Well, thanks to everyone who participated in the great 2012 Capewood's Collections Summer Clearance Trade. The last cards were mailed out last Saturday. It was the largest trading event in the baseball card blogosphere (as far as I know), involving 23 trades in just over 5 weeks and thousands of cards changing hands. There are still three teams left which will be available for a limited time. They are:
This post will highlight just a few of the cards I received. I intend to feature each trade in a future blog post but that will take some time. I'm still going through the cards I received and I'm waiting for cards from a few of the trades. Later posts will feature links back to my trading partner's blogs.
This also happens to be my 1,000th post. I've been doing this since early 2008. Sometimes it gets hard to keep going, but trading events like this remind me that there are a lot of great cards I have that I only have because of the great contacts I've made through the blog. So the posts will keep coming.
