Blog Trade: Mostly Free Cards From Cards As I See Them

The influx of free (kinda) cards continues! Yet another blogger, Jim from Cards As I See Them, listed a bunch of cards available first come, first serve. Rather than make this a free give-away, he did add the caveat that any number of cards could be claimed in exchange for at least one card off his want list. I managed to find one I could send him (so far - I'm still digging through my collection!), and therefore I was able to claim these in return:

The top three cards came are from a GM insert set from a larger set produced by Upper Deck for the Ken Burns documentary "Baseball: The American Epic". I had no idea this set existed, and I loved these card the moment I saw them. That photography is beautiful! I also claimed a couple of Panini's Cooperstown cards, while the Steve Kemp was a bonus card that gets me to exactly 92% complete on the 1981 Topps set!

Favorite Card: That Satchel Page card! Something about his face, and that uniform, just oozes baseball history!

Thanks for the cards, Jim!


  1. I was hoping someone took advantage of Jim's not quite free (but still very generous) offer. The American Epic cards are great; I have a Bill Mazeroski from the 1960 World Series.

    92% of the 1981 set is awesome. I hope you're able to complete it before its 40th anniversary :)

  2. The Ken Burns set is awesome! There's a card of either Ty Cobb or Honus Wagner kneeling that is gorgeous. I really need to track down one of them eventually.
