Just two packages to show off here, neither one of them terribly big.
This first one is for a couple of '13 A&G minis, a couple of infielders:
1. 2013 Topps Allen & Ginter Mini Black Border Bobby Doerr. Hall of Fame second baseman. Some have said that his numbers make him a borderline case, and that is possibly true, but he also missed some time due to service in WWII and retired young due to back problems. Even so, he was a terrific offensive second-baseman.
2. 2013 Topps Allen & Ginter Mini Black Border Will Middlebrooks. Middlebrooks has been hitting very well of late, though he has stumbled a bit in recent games. He could turn into a star yet.
The next trade had me sending a game-used card of Erik Bedard for 15 inserts/parallels. I felt pretty good about it, especially since eight of them were Red Sox.
3. 2011 Topps Chrome Refractor Kevin Youkilis. I was shorted this card in an earlier trade and I hate it when that happens.
4. 2012 Topps Update Target Red Kelly Shoppach. Shoppach, in his second tour of duty with Boston, played well but got caught up in the scandal involving Bobby Valentine and was traded off.
5. 2012 Topps 1987 Mini Jon Lester. Lester is re-emerging as an ace of the Red Sox staff.
6. 2005 Playoff Prestigious Pros Orange Manny Ramirez.
7. 2008 Bowman Blue Manny Ramirez.
8. 2009 Topps Wal-Mart Black J.D. Drew.
9. 2012 Bowman Gold David Ortiz. Ortiz is making a case for a Hall of Fame career.
10. 2011 Bowman Platinum Gold Carl Crawford.
Finally, here are the rest of the cards I got in this trade. All of which are up for trade. Let me know if there is anything you want:
