Trade Completed: @bdawg125

Yet another long trading drought has ended; this time thanks to Twitter. I’ve been finding more and more of my PC-worthy cards through places like eBay which, in turn, decreases my opportunity to draw up any trades. However, when the chance does arise, it’s nice to have a great outlet like Twitter.

Brady, otherwise known as @bdawg125 on Twitter, had landed some nice Twins hits in a group break of 2013 Bowman Platinum and, since he does not collect Twins, had no real collecting use for them. Unfortunately, he did have to wait for some time to finally receive his cards. Once the cards were in his possession, the trade was on! On his end were two prospect autos–one of Jose Berrios (a fire-balling Puerto Rican righty with set-up role potential) and the other of Trevor May (traded by the Phillies for Ben Revere and is a future candidate to join the Twins’ starting rotation). On my end were two game used memorabilia cards–both pulled from blasters. The first, a Gypsy Queen framed mini Prince Fielder (still in Brewers garb); the second, an Archives Evan Longoria.


I don’t know about the rest of you, but I always appreciate a nice on-card prospect auto, especially on a product that I happen to like. Sure, these cards may not be TRUE rookie cards, and they may not be the first cards they’ve signed as Twins, but they’re a perfect fit in my PC.

Trading with @bdawg125 did take a while–through no fault of his own–but was a pleasure and I hope to be able to trade with him again! I can definitely recommend swapping cardboard with him and encourage you to do so at your earliest convenience! While you’re at it, give him a follow and a shout on Twitter!

I am always looking for just about any Twins RC AUs (rookie card autographs). If you have any that you’re willing to give up, PLEASE let me know! Thanks!
