The first Trapped In Time post I did featured another trade with TCDB member Gary. I said then that he was very generous, and this trade further confirmed that fact. He proposed a straight one-for-one trade, which on it's own was more than satisfactory, but when I opened the mail, he included an addition 2 dozen cards, most of them vintage! Of those 25 cards, only two remain:

1958 Topps Zorro (non-sport) #83 Rude Awakening

When I first saw this card in the stack I thought it was an incredibly cool addition to the project. Personally, I didn't recall ever holding a non-sports card from the 50's before. Although I'm familiar with the character, I've never seen any episodes of the TV show. There's a couple of potential trades possible, as there are 3 active members on the TCDB that have this card on their want list, but first crack goes to anyone reading my blog. if I can't swing a deal with it, I'm leaning on leaving it in the trade stack since it's such an unusual entry.

 1954 Bowman #73 Don Mueller

The original trade proposal was the 2018 Topps Opening Day insert for this card. Like I said, if the trade was purely just for this card, I considered myself very lucky and the recipient of a generous trader. The bonus cards just magnified the generosity. I wouldn't mind adding it to my collection, but I'd rather make a trade!

Last chance for either of these two cards! Make me an offer!

  1. There used to be Zorro episodes on YouTube. Not sure if they're still there.
