Trade With Fellow Blogger Alex of Chavez Ravining . . . For The Fifth Time

In who has become my most frequented trade partner, Alex of Chavez Ravining and I completed our 5th trade trade together with this one being the smallest volume up to now. A one for one.

Alex posted about a few recent eBay purchases he made as recapped HERE which featured 4 cards of our favorite outfielder Matt Kemp. As I have refocused my collection habits I am now only searching for certain parallels when it comes to non autograph cards. One of the four he acquired is one that was still on my to get list. It's the nice shiny black refractor from this year's Topps Chrome issue.

I have been looking for it on the bay for a couple months now and couldn't find a price that I was comfortable with but once I saw that Alex had it in hand I reached out to him to see if he was willing to part with it. I am sure it was with a little reluctance on his part but he said he would trade it to me. Now I had to find him a comparable card that was good enough for him to let the Kemp go. Thankfully with my new direction in collecting I have plenty of inventory to play with so I offered him a nice SP of the newly minted NL MVP, Clayton Kershaw. Alex said sure and within the week we both had our cards.

Thank you again Alex and look forward to working on trade number 6.
