It sometimes blows my mind how trades come together and how they grow sometimes.
Sometimes it's just a card for a card. Other times it's a handful of cards for one or more cards. And then there is a trade like today that started with a couple cards, ended then regrouped back into a few more cards before we mailed.
My end of the trade arrived yesterday so thought I would show it off on here of course.
Well...not all of it yet....

I am holding off on the autographs, the main course of the trade for my Coffee With segment so be ready for that. However, I will show off the other part of my trade on Twitter with @DanPortnov.
First up, this Joe Biden Goodwin Champions base. I can see people leaving these everywhere prices have gone up with him pointing at the price.
Not only a good beverage, but Arnold Palmer is possibly the greatest Golfer of all time.
Harry Houdini did things I can't imagine trying. Especially since I get claustrophobic being in an MRI machine...or in a crowd of people.
Hopefully I didn't post too many political cards on this post, sorry but I collect them.
I grabbed a couple of wrestling cards for a buddy of mine who collects them. Trying to load up a pile of them for his Christmas gift.
And the final card is a Bruce Almighty shirt swatch from Jim Carrey. I really like these A Piece Of Hollywood cards and own a dozen or so already. I think I have this one, but I don't mind owning duplicates.
Speaking of Hollywood, there is more to come in the autograph portion of this trade soon.
Thanks again to Dan for the trade.

I have had many times where my trades have built up like this one, it's part of the reason I don't ever seal and envelope until I know for sure the deal is complete.
And if for some reason it isn't and I have mailed, that's when you make a second trade. It's how you also make a friend and build up future trades.
