Trade with Plaschke, Thy Sweater is Argyle

The moment I hinted that I had pulled a Dodger hit in my box of Series 1 Topps, Greg from Plaschke, Thy Sweater is Argyle was ready to do a deal.  He happily took my Clayton Kershaw auto, and in return he sent me a couple sweet hits for my collection.

First, a nice bat card of The Kid:

Greg had also offered me a card of a former Milwaukee Admiral that is now skating for their parent club, the Nashville Predators.  I told him that I don't really collect hockey much, but I would take a card of former Admirals-turned-Predators goalie Pekka Rinne if he had one, not that I actually expected he would.  To my surprise he quickly replied back that he did indeed have a Pekka auto!:

Thanks for a great trade Greg!

One more thing - as a teaser for my next post, I reached a big milestone in my collection this week.  Tune in next time to find out what it is!


  1. Pekka certainly seems to have the Blackhawks number. But most goalies do these days. :(

  2. Thanks again for the Kershaw and the great trade!
