I mentioned a few days back that on Wednesday 22 Oct 2014 I had gotten a box o'Redskins Base I bought from James TCZ's Cowboy2288 in total there were 80some (84 or so) Skins cards that ranged from roughly 1985 Topps to 2012 Prestige. Oh where to begin with box-loads like this...Will list only a few Highlights:

Several 1991 Upper Deck I think now I have all the Redskins from that set, not 100% sure yet I still have a ton of football cards in boxes that are not cataloged yet.
Ditto with 1985 Topps Think I have all the skins, several of them I have dupes of.
2010 Topps more dupes already had them (and the Ravens) from that year I had purchased the team lot from I forget where now about 2 or 3 years ago.

ON Wednesday 10 Sep 2014: I got a package of 50 Redskins cards from a collector who had contacted me via email I guess a reader of my blog? There were some 2000 Donruss Quantum Leaf a couple of years of Leaf Rookies and Stars some 2008 Score, 2011 Score, 2013 Score, and a few different Leaf Certified even a few Topps mini stickers, UGH. Players like Michael Westbrook, LaVar Arrington, a Darrell Green, Antwaan Randle El, RGIII, Brian Mitchell, Brad Johnson, Champ Bailey and others.

In return I'm supposed to send out some modern Topps Baseball. At first he wanted only 1984 and 85 Topps but I don't have a whole lot of those years or doubles of them, there are other years he will accept and in the last email he mentioned 1995 to present will be OK. I'm assuming only Topps Flagship though which makes it a little difficult since I have tons of Upper Deck and Donruss and Topps Chrome or Topps Archives or Heritage or Bowman. It will take a while to recipricate this one. So far I have gathered 50 some Topps from 2011-current mostly 2013 Updates. I might gather some other stuff but it is slow going with my lack of motivation (Lazy) and procrastination. I wasn't really thrilled with the "trade" to begin with I tried to avoid it. Maybe I'm just being a jerk about it right now. I don't like to disappoint people though. I feel bad if I feel I have gypped them eventually the feeling goes away but it lingers while I'm filling my end of the deal plus a week or two after sending the package off.
