Trade: The Lost Collector

I've received some interesting things over the years in trades, but this has to be near the top of the list.

Yup, that is an inflatable parrot courtesy of The Lost Collector.  I'm not sure how he ended up with it, but my daughter thanks you.  She has been carrying it around everywhere. 

Of course AJ threw in some great cards. 

I really like this Rhoden auto.  He doesn't have much in way of certified autos so this is a nice addition. Extra bonus for pill box cap. 

Donruss Signatures is an all time great set.  How fun would it be to open a box! 

I really wish John Jaso was a little more productive.  Just imagine the marketing with him being a Pirate. The possibilities are endless.

Nice to see some Chris Stewart Pirates cards. One of 9000 former Yankee catchers to find a home in Pittsburgh. I often joke that it is just a matter of time before Gary Sanchez is a Pirate.

Thanks for the great cards AJ! The inflatable parrot was great.  Where in the heck did you get it?

Thanks for reading! I'm going to go back to being mad about Marte's suspension.


  1. You wouldn't believe me if I told you, so we'll leave it at that. Was hoping your daughter would enjoy it!

  2. Those are some rare finds, the Pirate parrot for sure but also... a Rhoden auto!? You dont see those every day.

    Maybe the Yanks will swap Sanchez for Starling Marte. They haven't had a PED user on the roster since A-rod retired. ;P

    But seriously, that's a real bummer that he got popped.

  3. hard to top the Parrot! Sorry about Marte. Hated hearing about it and thought about you immediately.
