Have you seen this man???
I'm heading on a little mini-vacation this weekend which will involve a card show. I was trying to get my want-lists together, and noticed that I only needed ONE MORE Royal to have the 1976 Topps team set completed. It's good Mr. Vada Pinson above - Card #415. I am making him Target #1 for this weekend. However, if I don't end up with him via purchase -- would any of you have him for trade?
I'll post anything else notable when I return.

Whenever you book a hotel online in a strange city, you never really know if it is going to be a gem or if it is gonna be super-sketchy. You might be right by the museums, shopping, and fine restaurants -- or you might be by the all-night liquor store with a view of the sewage treatment plant and the red-light district.
It's the same with card trading. Whenever you get a trade package, it's tough to know if it is going to be a high-class trade, or a super-sketchy trade...or both.
I just made another zistle.com trade -- this time with a user named jkgrice. In exchange for a bunch of Tom Glavine cards and some miscellaneous Ginter, let's take a look at what I got.

Maybe we can find someone else to make this a little less sketchy. You there! Good sir! Ahoy! Please let us see if you are a distinguished gentleman...
|1982 Fleer Dennis Lamp|
Tinted Aviator sunglasses.....check.
Van behind the drugstore where he offers kids free candy.....check.
I love Dennis Lamp quite a bit....but if we're looking for "classy," he ain't it.
What about this young man? Just a Rookie! Surely he is not yet jaded by the world.
|1996 Score Mike Sweeney Rookie|
Well....we're definitely getting more classy as we go along. Is there anything else we can add to spruce this place up? Add a little glitz?
