I am willing to trade the 1962 Post Cereal #181 Hal Smith(Pirates) I got if anybody has a yen for it.

Thanks for a fun contest!

Mark A. said...

Matthew, thank you for the contest.

I'm very interested in the McNair, but would be willing to offer up the Carlton in a trade.

Or maybe both. Yen?

Most pleased to win the Bilko, and since he really is a favorite, I'll keep the card. Thanks for the contest!
