i am, once again, woefully behind on trade posts. here are some cards that i received from hot corner cards. i have completed several trades with pat, and he always sends good stuff. here is but a small part of the most recent package.
1982 kmart steve garvey
this was the first retail box set i can remember buying. i wasn't sure at the time what the 20th anniversary was about. i guess it was kmart's 20th, but to me, the local kmart looked like it opened in 1940 and hadn't been updated since. this set was also the second time i had seen 'cards that should have been' as it used the 1962 topps maury wills card that had been created for the 1975 topps mvp subset.
garvey's was one of four dodger cards in the set; the others being wills, sandy koufax (1963), and a don drysdale highlight
not all cards need to be of mvp's or boyhood heroes - so here's a 1986 fleer ken howell card
now we've entered the new and shiny and/or parallel part of the haul. from 2013 topps, pat sent me the chris capuano emerald parallel
plus clayton kershaw's target red parallel
here's andre ethier's 2013 topps heritage chrome parallel
the last couple of cards i will show are double play turns. this one is from 2010 topps pro debut
here's a no-doubter - 2012 topps opening day erick aybar
