CalJr3000 of Too Many Grandersons recently posted his end of our awesome trade. What started out as a request for some 1999 Finest Ripkens, quickly escalated to a multisport, big time trade. I sent him some Ripkens, a couple Gwynns, and a big stack of Michigan Wolverines and he sent be a bunch of the player I collect and a big stack of Hokies. The highlights:
A nice numbered blue Kevin Jones, an intimidating Vick, and a sweet Eddie Royal with a VT helment in a Senior Bowl Jersey. Strangely, I used to be a huge Vick/Falcons fan until everything went down a few years ago, yet I didn't have any Vick cards until I started this blog.
A couple of numbered Zimmermans.
A BJ Upton numbered to 200, and an awesome Justin Upton Bowman Chrome RC Refractor.
A few David Wrights I needed
I love that propaganda poster.
The diamond of the trade, for me, was a card I have wanted for a very long time. 2002 Bowman David Wright RC.
That card is just incredible. When I get a chance to update my Top Ten, look for this card to enter somewhere in the top 5.
Just an awesome trade. A lot of great cards changed hands, and I couldn't be any more pleased.
