Bo knows trading

I recently completed a trade with Bo, of Baseball Cards Come to Life!, normally I'm not big on formal trading, but as I'm sure many of you already know, Bo is very easy to work with, so in this instance it worked out pretty well.

Bo had featured these two cards in a trade-bait post a couple of months back, I expressed interest in both of them, and after a short delay the trade was officially underway. I absolutely love the '67 Frank Robinson!

For anyone who might be interested, I will have a '72 want list up within the next few weeks.

Help with Fleer Greats and SP Cuts is always greatly appreciated.

I think I got a lot of Bo's duplicates, I'm not a big Yankees fan, but I am a fan of getting cards that help fill set gaps.

It's funny, I could swore that I had these three cards already, but after getting out their binder I found that I did indeed them. And I think I've passed these up at card shows on more than one occasion, because of thinking that I already had them, at least now I can pass 'em up knowing that I do in fact already have them.

This scan is atrocious, but the card itself is really quite wonderful, as all Archives Reserve's tend to be.

Closing out the package with...

... a bunch of... 

... Topps Lineage needs!

Thank you for all the set help, Bo! Hopefully we can trade again sometime.

Thanks for taking a moment to look at my page.


  1. Great trading with you - look forward to doing so again

  2. Sweet cards. I like the Fleer Greats with the muted(?) (sublimated?, faded? help photo guys) background. I especially like the Murray you got. I need to go find one.

    That '67 Frank is one of my favorites of mine. Spring training '66 was when they were wearing the '65 unis before busting out new style on Opening Day. Frank never wore that simple beauty ina regular game.

    1. Yeah, I don't know what you would call that type of background either.

      That is very interesting about the uniform, your knowledge of such things never ceases to amaze!
