Let Me Take You Down, 'Cause I'm Going to...

I've been a very, very bad trader. 

I admit it.  I'm really bad at sending packages for trading.

But it's not because of ill intent.

It's because I haven't had either time or money to trade with other collectors on a regular basis.

Cards, of course I have cards. 

But finding good homes for them and the money to send them to all points around the world hasn't been easy.

Then last week, I finally got around to sending a few cards to people.

I sent both winners of my All-Star Rookie Team contest one Hobby pack each of 2011 Topps Update Series AND 2012 Topps Series 1. To Steve and Kyle, thank you for participating in the contest.

To Edgar Galvan, I apologize for the long delay in getting your cards out to you. So I hope that the Hobby packs of Topps Update Series and 2012 Topps Series 1, along with most of the cards from your wantlist arrived safely to you.

To the Night Owl, I hope that the James Loney gold card arrived to you safely.  I think I still owe you on a trade...but if not, then at least the card went to a Dodgers fan.

And finally, to Ryan Hughes (and to explain why I titled the post the way I did).  Thank you very much for holding this for me:

2011 Topps Update Series Darryl Strawberry #US238B.

I can only assume that the package of cards I sent to you arrived safely.  I am glad that the 1996 Cal Ripken Score card I sent to you found a good home in your collection.  Thank you very much for the Strawberry card.  What a picture on the Darryl here.  He was one of the reasons I would be nervous whenever the Cubs took on the Mets when I first started watching baseball.  He could beat you in so many ways (home runs seemed to do it against the Cubbies).

That's one more card from the growing list of SP's that I need for my collection.  I am sorry for the long delays in sending out everything.  But better late than never, I guess.  Thank you all for your patience.

I got mine safely too. It wasnt all I asked for but at least it was enough to get closer to finishing my set so im not dissapointed. The packs were a nice addition. Thanks for both the trade and the packs
