They Still Come With Great Trade Packages

 Jeff from Wish They Still Came With Bubblegum has been trading with me for some time now and he always sends great stuff.
 Lil Alou times two!
 The great Kenny Lofton, speed, plate discipline, and defense.
 The great card front of Kenny Lofton.
 Masterpiece is right - a quartet of Twins of all stripes and refractors.
 Manny is being Manny in Kingston.
 These were both new to me Kirbys!
 I think that might be my only Bowman Best card from the rebirth of that brand. A pretty awesome Sano parallel, too!
The future!
 "They're sending these cards to England? I wonder if it's Happy Hour over there right now?"
Had to share the back of the UK Topps Card -good stuff.

Thanks Jeff! Another awesome package. I will try to put something together to send back your way soon.


  1. That Lofton is one of the best cards of the '90s.

  2. I have no stats to back this up, but I feel like Kenny Lofton has an exceptional amount of awesome cards - the parachute and "dodge baseball" cards above are certainly among them.

    1. A combo of talent and personality makes for some exceptional cardboard - see also Barry Bonds, Manny Ramirez, David Ortiz, Griffey, Dykstra, Kruk, etc. To name a few.

  3. Lofton was a beast for those Indians teams. You can even make a reasonable argument for the HOF. Probably hurt him more that he stuck around for so long.

  4. Great cards, Jeff is the man. Just posted a similar Red Sox-themed package that I received myself today!
