In the meantime, he decided to start a trade and send cards to me as a little gauze for my wounds. Well, being the savvy Blowout Forums guy that he is, he came up with a stack of cards that have me in a permanent state of owing. I've got some stuff to send him in a trade, but I think it'll take more than one package to birng us even.
When I got his package, two chunks fell out, the first was a selection of cards for my want lists and PC lists:
Ok, I would have been ecstatic with that. Dennis, however, was not through. He included a couple of Sizemore Siggies:
I already had both of them, but was more than happy to take them off his hands. Strangely, the Bowman Refractor Auto I had before was #244/500, and this one is #344/500. Anyone seen #044,#144, and #444?
What happened next was way beyond my expectactions. My expectation was for maybe a card or two of former Hokies. The first call to fall out was this:
|2008 Score Select Inscriptions Xavier Adibi Autograph #105/375|
Awesome. It'll go nicely with the Adibi auto he sent me a while back. The next few cards were also awesome. He went LeBron on me, because he sent me not one,
|2007 Playoff Contenders David Clowney Rookie Ticket Autograph|
|2007 SP Authentic David Clowney Rookie Authentics Signatures #0144/1199|
|2007 Upper Deck Trilogy David Clowney Autograph #003/113|
but four David Clowney Autos!
|2007 SP Authentic David Clowney Sign of the Times Autograph|
Unbelievable. There couldn't possibly be any more cards, could there? Oh yes, there were more. This time, he hit one of my all-time favorite Hokies from my time at VT: Eddie Royal.
|2008 Upper Deck Icons Eddie Royal Rookie Brilliance Jersey #012/199|
I've run out of things to say about this trade. It was too incredible. And I'm not done...I'll let the rest of the scans speak for theirselves:
|2008 Threads Eddie Royal Rookie Collection Jersey #406/500|
|2009 Playoff Prestige Eddie Royal Preferred Jersey #006/100|
|2008 SPx Eddie Royal Rookie Materials Star and Position Dual Jersey #117/149|
|2008 SPx Eddie Royal Rookie Materials AFC/NFC Dual Jersey #92/99|
Needless to say, I was exhausted after this package. My wife was, too, as I repeatedly said, "Holy S***! Check this out!"
Dennis, I should hopefully be getting your package out soon. Thanks, again, I'm floored.
