Something Wicked This Way Comes (Epic Trade Post Part Two)

In continuation of the Epic Trade Post from Wicked, we’ll take a look at the shiny s*it the notorious blogger sent up to grand ol’ New Jersey. We here at For Card’s Sake are huge fans of chrome and shimmering cards and we’ll accept them in any trade with open arms.

2009 Topps Chrome World Baseball Classic W13: Alex Rodriguez

I’m not a fan of the World Baseball Classic cards Topps shoved down collector’s throats in 2009, but I do like the look of this card. Maybe it’s the chrome, or maybe cause A-Rod’s on it.

1995 Topps Embossed #115: Don Mattingly

Jeez, a parallel from a 90s set. I’m shocked.

2007 Bowman’s Best #2: Derek Jeter

Bowman’s Best and Bowman Sterling is like that hot senior in high school who was incredibly pretty but incredibly egotistical, and went with the high rollers instead of the poor guys who could only afford low-end products.

2001 Topps Chrome Traded T108: Lou Piniella

In 2001, Topps released a crapload of Chrome inserts, both in their Chrome products and their regular Chrome-deprived products. Some of these inserts sounded pretty cool, like “What Could Have Been”, “Before There Was Topps”, and “King of Kings”. This particular card was from the 2001 Topps Traded set, and these Chrome parallels were seeded two in every pack.

1996 Finest #340: Ruben Rivera

Here’s something you might have not known; Ruben Rivera is the cousin of Mariano Rivera. Here’s something you did know; Ruben Rivera sucked. And stole Derek Jeter’s glove and bat and then sold them to a sports memorabilia dealer.

Shiny is always appreciated at For Card’s Sake. Thanks Wicked, and stay tuned for Part Three.  And if you missed it, check out Part One of Wicked's awesome trade.
