I guess I've just made the first Ryan Braun addition to my personal collection.

One of the reasons for starting this blog was to be able to share with other collectors and possibly make some deals. While there are some things in the works, my first trade in... 15 years (maybe more?) was yesterday in my class. One of my students brought me a Ryan Braun Upper Deck "Rookie Card of the Month" from 2007. Not really a Braun fan at all, and can't say that the card is super awesome, but I thought it was cool that one of my kids thought to bring it to me. He actually wanted to just give it to me, but I have a box of cards in my desk labeled by team, so I opened it up and gave him a card from the same team. I tried to find something good, but the best one I could come up with was a Zack Grienke Topps card from last year. He still seemed pretty stoked that I felt like giving him something in return for what he wanted to just give to me.
