Trade received from Baseball Card Breakdown

A while back Gavin at Baseball Card Breakdown had posted that he had purchased a Bowman Uncirculated Rookie card of Brady Quinn, and said that he had bought if for the card holder. I, of course, got in touch with him to trade for the card. It recently came with some other goodies.

We'll start with a few cards that can be used in my Mets Opening Day Starting Lineup project.

Top (l-r): 1973 Topps #407; 1986 Topps #402
Bottom (l-r): 1994 Collector's Choice #58l; 1989 Topps #480

The Millan card will slot into the 1973 lineup. I will probably put the Seaver into the 1976 page, moving the card there into a different year. The Bonilla and Hernandez cards will go into their respective years where there are already placeholders. Those placeholders will fill extra slots where they are needed.

Of course it wouldn't be one of Gavin's trade packages if it didn't include a couple of his custom cards.
It is great that he's doing mini cards among his customs, and I love the Conforto photo with the Mr. Met baseball cap.

Here are the backs.

Amazin' work Gavin!

Now, he didn't just send me these baseball cards. From the beginning of the post you can expect the Brady Quinn card to show up. But it came with a couple of other Browns cards.

Top: 2007 Bowman Chrome - Uncirculated Rookies #BC57 (#/1079)
Bottom (l-r): 2015 Topps Chrome Mini - Rookie Autographs #168; 2016 Donruss - The Elite Series #10 (#/999)

Hey, Gavin got in on the Vince Mayle fun! Woo hoo!

And let's go Corey Coleman! Go and upset the Steelers this weekend. Please, win a game!

Thanks, Gavin, for the great cards. I've already got a few more cards put aside to send your way. We'll just see when I start getting more packages out.

  1. Glad you like! Sorry it took so long for me to get a return out. I picked up a couple Browns autos at the latest card show with you in mind, so next time should be much quicker!
