On his most recent post, Kevin our beloved French blogger from The Card Papoy, brought up a great point, and I am going to steal it and talk about it here.
He asked about whether or not it is ok to send to someone else cards that have been sent to him by another blogger. An example would be if I sent cards to Kevin in a trade package and he later sent those to another blogger. Would that be acceptable? (This isn’t a question about duplicates, by the way).
My response is, yes it is. But allow me to explain why I feel this way.
As is the case with almost every package that gets sent to me, I get stacks of cards of players that I collect, catchers, and teams that I follow. However, I like a lot of players, and I follow no less than 5 teams, (and I know bloggers that collect those teams, exclusively). Therefore, if I get a card of Brandon Phillips, Gerrit Cole, or Matt Harvey, I am thrilled. Yet I am aware that there are other bloggers (dare I say friends) that would enjoy those cards more than myself. Why shouldn’t I be allowed to send those cards to other bloggers?
I view these trades that we take part in as similar in nature to those trades I made as a youth. I was never hesitant to trade cards that I had received as part of another trade.
Kevin, you asked a great question; sorry I hijacked it.
If you feel inclined, trade or give away any cards I sent to you.
