Luckily in the card community, the pseudo-random distribution in packs and boxes makes this scenario very likely. When collectors prefer certain players, this becomes even easier. Case in point, my recent trade with Spiegel at Nomo's Sushi Platter. Obviously, his favorite player is Hideo Nomo. My favorite player is David DeJesus. When I have a stack of Nomos and he has a DDJ relic -- THAT is a mutual coincidence of wants! :-)
Here's what he sent me as the "meat" of this trade:
|2012 Golden Moments Relic - David DeJesus - GMR-DDE|
|2012 Allen and Ginter - Eric Hosmer and Mike Moustakas|
Stan Wall is "so 1977" right there. John Axford is a modern man, but looks like a swashbuckling, Spanish pirate....of which I completely approve. :-) He has the style of a true Canadian.
Thanks, Spiegel. May our wants coincide again in the near future!
