If Sam, aka the Daily Dimwit, liked anyone but the Astros, this trade probably would have happened many months ago. The problem came down to the fact that I just don't ever have any good Astros stuff (I know, I know...is Astros stuff really ever good?). Well, not too long ago, I finally pulled an Astro auto from Series 1. Apparently, it's the only Astro auto in Series 1. Go figure.
In return, I finally got my grubby mitts on this GQ Ryan Zimmerman auto he's been holding for me:
It's my second Zim auto, and it will pair nicely with the Auto-facts card I got in a Dimwit group break. Sam also sent along some other assorted Nats, including a Zimerald from 2013 Topps:
I guess you could say I'm now passively collecting the Nats. I'm not going after them, but when I get them, I'll probably keep them in a separate box, now.
Anyway, thanks for the cards Sam! I'm glad we could finally make a deal for that Zim.
