Time Travel Trading Update #48

I'm on a bit of a roll. For whatever reason , Time Travel Trades have been plentiful recently. I have a record 6 more to show off today. Including two swaps I made with myself, that makes 17 trades in the past 4 months! That's crazy, but a good crazy! There's a lot to show off today, so let's jump right in!
Trade #1: The first trade comes from Tom of The Angel In Order. Tom collects checklists, and snagged a couple I showed off last month. Tom sent a couple nice Phillies as a return package:

Trade #2: Next trade comes via the TCDB, courtesy of a member named Abraham. A trio of late 70's/early 80's cards went his way, and this trio came back:


Trade #3: Another TCDB member named Sky snagged a 1964 Topps card, and offered me a choice of 1958 Topps cards in return. I went with a great shot of  a catcher throwing down signs:

Trade #4: Juan Marichal and a couple of vintage football cards were in the targets sight of TCDB member Edward. I actually made two trades with Edward - a more modern card swap occurred, which I'll show off down the road in another post. For now, here's the great cards I have to add to the Trade Stack:
Trade #5: Chris from the blogs The Collector and The 1993 found a 1969 Jim Wynn to his liking, and generously sent some fantastic trade fodder in return:

 Edit: Chris sent a second envelope with even more cards for the Time Travel Trading Stack, but I didn't get a chance to include them here. At least you're garaunteed to see some new cards next update!

Trade #6: Last but certainly not least, my "Patron Saint Of Time Travel Trading", Bo from Baseball Cards Come To Life! decided to give a lot of vintage football cards a good home. Bo always sends a great return package, and this time was no exception:

Over 20 new cards have arrived in the stack, something for everyone! Thanks to all these amazing trade partners! If you want in on the fun, just let me know here or via the TCDB (Kep75). All you have to do is send me an older card than what you want in return!

The Time Travel Trading Project is simple in concept. I started out with a random pack of 2018 Topps Series 1 baseball cards. My aim was to trade every card in that pack for something older. Each card I receive in turn is then made available for trade, with the goal to get the oldest card I can get.

Number of trades completed: 71
Unique trading partners: 39

Number of cards mailed out: 235
Year of oldest card mailed out: 1955

Number of cards received: 466
Year of oldest card received: 1915
