Proof: Here's what happened to the card I sent to Sam (Daily Dimwit), a situation that still has me pissed off. Apparently I missed the memo that it was USPS Opposite Day the day I mailed out his card because the geniuses that work there interpreted "DO NOT BEND" as "HERP DERP LET'S ALL TAKE TURNS SITTING OUR STUPID FAT ASSES ALL OVER THIS ENVELOPE! YOLO BIEBER CROCS!"

Will someone PLEASE get on creating a competing service that DOESN'T fuck up 80% of the time? Anyway, Sam was more than gracious about the whole thing, so I'll make sure to make this up to him the next time I see anything cool with an Astros logo on it. And now, here's the card he sent me--one I saw in his trade bait list that caught my eye and started this trade in the first place:
Miguel Cabrera 2011 Topps Allen & Ginter jersey
The Allen & Ginter base set has never done anything for me and frankly I could really do without it, (though I have a feeling a bunch of you will be chasing me down with torches and pitchforks for such blasphemy) but it does result in some pretty cool hits. Case in point, I do very much like the framed relic and auto cards, maybe because the actual card piece is small enough to justify the included relic, and the frame adds a nice touch to bring the whole thing together.
This is just my second Miggy relic featuring him as a Tiger and I'm most definitely thrilled to have it, so thanks again to Sam for making for another stupidly easy trade as usual, plus for being understanding about USPS's trademark ineptitude and total disregard for customer service. I think we all know who the REAL Dimwit in this deal was!
Stay tuned for an even larger trade package pretty soon, as soon as I can make the effort to scan it all. I won't say who it's from, but considering how huge I'm implying it is, I bet you can guess the source.
