Tim had traded another blogger for a printing plate, I think. But he didn't have everything he needed to send to Jimmy. I offered up some Dan Uggla cards.
Jimmy's happy with the cards I sent him on behalf of Tim. But then Tim wanted to know I wanted in the trade. Since my collecting scope is rather limited, I pressed him on any HoF relic/auto cards. He had an Eddie Mathews uniform relic. But I already had an Eddie Mathews bat card. Although I would have liked a different player, I'm not going to be too picky.

Eddie Mathews (card # DEC-EM)
Tim wanted to know what else he could toss in. I looked at his tradebait and nothing really caught my eye. Until this.

The Triple Folder is nice and wide, a full 7". Click on the above images to get the full effect.
It is for my dad. He collects Diamondbacks. Well, I forced him to. He lives in Arizona and follows the team. Sometime back I gave him a bunch of D-backs cards. Then I started asking other bloggers to do the same. He's got a nice stash of cards now.
Tim wasn't quite done. He wanted to know what else I desired. He sure is demanding. I did send Jimmy off some nice cards, so I wasn't offended that he wanted to toss more on the trade pile.
But I'm a lousy trader. I'm not very decisive on what I want. Sure, I've got my wantlists, but normal people don't have what I want. And Tim is not normal. So, I turned the tables on him. I made him decide what else was going on that pile. Heck, why should I do any more work than I have to?
He tossed in this little card.

Pat Borders (card # 563)
And then, to wrap it all up, he used a Fun Foods pin as the bow on the package.

So thanks, Tim, for your generosity. Another successful trade on all ends.
