My First Trade Post!

…Now, this isn’t my first trade.  Just my first trade post you see.  I am sort of a slacker when it comes to following through.  I try, I really try…it’s just not always that easy for me.  The other trades i’ve made have been great…i’ve just found it difficult to do as many posts as I would like, and tonight I have some time.  It’s New Year’s Eve and I have time to write a post on my sports card blog…My, my, my how the times have changed…

When Collector’s Crack posted a couple of mini figures of Robert Griffin III I was enamored as I am with Redskin and RGIII things.  I begged and begged for them and CC was kind enough to part with them.  The cool thing is that I now have the full rainbow of RGIII figures for this year.  2 pieces and the set is complete!  I can’t say this is my best photography work and the background is a little weak.  I’m sure my photographer wife will give me the business about my shoot.  I guess I don’t know how to work with models that well.

It’s a very happy day at the Hog household when I can get new toys that my wife looks at and rolls her eyes. Such a patient woman to be married to a child.  I warned her! 🙂

CC was also kind enough to send me a 2013 Strata card of Robert, which I do not have already.

I’ve noticed that it’s probability very difficult to make a trade with me since I am terribly behind on my checklists (more on that tomorrow…)  I’m really hoping to make more trades in 2014 and post them on the blog (more on that tomorrow…)

Be on the lookout for your portion of the trade package CC and I hope you enjoy the cards.  Also, don’t forget to sign up for the Easiest Super Bowl Contest on the Web.

Consider yourself PIMPED!

PS – I’m trying out smaller scans of the cards as i think the gigantic scans are a bit much…although I liked how they lined up with text at the edges.  Visually I thought that was a better layout…but maybe not.  I would love to hear your input if anyone is reading.
