A place where Colorado Rockies baseball card collectors (all 3 of us) can waste some time reading about our favorite sport. The Rockies and their cards will be the primary focus, but I like to go off on tangents as well so anything and everything baseball related may be covered here.

2012 Quarry Unlimited - The Traded Set

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.

Hey, all right!

And the best thing is none of the cards are super shortprinted!
