So to even us up this time, Dustin put in some time on COMC and, aside from getting some exciting stuff for himself that I can't wait to see, made excellent use of my singles wantlist page and went at it with a vengeance like his name was John McClane. The results?:
|Bill Freehan 1964 Topps|
|Bill Freehan 1966 Topps|
|Bill Freehan 1974 Topps|
|Bill Freehan 1968 Topps Game|
|Bill Freehan 1975 Topps|
|Rich Hill 2008 Upper Deck Baseball Heroes Autographs Black|
|Rich Hill 2008 Upper Deck Baseball Heroes Jersey Blue|
|Rich Hill 2007 Sweet Spot Signatures Black Glove Leather Silver Ink|
...this bad boy, my favorite of the whole lot. Dustin was nice enough to grab me something besides the PC/rainbow stuff from my singles/player wantlist and this was the result. I already had a gold ball and Red Stitch/Blue Ink version from the set, but this one definitely blows those out of the water, especially as far as manu-autos go. Topps can go to hell with their horrible leather manubominations while Upper Deck goes and does something right with these. That's my 30th different Rich Hill, by the way, putting him close to some of the football players in my PC.

This turned out to be another great haul from one of my favorite traders and I'm already looking forward to our next deal. Thanks again, Dustin!
