A Bunch of Cards from Ebay Part 5: Trade Bait and a Texan

To close out this series of posts, we basically have the random singles that are left over, combined with cards I got for the sole purpose of trading.

The one "keeper" of this particular post is this 2008 Ultimate Collection Steve Slaton Ultimate Rookie Big Materials card, numbered 8/40. This piece is pretty different from a lot of what we see nowadays, in that they manage to put fabric on both sides of the card. On the front, there's a really nice three-colored patch piece, and the back contains a white jersey swatch. There was so much card surface taken up by fabric, that Upper Deck actually issued a separate companion card to this that contained all of the fine print and authenticity guarantee.

Lastly, we have all the traders. I won't go into any detail about who the players are, or what made me purchase them. Really, I purchased them because they were between $1-$2 each, and I figured there was a chance that I could trade some of them for cards that would better suit my collection.

Also, if you haven't checked it out already, visit and follow/subscribe to my other blog Not Pulled From Packs. That one focuses on my autographed memorabilia collection, which contains quite a few really cool items, and I have a show coming up at the end of this month that will definitely be adding quite a few more to the collection.
