No, no. Everything is just fine. I actually found a new-to-me blogger through Nachos Grande and contacted Jeff about some 2009 Tri-Star Obak I had to help complete his set. Jeff's blog is name "Cardboard Catastrophes", but his return trade package was anything but.
We'll show of the cards in a second, but first I want to thank Jeff for his overwhelming dedication to this trade. He wasn't satisfied with what he could offer me in return for the set help, so he asked if I wouldn't mind waiting a little until he could collect a few cards for me. I was okay with waiting, but I expressed how I would have been happy to just send the cards to him anyway. He insisted. Man, the blogosphere community is pretty terrific.
Here's what showed up in my mailbox last week:
But wait, there's one more and it's pretty sweet!
Next up, a couple of additions to my Sandberg personal collection. First, we have a 2006 Fleer Greats of the Game card. It's a nice horizontal card and it's only my second card of Ryno from 2006.
Last, but certainly not least, Jeff sent me a 2013 Leaf Ryne Sandberg promo card that was only available at this year's National Collectors Convertion. Yes, I live within 125 miles of this past summer's show. No, I did not go. Why? I'm still not sure why I didn't make more of an effort.
Thanks for a great trade, Jeff! Good luck on completing the rest of the Oback set from '09!
