I know most across the blogosphere aren't really fans of trading on Twitter, but I find it really effective when I do trade. I have pulled off so many great ones with many big cards included in these trades. My secret, use established collectors that have a good background from others you trust. It's that simple.
When I recently was suggested to trade some STL Cardinals with @jnarbles from my buddy @Jake1725, I knew I was going to be in good hands and was I ever.
In exchange, I landed some great Yankee cards. Normally I don't do a lot of Yankees anymore as I prefer to stick with the NY Giants unless they are Judge, Jeter or Gleyber, but I found some other stuff I enjoyed.
Like this Nick Solak parallel. It fits in with the other Solaks I have. I know he is no longer a Yankee from what I hear, but still is a prospect who hits. That's enough for me.
Stanton pink refractor and Bernie Tek gold /50
Two cards I already had but didn't mind another copy of,
More parallels. Three of Frazier who I hope the Yankees keep. Sheffield who they just traded away to the Mariners and an A-Roid.
This was pretty cool. I at the time didn't know it was /10 til I got it in hand.
Judge! All Rise baby! Freshman insert, Topps Chrome rookie refractor (I think I might have but not sure), awesome Out Of this World insert and one of the best Judge rookies in Archives.
I didn't just get Yankees in this trade, also grabbed an Acuna Heritage Chrome parallel.
Trevor Story autograph. I just wanted one.
Keston Hiura autograph. I like to gamble on prospects.
One autograph I was super happy to add in Lindor.
My first Clint Frazier auto from Clearly Authentic. Glad to have one finally and can take it off from my want list.
And the big card of the trade, my third Gleyber Torres autograph. This one from 2018 Bowman Tek.
As I said earlier in this article, Twitter trading has really done well for me in finding the right trusting trading partners. So for those of you who don't want to try or risk it or maybe from this trade you are struck a tad curious now, just give me a comment or message through email or Twitter and I can hook you up with a few names that are very trusted. I am sure you have seen many of them being used multiple times on here.
