Today was a good day. Let me count the ways:
So, without any further nonsense, let's take a look at one of the trade packages. I sent Ryan some cards to help him with sets he was working on (2009 OPC, 2011 Bowman) and actually was able to send him a card he didn't already have in his Cal Ripken, Jr. player collection. It was a duplicate Cal from one of my favorite sets, 2004 Fleer Greats of the Game.
In exchange, I got one card, but what a card it was!
Now, as I have said, I am not much into game used relic cards, but this was Mo. Need I say more? Of course not. Saying anything more would just be gilding the lily.
Because it is Mo.
This is really the first card I got this year and, I have got to tell you, it is going to be hard to top when December rolls around and it is time to countdown my favorite cards of the year. I like this card so much it is going in a binder right next to my Willie Mays autographed card.
I mean, seriously. It's Mo!
I'll try and get a post up about my trade with Ted in the next couple days, but I have my hands full closing out my current job and I have a lot of prep work to do over the next 10 days for this job interview. So, stay tuned. But, don't hold your breath. Just in case.
