It has been a fun couple weeks at Bob Walk the Plank Headquarters. My mail box has been getting a workout as of late. When I first started receiving trade packages in the mail my wife was pretty confused. I think she just thought I was spending way too much on eBay. Now she is getting use to it and just tells me I got a bunch of packages from my friends. I think friends sums it up pretty well.
One such friend is Julie from A Cracked Bat. First off an apology to Julie. This post would have been up yesterday, but my daughter decided to projectile vomit. Baseball games have rain delays, blogging has vomit delays. She is doing much better today.
Julie hit me with three bags of Pirate goodness. As usual it was a well rounded package. Take a look...
If you look hard enough you can see the "90's" oozing right off this card. I actually think 2016 Topps is supposed to have some type of "laser" component for some of the inserts. Not sure if they are trying to tie it into this old set or if that is just some fancy new technology for card creation. Whatever the case all I know is this card is awesome!
I was glad to see the Soria card. The Pirates traded for him right before the deadline and he did a pretty good job.
Matrix parallel of Cutch! Man, I wish they would call them that.
That Murtaugh is awesome as well!
This was a fun one to sort. It had a little bit of everything. I think my next package I send your way will have more of an Astros theme to change things up.
Thanks for reading!
