Blogger Trade: NAPKIN DOON!

A few months ago, I saw the blogger known as Napkin Doon issuing out a call for some base cards from 2011 Gypsy Queen. I had given up on completing that particular base set (mere moments beforehand) and immediately informed him that I had the cards he needed.
I got the cards together, took them to work with me so I could mail them on my way home, and then promptly misplaced the package. I still have no clue where in the Prime 9 of collecting hell that those cards disappeared to. So after digging through some boxes, I found duplicates and sent them off to a home where they would be loved, appreciated, and scanned for posterity.

Doon then sent me a prize package, the contents therein I share with you now:
First up, some retail parallels from 2013 S1!
I have to say, the Target reds look really sharp...
But Wal-Mart blue with the red "diamond" makes me think of those powder blue uniforms...
And really Topps? Fuentes?!?! C'mon now...

 Next, we have some international parallels from 2013 Bowman!
Have I mentioned that I LOVE these cards?
I don't think I have...
But I do!

And finally, as Sir Doon is often known to do, there was a wax pack waiting to be cracked...

1990 Donruss!
Let's do this!

 I've got show my "cardboard casualty", which isn't as bad as some I've come across...
*I wonder if anyone is crazy enough to build an entire set of cards that are from the back of the pack?
I sure as heck am not going to descend into madness that way, no sir!

 Finally the cards of note out of the pack!
Okay so half those are noteworthy, the two are a Cardinal the brother of guy that was ridiculous on the mound. 
*Also, does anyone collect player cards of coaches for their team? 
You know, pitching coach, hitting coach, manager, etc.
I'm just wondering, cause I've considered it from time to time...

Again, a big THANK YOU to Mr. Doon for sending me this trade package!

Thanks for stopping by folks!
Staying unabashed and interested,
