A Trade With The Snorting Bull Means New Kemps For Me!

I've made numerous trades over the last few years , but no one  has been as good of trade partner as Eric from The Snorting Bull. We've made four other trades in the past and just completed our fifth. Each one has involved at least one Matt Kemp card and this trade is no exception. He sent over two new Bisons for the collection this time.

The first one is this beautiful 2009 Upper Deck Signature Stars Trios card numbered to 30 which features one former Dodger, James McDonald and two current Dodgers, Chad Billingsley and of course Kemp. When we first started talking trade, the conversation began over a few 2012 Triple Threads cards. This triple signature piece was something that he remembered late in the negotiations, but I'm glad it was added as it's one of my favorites already.

Speaking of Triple Threads, we were able to involve one of the many Matt Kemp Triple Threads jersey cards Eric had in his possession. I had a few to pick from and I went with this statline card numbered to 27. It's a blue jersey piece that reads .324 39 126 IN 2011. Kemp's 2011 season was one for the ages and one I won't forget. In my opinion, Matty should have won MVP over Ryan Braun that year, but that's a discussion for another day. 

It was nice making another trade with Eric. I'm sure we've got another coming real soon. Don't forget to check out Eric's blog The Snorting Bull.


  1. Sweeeeeeeeeeet! The James McDonald auto is the best part of the trade.

  2. I need to put my part of the trade up on my page tonight. I am glad you like the Kemp! Enjoy!

    I love j-Mac cards and triple threads. But mostly triple threads. Nice pick ups.
