I've been doing some somewhat convoluted trades with a collector named Steve for about a year now. I say "convoluted" because generally he's not asking me for something I have in hand - he wants something he's seen in an auction in Japan and I ask Ryan to pick it up for me. Unfortunately this means Steve has to wait for me to get my latest shipment of stuff from Ryan before I can forward his cards to him. Fortunately for me, Steve has been generous enough to send me my stuff without waiting for the cards from Ryan. I got a package from him the other day with my part of our latest trade.

The key card for this trade was this card of Takeya Nakamura. BBM did an 12 card insert set of "Rookie Reprints" with the 2017 1st Version set and this reprint of Nakamura's 2002 1st Version card was included. Steve had seen that Nakamura was one of my favorite current players (and probably the one player I'd consider doing a PC for) and offered me the card.
