I had just completed a trade with Baseball Dad from “All Tribe Baseball” a few weeks ago but I had posted a Ted Williams (I think) card that he had wanted so out sprang another trade. I didn’t have too much else to send him since we had just completed trades but he still sent me a bunch of Sox for my collection.
I didn’t have any of the Donruss Estrelles even though he had sent me a pack with our previous trade. I really like the Aparicio insert. And the Quentin update card was the only card I knew that was coming. I had no updates at this point but have gotten a few from my fellow bloggers.
He also sent me this sparkly of Konerko. I love these sparkly’s, I could collect the whole set of them, I like them that much. But I haven’t decided to collect any sets yet.
When Jack sent me the pack of Estrelles, they come with a paper checklist, of which I always threw out. If the checklist is a card, I keep it, paper, I throw it away. He also sent some packs to others and I saw that the paper checklists unfolded to a mini-poster. Crap! I bet I had a great poster. Well, Jack took pity on me, because I’m a moron. And sent me a checklist, along with this note.
Jack must know me pretty well to include the note, here’s what he sent.
An Ichiro Suzuki. Sweet! The only thing I don’t like about Mr. Suzuki is the fact that they only put his first name on all his cards. It annoys me, I don’t why, it just does. But I do like the player all the same. Thanks for taking pity on me Jack. And thanks for the trade.
