I wasn't going to do a traded set because the main requirement for inclusion into the set was playing (or managing) at least 1 big league game for their team. But when the two-time Blog of the Year winner gives a request, by god you better comply. Actually, a traded set really does make sense because 1986 Topps, on which I based the design, is more known today for its Traded set than the main set. There were at least 10 rookies in the Traded set that would have been the #1 rookie in the main set. The one thing I didn't want to do was wait until Spring Training to make it, but I also wanted to show players in their new uniforms. I compromised with a very small Traded set featuring new managers and some players from press conferences and photo shoots. My one rule was that either a uniform was worn OR the new team's logo was easily visible. Those photos are not ideal, but hey I beat Topps to a Josh Hamilton Angels card by about a week. Some of them actually do look pretty sharp though. Lets take a look at the truncated 26 card 2012 Quarry Unlimited Traded set including all 6 new managers.
There you go, the final new cards from the 2012 Quarry Unlimited set. I will be back tomorrow with the Grand Finale to the nearly 3 month odyssey that was the 2012 Quarry Unlimited set. Hope to see you then.
Thanx for reading.
