Anyway, another card in the break caught my eye and I knew I needed to get it from Sam, so I sent some stuff his way, including a decent Biggio jersey I picked up at the most recent show I hit up. Sam--I would have posted this sooner, but the US FAIL decided to wait until today to deliver this baby:
Alex Avila 2012 Gypsy Queen jersey
This is my first hit of the Tigers' awesome all-star catcher and it features a pretty solid swatch of a gray Detroit jersey. Cards like this are exactly the reason I no longer bust boxes myself--if I wasn't a Tigers fan, I'd be pissed to get a hit like this, but as a Tigers fan I'm thrilled to have it, especially without having to take the plunge and pony up for a box myself. Sam made this a very easy deal and now I can be happy to add a nice relic of one of my favorite Tigers to the PC. What can I say, I haven't been this excited about an up-and-coming Tigers catcher since Matt Nokes!
Thanks again, Sam, for another excellent deal. I hope you keep pulling some big stuff in your boxes, just make sure to save the smaller stuff for people like me.
