Trade with Plaschke, Thy Sweater is Argyle

I just wanted to do a quick post here about a FANTASTIC trade I completed with Greg at Plaschke, Thy Sweater is Argyle. This is the second trade I have completed with Greg and while the first one revolved around helping each other complete a few sets, this one mostly revolved around swapping some hits.

Since Greg is a Dodgers fan, I was incredibly fortunate to pry the Pee Wee Reese bat relic from his hands. Luckily, he had another of Reese's bat cards and didn't really like the logo embossed on the wood. In my opinion, any time you can get that fantastic looking Brooklyn logo on a card, go for it. I also got an auto of Mike Bacsik, who famously gave up Barry Bonds' career record-breaking home run. It'll go great with my Tracy Stallard autograph (he gave up Maris's 61st).

I also managed to get a few hockey hits from Greg. There aren't a ton of hockey collectors out there, so when I find one, I jump at the chance for a good trade. He sent me a Patrick Marleau (48/100) from SP Game Used, a Grant Fuhr from Champ's and a Lanny McDonald from World of Sports. Two hall-of-famers and a low SN. Not bad at all.

To top it all off, we also swapped some vintage cards from our favorite teams. I sent him two Dodgers from the early '60s and he sent me two Cubs from '59.

Thanks for the trade, Greg. I look forward to many more in the future.


  1. Glad you enjoyed the cards! Thanks for the trade Matt!

  2. Love the Pee Wee.
