Rocky Mountain Trade

Just in case you were wondering, there IS a Rockies collector out there. Her name is Shellie and her blog is called The Middle Child. We agreed on a little Rockies for Rangers swap and I picked out 5 cards to show off.

Let's get this one out of the way. It's a 2008 TriStar Projections Chris Davis. I'm hoping Davis gets it going at the plate soon. Very soon. If not, the Rangers may be debuting another first baseman.

We have a pair of 2009 Icons Ian Kinsler cards. One base and one Retail Red parallel. Can you have a rainbow with only two colors?

We continue the Ian Kinsler show with the 2010 Chicle card. The face isn't great, but it's a nice card. I like how Kinsler wears his socks up high.

Shot through the heart, and you're to....sorry. This is an interesting shot of Ivan Rodriguez from 1997 Gallery. I'm just guessing, but let's say Pudge hits a drive to the gap that someone...say Ken Griffey Jr. tracks it down to make a diving catch. Pudge reacts...the photographer shoots...viola!

Thanks Shellie! I appreciate the cards and the chance to use "viola!" in a post.

By the way, Shellie was at the Rockies game I went to back on July 6th. Sorry we couldn't meet up just to say hi!
