Blog Trade #15: $30 A Week Habit

I'm so excited... my 15th successful blog trade. Actually... it won't truly be successful until Robert over at $30 A Week Habit receives his card... which is a 2003 Bowman Chrome "Gold Refractor" of Dustin Moseley (#'d 048/170).

If you follow Robert's blog, then you probably already know about his ingenius and creative cardboard project. His goal is to build a set of 1,500 serial numbered Topps cards that consist of 50 cards from each of the 30 MLB teams. Here... check it out for yourself.

The Moseley will be serial card #48 in the set and as of right now, it'll be the 5th Cincinnati Reds card.

As for me... I received this sweet 2011 Topps Lineage "1952 Autograph" of David DeJesus:

DeJesus was acquired by the Athletics a year ago in a trade with the Kansas City Royals, which excited many A's fans... because we could always use another bat in our lineup.

In his eight seasons with the Royals, he had a .289 batting average. However, in 2011 he hit a measly .240 for the A's. Last week, the Athletics offered him salary arbitration... but as of right now, he hasn't made a decision. So we'll just have to wait and see whether or not he'll be back.

Either way... I'm glad I was able to pick up his autograph and help out a fellow blogger at the same time.

By the way... Robert, if you're reading this... your Moseley was shipped out this afternoon... along with a few other cards for your project. Thanks for the amazing trade!

Have a good evening everyone... and sayonara!

  1. Mark, glad to make the trade as well on this end. Thank you as well for the plug for the insanity project, it is very much appreciated.

    BTW, I think DeJesus will accept arbitration (just my opinion though)

  2. I sure hope he does... and thanks again for the trade. Look forward to future transactions!

  3. By simply making a good decision, and using a marketing company that specializes in small business marketing to build their website, the small business could streamline their marketing efforts.
