*has coffee ready to go, a stack of cards and it's time for a new Cards Over Coffee*
A few weeks ago, my wife bought me 20 stamps to use for PWE trading and what usually I can stretch out for awhile, ended up being used up within a week. That's almost three PWE trades a day which is a lot for me and honestly, it was. I couldn't keep up with it and trying to pack it up all seemed like a hassle that not even coffee could help with.
I did manage to push through and get them all packed up and sent out, it took way longer than I hoped with 17 going out in one day, but it was over with and I got some great cards in return.
One of those mail day returns came from a new trader I had just started making multiple trades with on Twitter, @tony_collection
*takes a sip before showing off the goods*
Anthony has been known to trade me some great non sport cards in the past and this time was no different putting a focus on Marvel cards, especially a set I am really hoping to build.
As soon as I saw one of these 1994 Marvel Masterpieces Silver Holofoils a few months ago, I knew it had to become my next set chase.
And in this trade, I was able to get half of the set complete with landing five of the ten cards. Also, I may have added some coffee humor with each. Hope you enjoy the side notes.

and on top of this, I also traded for a few more cool looking Marvel cards called Power Blasts.

And as a surprise bonus,
Anthony tossed in this great acetate card of Silver Surfer. (me when eating a donut with my coffee)
Thanks again to @tony_collection for the trade and amazing bonus card.
*takes a sip before finishing up today's post*
This wasn't all of the cards in this trade, the rest will post tomorrow for tomorrow's holiday.
For today though, I want you to tell me which character above best represents you and coffee or let me know your favorite card of the group or favorite Marvel character.
Hope everyone has a great rest of their Wednesday, it's almost the weekend.
