Thursday Trading Post - Johnny's Trading Spot
I always want to start a trade post from John of Johnny's Trading Spot with the disclaimer that what you are seeing is just a small fraction of the big stack of cards he ships all over. It would break my poor scanner to try to show you everything, but suffice it to say each of these scans are a category that could include 5 to 10 times the number of cards shown!
Easily my favorite Allen & Ginter design came in 2019 - I'm curious to see if they keep something similar for 2020.
I'd never seen any of these Upper Deck SP Authentic cards before - a new to me set for sure. Big fan of the the Denard Span Rookie Exclusives card.
I dunno about Topps Gallery - I feel like this set lacks variety at times. I don't want to take anything away from the artists, but I don't like photo-realistic painting styles - maybe what makes the old Dick Perez Diamond Kings so appealing? Something just a little different can be good.
There were full or close to full team sets of Topps 2000 Limited Edition, 2005 Topps 1st Day Issue, and Topps 2000 Home Team Advantage.
A big stack of minor leaguers came through as well -Skybox, Line Drive, Star, regional and local issues....
Just a ton of fun stuff!
There was this stack of Red Foley stickers, I didn't have these sticker books growing up.
There were plenty of bat rack and sunglasses cards as well.
Thanks so much, John! I'll probably never be able to catch up at this rate, but I'll get some cards back out to you again soon!
