A couple of trades to add to my year, second and third, which I think ties me with all the trades I made all last year.
First up is Caitlin, formerly of Yankees and Jays (she closed the blog due to lack of time to blog). She contacted me late last year regarding some Jeter cards that I had up for trade on Zistle and we worked out a trade that we completed in January. In return I received this very cool 2001 Pacific Private Stock Matt Williams relic with purple stripe. Williams, currently the Nationals manager, was one of the original Diamondbacks and spent 6 years in Arizona where he won a World Series title in 2001.
Next up comes from the blogsphere’s most generous blogger Jaybarkerfan and includes a collection of Phoenix Suns with a couple of Seattle Supersonics to add to the flavor. The cards include base cards, inserts and even a dual relic and autograph…sweet…
A couple of 1990s Suns
A couple of 1980s Suns in short shorts, including Jeff Hornacek the current Suns coach.
Even going back to a 1970s Sun, Walter Davis from the 2000-2001 UD Legends releaseA couple of Sonics including one of the greats, Nate McMillian who later went on to coach the Sonics.
The Suns who will always be loved around these parts are the core group that took the Suns to the 1993 NBA Finals; Charles Barkley, Kevin Johnson and Dan Majerle.
