Shannon in Sterling rocks. He gives me cards…a lot of cards. So, when I come pick up box after box of cards from him I need to bring something.
In our latest beer for cards trade I brought a six pack of Moo Hoo by Terrapin as well as a beer from Hop Haus. Hop Haus is a local brewery just a few miles down the road from my house.
This trade actually went down several weeks ago, but I just now finished pulling all the Cubs from the many boxes Shannon gifted me. In total, there were 1,219 Cubs cards. Here are some highlights of the Cubs that were included. These are cards that are among my favorites.
