Now for blog business.
Brian from HSCA is one of my favorite trade partners. He is always hooking me with cards he finds at his area card shows. Thankfully since he collects the Twins I was able to hit him back several times as I don't trade with any other Twins collectors. This time around Brian killed it with his return package. It was a two envelope Pirate/WVU monster package.
One thing that made this trade so awesome is that Brian really researched guys from West Virginia. What makes this card extra special is that Jim Fridley is from the same small town in as me, Philippi West Virginia. With a population of only 3500, well known athletes are few are far between. Little did Brian know he hit this one out of the park.
Now the Pirate portion of the program.
You really outdid yourself with this one Brian. It was a blast looking through these. That Fridley card really made me smile. I remember my grandfather telling me stories about him. Looking forward to our next deal!
Thanks for reading.
