2011 Topps Heritage 4 Trade and Needed!

Good Saturday afternoon to everyone! Hope everyone's weekend is going great so far!  I'm trying to finish up a few 2011 sets before collecting any 2012 and I'm in need of some help!  The first set I'd like to complete is my 2011 Topps Heritage set.  I'm looking for the following cards....

My set is complete!!

I have several 2011 Heritage cards for trade here.  If you're looking for something else just let me know.  I have a lot to trade including tons of 2009, 2010 and 2011 Topps base.

Trade with Spankee from "My Cardboard Mistress"

This past week I received a bubble mailer in mail from Spankee over at My Cardboard Mistress.  Not too long ago I sent him some cards that he needed for sets and some former VT Hokies.  Spankee emailed me to let me know that he sent a return package but I didn't expect to get anything like this!

First up were 17 2008 SP Authentic cards that I needed for my set.  This is one set that should have been completed long ago since it's only a 100 card set.  Yeah, I'm lazy!

Next up are some 2010 Topps inserts that I needed.  I'm getting closer to the master set, minus the autos and relic cards.

Next we have some 2007 and 2008 Topps Chrome set needs.  Spankee sent 9 2008 Topps Chrome cards in all.  I've really got into Topps Chrome the past couple of years.

Not only did Spankee send baseball cards, but he sent some football too.  In total, there were over 20 Steeler cards.  These are a few of my favorite including a 2011 Rookies and Stars Cortez Allen RC card serial numbered out of 150 and a Rashard Mendenhall RC.

Spankee didn't just include base Steeler cards though.  Here we have a 2008 SP Authentic Limas Sweed rookie "event-used" memorabilia card.  Sweed never panned out for the Steelers, who released him last September, but I'm glad to now have this card in my Steeler collection. An interesting side note; the Steelers released Sweed to make room on their roster for Kevin Dockery and former VT Hokie, Macho Harris.

Spankee also sent along this sharp 2009 UD Game Day Gear Rashard Mendenhall "event worn" memorabilia card.  I have to admit, being a Steeler fan I didn't have a lot of Steeler relic cards but my collection is really starting to take off.

Now, the cards that Spankee sent up to this point were more than enough but he didn't stop there.  Being that I'm a Yankee fan, he also sent along this sweet 2007 Ultra "Feel The Game" game used jersey card of Robinson Cano, my first relic card of Cano!

The last thing I found in the bubble mailer was a really cool 2008 Sweet Spot tin.  I never bought any of these so this was a real treat.  I wish I could have scanned it but I had trouble due to the thickness of the tin.  As cool as the tin is, what was inside really blew me away and caught me off guard.

Inside were 4 Yankee Stadium Legacy cards of Don Mattingly, all of which I needed!  Also in the tin was this bad boy......

A 2008 Sweet Spot dual jersey card of Dave Winfield and Don Mattingly!  Needless to say, I was shocked when I saw this card.  Spankee, you went above and beyond!  I can't thank you enough for the awesome cards!  Be sure to check out Spankee's blog, My Cardboard Mistress!

Trade with Colbey from Cardboard Collections

Today, I received my end of a trade that Colbey, from Cardboard Collections, and I recently made.  I sent Colbey a 2005 UD Sweet Spot Classic Tony Gwynn jersey in exchange for a card that I've been wanting for quite some time; a 2002 Fleer Classic Cuts Don Mattingly jersey.

Thanks for the trade Colbey!
