I won't lie to you : today is a big day at Papoy headquarters.
We've all seen that card, we know how iconic it is, and there's even somebody out there (I won't name names or point any fingers) that has every graded copy possible, from 1 to 10.
The semi-serious and fully-broke at the time Griffey collector that I was 22 years ago could only dream of having it in his collection one day. But two things have changed since :
- Now I have way more money (well, way more than 0, that is)
- Now I have the blogosphere (much better than money (well ok, maybe not, but you know what I mean))
That card was sent to Matt during the infamous war with JBF (known as World Blog War I), and I suppose I played the role of vulture (or just the role of France, come to think of it) and just grabbed what I wanted and called myself a winner.
And now, it's mine.
Because you see, Matt sent me an absolutely amazing trade package today. I'll be showing the contents as soon as I have a moment, but right now, I wanted to share my happiness.
Yeah, I'm dancing and doing cartwheels in the grass. I'm that happy.
Now, I just need for someone to send Matt a 52 Mantle, and I'll be all set.
