no getting around it, this is a trade post

a while back, reader brian was interested in some 2013 topps opening day cards that i posted and initiated a trade.  i appreciate that - both the reading and the trading.  i apologize that it has taken this long to get a post up showing what he sent my way.

brian shops at toys r us, thankfully, and sent me some purple dodgers from 2013 topps.  here's matt kemp
chad billingsley
and randy choate
there were a couple of cards from 2013 topps opening day, too, such as this adrian gonzalez blue sparkle parallel
and a trade wouldn't be complete these days without a double play card - here's brandon phillips turning two
upon closer inspection, it looks like the padres player is wearing a '48' memorial patch in honor of bullpen coach darrel akerfelds who passed away in june of 2012 from pancreatic cancer.  i'll look for an actual padres card showing the patch before i put this one in the memorials collection.

thanks for the trade, brian.  i hope you keep reading and we keep trading!
