I made a comment recently about a Karl Olson card Gavin (from Baseball Card Breakdown) picked up from a recent card show. I sent Gavin a couple of things and the other day a PWE was waiting for me in my mailbox.
Here's the goods, folks:
Yep, a couple Rynos to add to the collection. I needed both of these and now I'm 781. Score!
A Mark Prior card numbered to 100 (on the back) and die cut of a flame throwing string bean by the name of Carl Edwards, Jr. You have ever seen a more photo-shopped number than the '3' on Carl's rib cage?
Here's the card which started the trade. Karl and I share the same surname. I'm bound and determined to collect ALL of Karl's cards. I now I have three and I think I'm missing just one more: the 1952 Topps. For the record, I'm in no hurry to track down a '52 Topps, it's by far the least attractive and most expensive of Karl's cards.
Lastly, the authentic blog-used button relic card! What a throw-in for a trade package!
Thank you, Gavin! I'm so pumped to get the 7/7!
