The last month I have had a nice influx of new trade partners reaching out. To me nothing is more exciting about blogging than making new trade contacts.
Right around the time I posted my 2 year anniversary contest, a reader named Josh Bob commented and said he had some Buccos for me. A few days later I had a bubble mailer at my door. Blind trades are the best!
In some ways Gorzo did help the Pirates become relevant again when he was traded to the Cubs it netted Josh Harrison.
I was pumped to see this card in the envelope. I recently purchased some of the lower numbered patches and autos from a seller, but don't have any of the regular parallels. This makes a very nice addition to my Gorzo collection.
I enjoy finding cards of guys like Danny Neagle and Kevin Young. They came into the picture shortly after the Pirates early 90's success. Both would have long careers, but played on some really bad Pirate teams.
I remember buying a lot of Score Select as a kid. My local convenience store use to stock it pretty deep.
Thanks so much for reaching out Josh. I've got some cool A's cards to send your way. I'll let you know as soon as I get an envelope out.
Thanks for reading!
