Time Travel Trading Update #65


Another month full of trades means I have over 80 new cards to show you! I'm grateful to all my trade partners who help turn over so many cards and keep the stack fresh and worth checking out every month.
 
Our first trade comes from blog reader Alan, who keyed into my Red Sox fandom and sent along an octet of Boston ballplayers from the 1974 set.

Jeff (Wax Pack Wonders) is up next with some great cards. Heck, I even like the design the two Yankees are on...
 
Brendan (The View From The Third Floor) always sends a nice selection of cards, and I found it humorous he sent a double dose of Fred Lynn, Jose Cardinal and Ron Hunt cards:

The next two trades were both single cards, so I put them both on one photo. The Kellogg's card comes from Greg (Night Owl Cards), who snapped up a 1981 Topps Coke card. A TCDB trade with a newcomer named Alex landed me the Fred Kages card.

I sent regular blog reader Ken one envelope, and he sent me back three! That's a generous return of cards! Anyone working on the 2021 Topps Archives set?

 Ken also sent a nice selection of 1962 Topps:
 
Plus a bunch more awesome vintage! When I saw the markings on that '61 Ray Sadeck, it looked familiar. Sure enough, I sent Ken that exact same card in a previous Time Travel trade! This is the second straight month I've received a card that was originally sent out to someone in a previous Time Travel trade! It's my own personal Multiverse of Madness!

What's that you say? Six trades in already and we haven't seen the monthly trade from Bo (Baseball Cards Come To Life) yet? Never fear! Bo knows what the people want, and Bo delivers! He's noticed someone has been on a bit of a food issue kick, and that O-Pee-Chee has been popular lately:   

Bo also knows that 70's football has been doing well, and vintage baseball is always welcome!


I got two more trades still being completed, but those will have to wait until next time! There's plenty here anyways to keep you occupied until then!

As always, these cards are all available in exchange for an older card. You can claim your cards below, or through the TCDB (Kep75). Let's make some trades!

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: 167 (2 pending!)
Unique trading partners: 61

Number of cards mailed out: 761
Year of oldest card mailed out: 1910-11

Number of cards received: 1,136
Year of oldest card received: 1890
