Super what???

My first #Supertrader package showed up last week…or early this week.  I can’t remember, but I do know I was impressed.  Wes of Jaybarkerfan fame started it, so I guess it was only proper for him to kick off the trade packages as well.  I was fortunate enough to get a hit out of the 2013 Topps Museum Box he broke for the group.  It also inspired me to break a box of my own for the group, which you can see here if you missed it. 

I will be working on getting a package or PWE out to everyone in the group by the middle of next week.  I also have some packages for other people too, most notably…well, I’ll surprise you.

Wes sent over a great package of cards in addition to my hit from the box.  It got a little colorful around here with the red, gold, and blue cards.

I really do like those Topps Gold cards.  I say that because I don’t have many of them.

I also got this cool 1982 Fleer Jim Sundberg.  That’s about the most basic chest protector you could get.  No fancy designs or colors.  But it is ribbed for Jim’s pleasure. 

Everyone has their own definition of vintage and for me it’s anything pre-1981 Topps.  That’s when I started collecting and anything prior to that is stuff I didn’t see much of for a while. 

That makes this 1978 Topps Bert Campaneris vintage in my book.

I don’t generally like my cards creased, but apparently that was the way this was designed so it’s ok.  However, I do take issue with the Ticket Stud part.  More like a Ticket Dud.  Not for the numbers he put up, but he was a jackass. 

Finally, the hit from the Museum Box.  I was fortunate for Wes to pull this jumbo relic card of Elvis Andrus, #41/50.  I have a few of these and one of my is really dirty (the swatch, not anything else).  

Thanks for the great package and the whole idea for the #Supertraders group.  


  1. I have a Bill Fahey 1978 Topps if you want it :)

    1. I never turn down Rangers. Well, I might turn down 1987 Topps Rangers.

  2. I LOL'd on "ribbed for his pleasure".

  3. Hey at least we now know that he practices safe card collecting.

  4. Wes always comes through. You have another package heading yor way
