Notes with trade packages are a huge plus, especially when it's written with a commiserating tone like the one on the right.
Being a Cub fan certainly has had it's drawbacks as of late, but in the end aren't there twenty-eight other teams who will have to "wait 'til next year"?
I like Adam, he gets me, and I don't mind the company.
At the most recent mall card show I picked up an old school Willie Mays and sent him off to feed ARPSsmith's obsession.
Here's what found itself in my mailbox the other day: Sweet Cub Goodness!
Billy Williams and Joe Tinker from 2013 Panini Cooperstown:
I usually try to buy one pack of everything that's at my LCS, but I haven't seen the product below yet:
Cubs prospects. Nice. On the left we have Felix Sanchez from the 2003 Bowman's Best set. The back of the card states that Felix threw 98 mph with a nasty curve. Huh. To me, it's just proof that even lefties with filthy stuff can't always stick in the show.
Dustin played in Peoria in 2011 and 2013, and I'm glad to see he is continuing to have success. It'd be neat to see signs being held by fans at Wrigley some day with the title of "Geiger Counter". You know... to count all of his home runs.
I didn't buy more than a couple of packs of this year's flagship product from Topps, but I'm getting pretty close to completing Cubs team sets from Series 1 and Series 2.
seventeen different variations of the same 2013 Topps Darwin Barney card from this year's flagship product. Yes, SEVENTEEN! That would drive me crazy.
The main cards in the trade: a Willie Mays for a Billy Williams? Yep. I didn't even blink and I couldn't be happier.
Thanks for another great trade, Adam! As always, my Giants are your Giants.
