Time Travel Trading Update #12

For the first time since I started this project, the number of cards in the trade stack has decreased. I pimped out a couple of cards two weeks ago, and didn't generate any interest. So Stephen Drew and Rudy May officially join my collection, and two more cards are put under the spotlight. This time around, I'll lead off with some legitimate star power:

1992 Topps #560 Rickey Henderson

I know, I know, it's junk wax era. But as far as cards from that era go, this one is one of the better ones! The picture of Rickey swinging is perfectly framed by the matching color border.

How Acquired - Received with 2 other cards in exchange for 2018 Topps Atlanta Braves, 2018 Topps Legends in the Making Carlos Correa insert, and a 1985 Topps Dick Williams.

Why Should You Want This Card? - It's Rickey, man! Look at all that red on the back of his card!

1960 Topps #138 Art Mahaffey (RC, RS)

Mahaffey hasn't been in the trade stack for as long as most of these other cards, but with so many cards featured in the post, I'm curious if it got overlooked. This is a great vintage card!

How Acquired - Received with 1 other card in exchange for 2 1971 Topps cards, Ken Brett and Hal McRae.

Why Should You Want This Card? - The 1960 Rookie Star subset is one of the most recognizable designs vintage has to offer. Also, check out that amazing cartoon on the back!

It's been over 6 weeks without a Time Travel trade! Who will stop this sad slump I'm in? Make an offer!

  1. The oldest cards I have in the trade boxes are 1980 Topps. I'd be glad to take the 1995 Comic Images PR Baseball card off your hands. You can even choose the card #: 32, 116, 143, 307 or 532.

    1. Sounds good to me! I'll take #143 in return. I'll get your card mailed out this week!

  2. What are you looking for in return? I would like that 1967 Philadelphia NY Giants team card

    1. Just anything older than what you are getting. I prefer baseball, but obviously that's not set in stone. The point is to try and trade for older cards.
