This will be the last in a quartet of trade related posts. The cards in this picture laden post are brought to you courtesy of, Billy from the always enjoyable (and informative!) Cardboard History.
Recently Billy posted his list of non-sport cards available for trade. And after seeing all the American Heritage cards on there, I had to inquire about a possible trade, which happened. I have not had a lot of luck in finding cards from this set, so it's really great to now have 48 more to go with the measly dozen or so I already had.
Also in this package were some thank you cards in response to some cards I sent Billy's way a while back, which you will see further down in the post.
Since it wasn't possible for me to pick out and feature just a couple of my favorites from this group of 2009-10 Topps American Heritage, I have scanned them all for your enjoyment (hopefully):
And from the 2009-10 Topps American Heritage Heroes Edition:
Here's where we get to the thank you cards part of the post. Along with the trade lists that were posted, Billy also showed a box of cards he deemed unfit for trading and asked if anyone was interested in any of them. And since I love me some vintage non-sport cards, I made sure to speak up quick. So because of that, and more importantly, because of Billy's generosity I now have some really great cards.
The really neat thing about all these too, is that I didn't have any cards from any of these sets. So even the couple of more well loved examples in here, are most appreciated.
Up first is a healthy sampling of 1952 Topps Wings:
And one of the backs:
Next is a set that not only did I not have any cards from, but I hadn't even heard of it before. Which is always fun, to get something that was previously unknown and have to go seek out all the pertinent info. So anyway here are the four from 1959 Sicle series A:
And one of the backs:
And finally two from 1963 Topps Midgee Flags:
So in closing I would like to say thank you again, Billy. The Heritage cards are fantastic and the "rejects" are absolutely wonderful!
Thanks for taking a moment to look at my page.
