I didn't have to wait 'til next year to start a trade with Tom - I contacted him about a 1984 Topps card I had for his set, and even though he had set up a trade already to complete it, we still traded a couple e-mails and now some cards.
Here's the contents of the blind package I received back from Tom:
Two Twins stacks and a middle stack labeled "want list"
Pretty great. Thanks Tom!
