A Highly Subjective Perspective

I almost don't know what to do with myself. It is Friday night, I'm home and I get to mess around with some cards. It is the little things in life, right!

Brian of HSCA fame is one of my frequent and favorite trade partners. Our normal schedule is to line up our trades with our box breaks, but he went the extra step to send out all the supertraders a pwe. What makes Brian such a good trader is that he really puts the extra thought into a trade package.

The Perspective cards are one of the best things to come out of 2016 Topps. Robert hooked me up with the Polanco just the other day and now Brian took care of the Kang. I believe only Cutch is left for the Buccos in the set. Man, I really dig this card. Jung Ho was a huge surprise last year for the Buccos and quickly became a fan favorite.
 I've been going to WVU games most of my life and have a ton of great memories. The thing I remember most about Kay-Jay Harris was him torching East Carolina for over 300 yards rushing. Always fun when a card can jog a memory.
 This is really cool because I hardly have any vintage Steelers. I didn't know anything about McClairen so I had to look him up. His pro career was fairly non descript, but he long stretches of coaching Bethune Cookman's football and basketball teams.
 Topps Gallery was very fancy pants when it first came out. I don't think I have this Clemente in my collection so it was awesome for Brian to send it my way. Very cool card.
 Tavon Austin and Bruce Irvin are the most notable active WVU players in the NFL right now. Hopefully Kevin White can join the mix next year as his rookie year was lost due to injury.
 I say it everytime, but vintage hockey is so cool!


Paul Big Poison Waner sporting the awesome old school flip glasses. I really hope that Jeff Gyorko does well, but I hate the fact he is on the Cardinals. Man, those bubble bee throwbacks are something.....

This was a great surprise Brian. So many great cards that hit all my collections. The good thing is I have two cards that I'm really excited to send your way.  Once I take my turn busting some boxes I'll be hitting you back.

Thanks for reading!

    1. I remember being in awe of Gallery when it came out. I believe it was my freshman year of college.

  4. Topps Gallery is just so classy! I found a vendor at the last card show that had a big case of college guys, I might have a steady supplier of WVU guys for ya now...

    1. That is awesome! Every once in awhile I'll find nice WVU lots on eBay. The crazy thing is guys like Pat White still sell pretty well.
