The Angels used to play in Chavez Ravine....

(Side note: I lost my "Members" gadget over on the right side, and I can't get it back.  Ugh  Edit:  Got it back!)

I recently got a trade package from Alex over at Chavez Ravining.   I sent off some Dodgers, as I was after this guy:

 But I also got a whole bunch more.

Set needs.  I really like the minis from 2012.

These 3 had 16 more buddies.
More set needs.  He put a dent in my 2013 Update needs.

And of course there were Angels.  Way more Angels than I can show.  I'll show some highlights.  Like Gypsy Queen.  I'm not buying Gypsy Queen.  There are just too many sets available every year.  I gotta focus.  So base it is.  But now I have Gypsy Queen.

And Bowman.  These are actually pretty sharp looking cards.  And not blue either.

And parallelness.  Some Target Izturis acrobatics.  And a Chrome overpaid Wells.

There's another Cron.  And a couple of guys I've never heard of.  Cruz was a 13th round pick in 2009.  He reached AA in age 25.  And was done. Abel Baker was a 7th rounder in 2011 who spent 2013 in the Cal League.  Wait a minute...where have I heard that name?  Oh yeah, just the other day.. right here.  Tom beats me to every other Angel card, so that was appropriate.

Thanks Alex.
