Woohoo, I made it to 20 trade posts! While I'd love to have more, that's still worth celebrating. And fortunately, today's trade package is 110% worthy of that honor.
So about 14 1/2 months ago, Brian of Play at the Plate showed off the goods from a ridiculous College World Series contest he won over at blog Autographed Cards. And what a haul it was! He ended up with beautiful 8x10 autos of Hall-of-Famers Johnny Bench and Jim Palmer, and if that weren't crazy enough, he also scored one of my favorite all-time baseball Wolverines. For that I sent him a nice package headlined by Rangers hits--a Will Clark auto and Michael Young quad relic, which he blogged about a bit less than a year ago.
Then things happened, as they do, and time passed, as it does. But we all know Brian's a great guy and he's not one to leave you hanging on a deal, so I wasn't surprised, but definitely excited, when this showed up on my front porch the other day:
my other Michigan autographed memorabilia where it will most definitely have a prominent place of its own.
Thanks again, Brian, for making sure this got to me safely after a great trade! Readers, please make sure to catch (see what I did there?) some great blogging over at Play at the Plate today.
