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.
VICTORIOUS! I need one too, lol. Come to think of it I need 2 copies, lol, now crying.... Kevin, just curious, have the Andruws made it to you yet?ReplyDelete
Congrats. Great cardReplyDelete
and it's all thanks to you !Delete
Congrats, Kevin! I've always wanted one of those.ReplyDelete
I'm surprise you don't have one in your collection ! Though they don't show up in dime boxes too often, I supposeDelete
I'm just glad I remembered to send you that card. You should have had it last month but I was a forgetful mess.ReplyDelete
It's ok, the stars were aligned this time, everything was perfectDelete
Congratulations, sir! It's a real gem.ReplyDelete
super nice Junior rc! I used to have several but am ashamed to say I sold them back in 2001/2002. I will probably pick one up now that it's affordable.ReplyDelete
