Sometimes, the small trades are the most rewarding. Brad at Red Sox Fan in Nebraska and I were able to come up with a simple swap that knocked off one of the last remaining '13 Bowman Platinum Ruby cards I needed to finish the set.
The addition of the Jarrod Parker leaves me with only three more Rubies: 24 Alfredo Marte, 36 David Wright, and 71 Tim Lincecum.
Along with the set help, Brad sent along three Topps parallels.
As a Southern California native playing for the Angels, Hank Conger fulfills two of my collecting criteria. The two Topps Green cards bring my total to 17 different in the set. I especially like the Michael Choice. The green border actually works against the yellow jersey.
Thanks again for the trade Brad! Hope to do again.
