This trade map has worked quite well so far. Since the last time it made an appearance, less than a month ago, I've added two more states. All of states shaded in blue include residents who have sent me cards.
The two dark blue states -- Colorado and New Hampshire -- are the most recent additions to the map. Also, in response to Captain Canuck whining about being left out, I have colored Alaska red. No, it's not Canada, and, yes, there are other states closer to Alberta than Alaska, but that's as far as I'm going. Send me some cards, CC, and maybe I'll color Montana red.
I am very happy to fill in Colorado. I found a Rockies fan and sent her some cards that were beating down the door to get out of my collection. Shelliebee mentioned the trade on her blog long ago, so it's about time I get around to reciprocating (that's your big word for the day).
The cards from New Hampshire came from Section 36. He's a Red Sox fan, as every resident of the Granite State should be. That means I am currently scrounging for random Red Sox, since I just sent out Beaneater packages to two other people. As many Red Sox cards as Topps makes these days, there still aren't enough to go around.
So, let's see what the two newest members of the trade map sent my way. And I wonder what it's going to take to get someone from Hawaii to send me cards?
