Sorry for the Delay in Posts and a Big Thank You

Last week I received a nice-sized box of cards from Adam over at Thoughts and Sox.  It was my first blog trade and it was a great one.  I am just sad I don't have a scanner right now to show off some of the pickups.  Adam must have spent a long time pouring over my Have List to come up with well over 200 cards I did not have.  I don't even know where to start with the highlights, there are some great ones in here.  So in no particular order here are some of my favorites:

-2009 Topps 206 and 2009 UD Goodwin Champions Jason Varitek.  There are not a lot of Varitek cards out there I do not have.  Just look at the list on the right, but Adam found a couple.

-2008 Topps Heritage T205 Clay Buchholz.  I loved the Topps 205 set from 2003, so I was excited to see this further throwback to the early set.

-2010 Topps Ring of Honor Inserts:  I only had Varitek and Manny Ramirez previously, but now have Curt Schilling, Jonathan Papelbon, and Jacoby Ellsbury.

-2008 Masterpieces Cards:  I always liked this set, but for some reason never bought much of it.

-Vintage Cards:  Lots of vintage goodies, including cards of Diego Segui, Danny Cater, Rick Burleson and Mike Nagy from the 70's, Mike Fornieles and Mike Higgins from the 60's, and a very interesting Dave Sisler from the 50's.

All great stuff, thanks a lot.
