I contacted Andy a while ago to see if I could trade. At the time he was busy completing the 2008 Goudey set and so a recent message that he had some cards to help in my own pursuit of the set was greatly received. When he said he had some cards, he meant it, 46 cards to be exact.
All of them needed to advance further to my goal. (Link) This left me only 4 short of the first 200 base set. This will be the first set that I have completed in many, many years.
What did Andy want in return? 1971 and 1973 Topps for another blog he intends to write. Two of the many great sets from the 70's, wish I had thought of it first. I will be following carefully as he tries to complete his task and helping where I can.
As a bonus he added some Red Sox:
1993 Upper Deck #618 Billy Hatcher
1993 Upper Deck #630 Roger Clemens checklist
1998 Zenith #Z1 Nomar Garciaparra huge card!
2008 UD Baseball Heroes #19 Mike Lowell

Thanks Andy for the cards, but you have given me a dilemma~ what to pursue next....2007 or 2008 Masterpieces?
