Trade with Waiting 'til Next Year

I sent Tom, of the blog Waiting 'til Next Year, some Cubs cards that I thought he would like. It wasn't anything that we arranged beforehand. Tom returned the favor recently by sending me some great D-Backs cards (and a tin)! Thanks Tom!

Speaking of a tin...

...Tom sent this awesome 1998 Donruss Preferred tin featuring Travis Lee. You can see that it says it has "Five Cards Per Tin", but this tin had 9 cards in it and they made up this Justin Upton Triple Play puzzle. Love it! 

This was my favorite single card out of the package! I love getting Goldschmidt cards that I don't already have. Shoot. I love getting Goldschmidt cards I already have, but since I didn't have this one it was even better!

Every time I see this card it makes me think of The Lord of the Rings. To me Brandon looks like one of the elves.

Corbin should be back sometime mid season after Tommy John surgery and I expect Archie Bradley to get called up to the big leagues at some point this season.

Trumbo won his arbitration hearing this off season and I hope he performs up to his contract. The D-Backs could sure use his offense in the lineup for the entire season.

    1. The scan doesn't do the scan justice. It's supposed to be a really sparkly blue.

      Glad you liked the cards (and tin).
