An Unexpected Mail Call

I got an unexpected surprise in the mail yesterday from Napkin Doon.

A few weeks back, Nap posted this card as a pickup from one of Cleve's auctions. I mentioned that I needed the base version of the card for my 2004 Greats of the Game set, but a relic card is an acceptable substitute, so I'd look for something to trade him for it.  Then, I completely forgot about it.

More recently, he posted about how Christian Colon, of the NW Arkansas Naturals, is one of his son's favorite players. The name rang a bell with me, so I checked my 2011 Heritage Minor League binder and, sure enough, I had a Colon jersey card.  Since I wasn't collecting the relic cards as part of my Heritage set, I figured it ought to go to someone who would appreciate it. So, off it went.

Fast forward to yesterday and this card arrived. I guess you could call it all part of an ad hoc trade.  Any ways, this card now brings me up to 18 out of the 29 cards in the Forever insert set.

Thanks, Nap!


  1. Glad you got it, and thanks for sending me your colon.

  2. What? It was a nice, clean colon and I appreciate it. Sometimes when colons get shipped they get nasty.
