Trade with Mark from Mark's Ephemera Part 1

I make no excuses for it but I have become a bit of a Trade Junkie (apologises Dayf for the name steal). I seek out trades and contact other bloggers in search of Red Sox cards. It started as a search for 1980's Topps and grew from there.
I have found a home for most of the cards I didn't collect but still a home for the BLUE JAYS, DIAMONDBACKS and MARINERS eludes me. I beg you if there is a collector of these teams and there are some really nice looking cards, take them off my hands please.
So a contact with Mark from Marks Ephemera saying he had some 1980's that I needed was greeted favourably. He included 36 cards from the 1980 Topps set. What I didn't expect was the small mountain of Red Sox cards he sent along too. There are too many to list at one sitting so I will break it into two(perhaps three) posts.
What I didn't realise was that at some point in my collecting I was drawn towards Nomar Garciaparra cards and Mark had included a few that got those embers burning again.
Here is the first helping from Seymour, Tennessee.

Matt from Heartbreaking Cards of Staggering Genius collects the Mariners. I was happy to find him and unload my M's as well.
