The Great Trade Post Hall of Fame:
Tim from the Great Sports Name Hall of Fame shot me a message the other day that he was sending me some goodies (his word, not mine, but the guy delivered). As promised, those showed up, and let me tell you, I bet Tim knew I didn't have anything ready for him at the moment besides a Craphonso Thrope auto and my MCG Dick Pole (I bet he's looking forward to checking his mailbox for a Crappy Dick trade package...) because this one was a killer:
As for the Tigers, I don't mention him much but Sheridan was one of my favorite Tigers in the 80s for some reason--I couldn't tell you why. But it's cool getting more cards of him.
I'm now left to respond in kind or shame my family and have to commit seppuku (that's right, spell checker, not septum, seppuku). I'll do my best, but in the meantime I'll remind everyone to make sure to trade with Tim, including sending stuff off his various wantlists. Thanks, Tim!
The Mojo Hand reaches far:
Jay, aka the Mojo Hand, participated in my first group break, 2010 Donruss EEE baseball last year, going in for Pam Anderson and Pam Anderson alone (hey, those autographs pay for themselves). Well, all I pulled was three of her base card, but regardless, his cash payment (sent via the not at all greedy and Netflix-hording hands of the USPS) never made it to me. Fast forward to today and lo and behold, an envelope from him actually reaches me. It included two cards,
So, long story short, I got some nice stuff and Jay will finally get his Pam Andersons. What he does with them after that is 100% not my business and I wish him well. Thanks, Jay!
What's a post without something I got from Blowout?:
This was a trade, though, which I need to do more of so I don't spend such a ridiculous amount on cards. A guy wanted an Aaron Hicks (Twins) letter I pulled from the Letterman breaks, and he had a PhotoBucket stocked with some nice Wolverines. I settled on three cards for the Hicks and another insert:
There's still more to come--I picked up a handful more cards in various Blowout deals this week so those should be arriving soon. I should also have something up regarding which Letterman autos are available FS/FT before much longer.
Speaking of Letterman, which I apparently won't shut up about, here's some posts from last break's participants: BA Benny, Midwest Cardboard and the Daily Dimwit.
While I'm giving a shout out to BA Benny (aka every other post), keep an eye out for his group break to officially begin, although there's a few slots left.
