Hey guys, I have been so busy lately with school that I have really fallen behind posting trade packages. If you have sent me a package but I haven't yet posted all the great stuff that you had sent, please leave a comment and let me know.

Also, if you have sent me a package but haven't yet received anything in return, please remind me because my mind is a jumble trying to remember all of the stuff that has been sent and what is still owed to people.

(William: You definitely fit both categories. I'm just trying to properly glorify the stuff you sent in a post that is currently in progress, as well as put together a worthy return package)

Cards from Brandon at A Fan in Wisconsin

I got a great package from Brandon probably close to 3 weeks ago now. I owe him an apology for not posting these sooner, especially since he sent me some really great cards. Go check out his blog. I still owe him a package but I'm hoping to have another little something to add in to what I already have set aside. Well, lets get to what he sent me.

4 Derek Jeters
Very nice. I like Jeter, therefore I like these. I always kinda liked this Fleer Tradition set, now I have my favorite player's card from it, in addition to the world series card from the set to go with it.

A Paulie, and 3 Mattinglys
I have always had a thing for die cut cards, especially these Pacific Crowns, they are sweet. All of the cards in this scan are great!

3 Mantles, a gold Pettitte and a gold Mauer
Another, Mantle set I have to collect. the list is never ending. And finally I have some gold variations of players I actually think are worth while collecting. I always seem to pull the worthless rookies and the managers when it comes to these golds, but not when the mail comes from Brandon.

Lastly, Brandon sent me a bunch of 09 Turkey Reds to knock off my needs list. I'll show you 8 of them, but he sent me 24 total.

So there you have it, my package from Brandon, over at A Fan in Wisconsin. Go check out his blog. Thank you Brandon for the awesome cards.
