Dawgbones recently contacted me about some unique items he had for me, but we needed to meet up in person to avoid shipping. He and I happen to work about 10 minutes away from each other, so it's easy.
He certainly didn't disappoint as he had this awesome Justin Upton Bobblehead for me:
It was a stadium giveaway at Harbor Park where the Orioles' AAA affiliate Norfolk Tides play. It was given away in 2008 to the first 2000 attendees, and it features Justin in his Great Bridge High School jersey. I would have gone to Great Bridge if it hadn't gotten so big and was split into GB and Hickory. Justin went to Hickory for a couple of years before moving to GB. This is a pretty rare bobblehead of Justin, and I'm proud to have it in my collection.
The other item Dawgbones had for me was a complete set of "Team Tidewater" posters from the Virginian-Pilot newspaper. He obtained unfolded versions, and they look awesome. Each one is about 11"x22".
It's crazy awesome that all 7 of the guys they picked are the guys I collect. Hopefully I'll have a card room someday where I can hang all these.
