhahn” He's a great trader and it usually goes very easy to work out a trade with him. If you got Twins, he has interest and this one was no different. He posted some Mets trade bait and he baited me in for a great trade. I sent some Twins stuff he wanted and in return these beauties showed up.
(UPDATE AT BOTTOM OF POST) I would tell you the number on the Beltran except it's a blank back error card. I love the error cards and this one is no exception. I have seen quite a few from the 80's and even own a couple but I haven't seen any in any recent years sets so I am not sure how rare this one is.
Next up some hits.
Card on Cards speculated that this blog may be named after Benny Agbayani and then this card shows up. I will state for the record that is not the case but a funny observation I must say.
black jersey color. I already have one of the John Maine cards (pictured below with the new one) but as you can see, different colored swatches. A quick E-Bay search shows several black Wagner's but only one Maine.
UPDATE: Mark from Mark's Ephemera sent me this info on the 2002 Post set.
