I met a Braves collector with a few days ago with some Cardinals cards that he was trying to unload. Two in particular caught my eye. First, I have picked up a few Topps Tribute autographs the past week since it was released and love the fact that Topps has actually put out a high end product with on-card autographs. This card is a Matt Holliday serial numbered to /74. The card is my third Topps Tribute autograph to go along with my Matt Kemp and Matt Moore. I was also able to add in a Tim Hudson from an old issue of Fleer Focus and also picked up a throw in with a Ray Lankford Millennium Marks autograph. I have the Lankford card, but I don't turn down throw ins and I don't turn down Ray Lankfords. Going the other way was a very nice 2000 SPX Chipper autograph and a Andruw Jones autograph.
I saw a post earlier this week with a Clayton Kershaw autograph and answered since the person was looking for Tigers and I had a few to burn. I also do not have a single Clayton Kershaw autograph, relic, etc. in my collection and I figure I should add one before the Dodgers win something and the price goes up. The trader through in a nice Bryce Harper to boot and I sent him back a 2002 Fleer Al Kaline autograph and another nice Tigers card.
I had a collector contact me during the past week about trading for a Nolan Ryan jersey card and the collector also seems to love Triple Threads cards...maybe more than me, so I turned those to cards into three pretty sweet cards. First, I got a Fleer Platinum Lance Berkman patch. Fleer put patches into the Nameplates inserts for a few in the mid 90's and if you look you can find some sweet patches out there in these cards. I actually have another Berkman card like this, but I couldn't pass up this one. I also received two more cards for my Marquee collection with two Michael Youngs. One is a jumbo jersey and the other is a quad jersey with one small piece of patch.
