I'll start with the four cards I traded, and I think after seeing these gems, you'll realize I got some great stuff in return.
1961 Topps Yogi Berra
1962 Topps Stan Musial
This is a fantastic card and was probably the toughest one of the bunch to part with.
1963 Topps Hoyt Wilhelm
1981 Topps Traded Fernando Valenzuela
So, what did Jade have that tempted me so much and made me willing to give up some great cards? I'll build up from least to most exciting, with the last two cards being equally awesome in my opinion.
1955 Bowman Edwin Hurley
My first umpire card from the set.
1955 Bowman Gil Hodges
I usually don't like creasing on my cards, but I am a little more lenient with a vintage Hall of Famer.
1955 Bowman Robin Roberts
One of the many things I like about this set are their unique card backs. This one treats us to the best fielding play Robin Roberts ever saw.
1955 Bowman Bob Feller
I feel like this is one of the more iconic cards of the set, so again, I don't mind some creasing and paper loss in this case.
1955 Bowman Al Kaline
The highest book value of any of the cards I've shown on this post, this 2nd year Kaline is a treat. Someone penciled in RF on the front of the card, but it's still fantastic.
I still don't think I'll ever finish this set (see Mantle, Aaron, Mays), but with these cards and some recent other trades and acquisitions, I now own over half the set (166/320). I never could have predicted that many years ago when the Virgil Trucks card caught my eye on eBay one day.
