At any rate, I've fallen behind in trade posts, starting with an epic trade from Wicked Ortega. Well, this is my end.
A 1956 Doby:
Worked out in the trade were some other Rays cards.
I don't get too much into the high end stuff (is Sweet Spot High End? Low End? Mid Range? Hell, they sell is at Wal Mart, right?) or even serial numbered cards because of the cost. So: I'd never seen this card or one like it before and have/had no idea of it's value. First: that's not a bat chip. It's a 1/2 inch thick piece of bat embedded in a card that's more like a shadow box. Pretty awesome, and I had no idea what I was getting.
Then this CC jersey:
CC jerseys are always good, CC jerseys with Derek Jeter on them....I just don't know.
And most importantly, as a throw in for the person who tolerates my collection (and has yet to see my recent ebay purchase come up on the credit card bill):
It's the smile himself, Mr. Carlos Peña. It was immediately one of the compa's favorite cards and it's her first minor league CP. Thanks for throwing that in, Wicked, and for the epic trade in general.
Have a good one everybody and goodnight Pumpsie Green, wherever you are!
