CLEMENTE!

It is nothing out of the ordinary for me to receive a package from France these days. My good pal Kevin usually hooks me up with great stuff to go along with our box break loot. This time around he gave me a heads up that a package would be coming from stateside, but that it was from him. He didn't tell me what it would be, but he said I would know it when I see it.

Boy was he right. If you want to get a Pirates fan attention this guy usually does it.......

Not everyday you get Clemente in a trade. 

Kevin is showing off now......

 A Clemente trifecta!!!!!!!!

Holy crap Kevin! You really outdid yourself by sending three Clemente's! I was so pumped seeing these three pop out of the bubble mailer. I think my personal favorite is the close up 65, but that batting leaders card has a nice cameo from Hank Aaron as well. It will be hard to equal the awesomeness of this package, but I will give it the old college try next time I ship out to France.  

Thanks for reading!

    1. Ha. I guess we've already been doing that for well over a year. It is a shadow war!

  2. I've wanted to get you a 65 for awhile now, but when I saw that listing for 3 Clementes that all looked in decent shape, I had to pounce ! And yeah, that ClementeAaron makes for a sweet combo. Thanks for the kind words !

    1. I really appreciate these. You know I'll give them good homes! The timing couldn't have been better though as I just found a pretty cool card for you.

  3. I'm not the biggest '65 Topps fan, but the Clemente from that year is great. It's just a great shot of him up close, and you really can see a lot of emotion in his face.

    1. Panini should just do something like this with one of their sets. All you would need to do is go hatless to get around the licensing.

  8. Awesome cards! I can't believe Topps recycled images as far back as 64 and 65 though. I thought they just recently became unoriginal. Hmph
