You've Got Mail #2: Highly Subjective and Completely Arbitrary - Part 2

As I mentioned in my previous post, Brian from Highly Subjective and Completely Arbitrary send me a trade package. The main part of the trade package was 1984 Topps and this provided me quite a healthy start to getting this set together. After taking part of the afternoon today to sort these and update my checklist, I thought I'd share some of the cards that were included in the package.

First off ... THIS~! A sealed pack of cards! Unfortunately the Mattingly rookie card wasn't part of the pack but it definitely helped out getting more cards knocked off the list. No, I did not try the gum that was in the pack either.

A number of Hall of Famers here in Yount, Morgan, Henderson, and Murray.

Two former Big Red Machine stars, Pete Rose and George Foster.

And closing out with a random assortment of more Hall of Famers. Happy to see the Eckersley included and he's one of my favorite players to collect.

There were a bunch more good cards included but this post would be incredibly long if I took pictures of everything.

Here's a look at the final stack of everything.

Brian, thanks again for the trade. Hope my return package suits your needs.


  1. Awesome! I'm sure the return package will be great - thanks again for the trade!

  2. I think the Yount is my favorite of this terrific batch, and probably one of my favorites of the entire '84 set. Brian's one generous guy.

  3. Just ran across your blog from Brian's post. Welcome to the community! Always nice to see a new card blogger.

    1. Thanks Adam! I appreciate the welcome. Hope you come back and visit the blog often.
