Legit or fleas?

Does anyone know anything about these jersey cards? I can't seem to find much on them. Just wondering if they are legit jerseys or flea market specials. The card pictured here is a 2003 Upper Deck Rickey Henderson. Any information on these would be helpful, thanks.

The Middle Child

I received a package over the weekend from ShellieB from The Middle Child sports cards, check out her blog and work out a trade with her, you won't be dissapointed. I recently sent her some Big Mac cards, Albert Pujols and Chipper Jones cards along with a few others that I hope she will like. Here are just a few of the cards that she sent to me in exchange.

Pictured above is a 1995 Upper Deck Final Tribute Ryne Sandberg #447 along with a couple of Craig Biggio cards, a 1997 Score Artist Proof PP35 and a 1998 Pacific Paramount # 169. The scan does not do justice to the Biggio Artist Proof card, it is a great looking card.

Here a a few of the Pudge cards that she sent over, a 1998 Sports Illustrated 12 of 12, a 1998 Pinnacle Mint Collections #20, Topps 2005 Opening Day #30 and a 2006 Upper Deck First Pitch #69. Great cards to add to my Pudge collection.

Also include were some Vlad cards, he is new to my collection, but thanks to ShellieB, my Vlad collection is growing rapidly. The surprise card here is the 2005 Fleer Platinum Diamond Dominators DD/VG jersey card, I was not expecting to receive this great card. I also received a 2007 Fleer Ultra #85, a 1997 Topps Gallery and a 1998 Donruss Hit List # 346.

Thanks for the trade ShellieB, I hope that we can trade again in the future.

Another trade

I recently completed a trade with blog reader Tim from Ohio. He does not have a blog himself, but he does manage to read trading blogs and work out some trades. I sent him a package not long ago filled with some Expos, Nationals and Indians to add to his collection. In return he sent some Ryno, Pudge, Biggio and Bagwell cards. Along with those he included some 70's and 80's Houston Astros cards. They were my late father's favorite team, so I am working on putting together some cards of the players that were on the team when he would watch them on television. Here is sample of the cards he sent my way. Thanks for the cards Tim, hope to trade with you again.

Clear Cut Trade

I recently completed a trade with Jason over at Clear Cut Cards I sent him a bunch of Piazza and Olerud cards along with some other players to add to his collection. In return he sent me some Ryno, Pudge, Bagwell, Biggio and Vlad cards to add to my collection. These are just a few of the cards he sent my way. Go check Jason out and trade with him, he is very cool.

Here are some Ryno and Pudge cards that I was missing, gotta love the Ryno TR #312.
Biggio and Bagwell two of my favorite players, gotta love their dedication to one team, very rare to see players do that these days.

And finally some Vlad, the greatest swing in baseball, the man with no strike I really like the UD #47 A Piece of History.
Jason, thanks again for the trade, I look forward to more in the future.
