Vintage (for me) Awesomeness

I recently sent Bert at Swing and A Pop-Up some cards off his '13 Topps want list.  In return he sent these three cards off my list:

'86 Topps #539
'91 Upper Deck #55
'93 Topps #410

I thought that the Hubbard was last card that I needed for the '86 team set.  Then I realized that there is a Dale Murphy All Star card #705...that's ok because I'm still going after the '86 Traded set.  The '93 All Star card completes my '93 Team set!!  Also, I don't know how I've made it so long without that Chipper Rookie card.

Speaking of Murphy, Bert also sent these:

'84 Topps #133
'80 Topps #274
'84 Topps Glossy All-Star #19
'86 Topps Glossy All-Star #18

But wait, Bert sent a lot more!

Whoa, cards from my birth year!!
'81 Topps 20, 44, 64, 87, 108, 247

'83 Topps Traded 69T

Wait, I had no clue that the Braves once had a minor league affiliate here in Savannah.  Presently the Savannah Sand Gnats are the "A" affiliate of the NY Mets.  I actually snagged a seasonal job with the team this year, so I'm getting a bit familiar with the Mets' potential future. 

'76 Topps #306

Now we've stepped into a era where both players and cards are starting to be unfamiliar.

Bert sent many more cards including the bulk of the '85 Topps team set.  I'll have to update my want list to reflect some new sets that to collect.  Thank you so much for the trade Bert!!!
