Brad, from the blog Red Sox Fan in Nebraska, is one of the more diehard fans I've run into. His blog features write ups, past and present, on his favorite team from Boston. Baseball cards are definitely prevalent, too: he has perhaps the most encompassing team checklist I've seen on the blogosphere to date. Take the time and check it out. Brad will definitely make it worth your time.
I sent Brad some Red Sox for a little Bowman help, both base cards and FrankenSet cards. Here's a couple that made it into the binder on the FrankenSet pages: a gold parallel of Corey Hart and an International R.A. Dickey.
Knuckleball. It follows Tim Wakefield and Dickey during the 2011 season and breaks down how they came to learn the knuckleball It also demonstrates how the pitch saved their baseball careers and features some really cool moments with Phil Niekro and Charlie Hough as well. It's on Netflix and Amazon On Demand. Enjoy!
(Sidenote: Aside from wishing I was left-handed, I now want a "do over" so I go back and learn the knuckleball. Right-handed pitchers that throw 87 really are a dime-a-dozen.)
Back to the trade... Brad helped complete six pages in my binder, two base card pages and four from the FrankenSet! Here's another good example as to what my FrankenSet looks like: 3 chrome, 3 International, 2 purple, and 1 silver ice.
