2011 Summer Clearance Trade with the Quarry

I was not familiar with with Johnny R's Cards from the Quarry before he contacted me asking for the Rockies cards in trade. As the trade was winding down, he was running a multiple set box break and I bought in for the Phillies. Nobody picked the Astros. Since he didn't want them, he threw them into the trade.

1996 Studio #49 Jeff Bagwell4 Astros cards came out of the box break but the only one I needed was Bagwell.

1998 Aurora
Another set from the box break This was a set produced by Pacific. In 1998, Pacific had somehow lost their license from Major League Baseball but not with the player's union. The cards clearly show MLB logos, but actual team names are not mentioned. On the back of the cards it says "Pacific baseball player cards are not manufactured, sponsored, or authorized by any team or league".

2004 Topps Chrome
Just a few of the 2004 Topps Chrome cards from the break. I only had one Astro from this set. This was a pretty nice set. They look nice and even after 7 years the cards only have a slight warp.

2008 Upper Deck Documentary #1925 Hunter PenceI've gotten a few of these in these trades. Johnny sent me 8. There are 324 combines Phillies and Astros cards in this set and I'm not where near having them all. Not sure I want them all either.

2009 O-Pee-Chee BlackCoste started the 2009 season with the Phillies and ended it with the Astros. I don't have any 2009 cards with Coste as an Astro.
Hunter Pence cards are always welcome.

2009 Upper Deck Goudey

As nice as the Upper Deck O-Pee-Chee cards were in 2009, Upper Deck managed to also produce this set in the same year. Pretty creepy looking player paintings.

2011 Topps Ticket to Toppstown #25 Ryan HowardRyan Howard cards are always welcome, even Toppstown.
