One sexy trade

Just finished a massive trade with Jeffrey of One Sexy Engineer - over a thousand cards went in each direction. Though not a blogger, he has a great baseball card site with detailed trade and want lists. He's especially trying to finish up 1981 Topps, 1988 Score, 1993 Topps, 1998 EX-2001, and either of the Donruss Throwback Threads of 2004-2005, and possibly the 2004 Topps All-Time Fan Favorites. Go check out his website, which seems to have nothing to do with engineering or sexiness.

Joy of a completed set - I got the last card I needed to finish my 1990 Topps set!

I am now very close to finishing 1989 Donruss and 1991 Topps as well.

Jeffrey sent me this great McGwire, but I still need some big names from 1989 Donruss.

33 Ken Griffey Jr.
53 Gary Carter
86 John Kruk
154 Nolan Ryan
199 Kent Hrbek
208 Bo Jackson

The opposite is true for 1991 Topps. This Orel Hershiser he sent me was probably the biggest star I had needed in the set.

The rest of the cards I need are all commons, except for arguably the Canseco. I always hear bloggers complaining about having too many of these cards - maybe someone has these?

67 Rick Honeycutt
194 Xavier Hernandez
213 Frank Wills
390 Jose Canseco All Star
542 Rob Murphy
748 Al Newman
785 Scott Fletcher
788 Bob Milacki

There was a lot more than just junk wax filler. Here is just a small sample of the great cards that, if not exactly sexy, sure aren't hard to look at.

I'll be posting a lot more of these over the next few days/weeks.
