A "Wicked" Trade

About a month ago Wicked Ortega of the blog My Past Time ....... I Love It!! asked if anyone would be insterested in trading cards for MacFarlane figures that he had. I emailed and told him that I was interested in the Randy Johnson and we worked out a trade. I sent him a stack of Manny Ramirez and David Ortiz cards and he sent me the Randy Johnson figure pictured below. He also sent me a few D-Backs cards and I am going to show you a few of my favorites. Thanks Alfredo!

The pictures don't do this justice. It is awesome! I have a few other MacFarlane figures, but this is my first of Randy Johnson.

2008 Upper Deck Season Highlights card of Brandon Webb - Great looking cards commemorating Webb's 42 consecutive scoreless innings pitched in 2007.

2008 Upper Deck Dan Haren - I really like the photos that Upper Deck used for the 2008 set. Here is a good one of Haren pitching in Tucson during Spring Training.

2008 Upper Deck Justin Upton - Great action shot! I love it when you get to see the entire player on the card. I love the green grass as a background.

2009 UD Goudy Chris Young - I have seen some really interesting Goudy cards, and when I say interesting I mean horendous. But I really like this Chris Young card.

2008 Upper Deck X XPONENTIAL Brandon Webb - I have purchased some 2008 Upper Deck X recently and these XPONENTIAL insert cards are growing on me. I would like to get all 4 of them for Brandon Webb.

  1. nice pickups. I was wondering if you'd be interested in a cubs for D-backs swap. I've got about 300 Dbacks cards to trade but m noty looking for an equal return. Check out my blog:
