PWE Bomb from Backstop Cards

I had a small army of PWEs show up in my mailbox over the weekend from Marcus from the fantastic Padres blog Backstop Cards.  I had a plethora of Padres cards just sitting around and approached him about a trade.  Below are the cards I got in exchange.
I needed the Vicente Padilla because the 2013 Topps is likely the only card there will ever be of him with the Red Sox and the parallels have been a little hard to get. The Youkilis and Lester cards were both on my wantlist.  The Fred Lynn (who cares about the other guys? even though George Scott was a former and future Red Sox at that point and oh yeah R.I.P. John Mayberry) was a card he had in a tradebait post.  The others were throw-ins and I am happy with them.  I had not had a 2012 Bowman Platinum purple refractor and Garin Cecchini is hitting very well this year.  I like the Desert Shield cards and they have been hard to find.  I now have five.  The Ortiz gold is terrific as well.  I did previously have the Williams and Egan but that is perfectly fine.

Thanks Marcus!

  1. Glad they made it to ya safe! That Lynn LL card looks good, and I had debated keeping the Brunansky, but the package you sent was worth tossing it in. Thanks for the trade!
