Wes (aka JBF/Willinghammer Rising) really needs no introduction. If you read my drivel on semi regular basis you know that Wes and I like to trade everything under the sun. What started out as a normal blind trade would soon evolve into sending bats, jerseys, books, baseballs and action figures. I could start a side blog just to document our back and forth trading.
This year Wes narrowed his collecting habits so I have had to anticipate his attacks and shop ahead. Preparation is key to trading with Wes. The man lurks than pounces when you least expect. I vowed to at least always have a couple cards on hand when that unexpected Priority Mail box hits my doorstep.
Wes went the throwback route with his most recent trade by making it strictly cardboard. For this post I thought I would just share some cards featuring WVU guys. I have plenty for a Pirates post and a Steelers/Pens.
With all that being said professional success plays no part on whether I collect a player. I want every WVU alum to have a nice professional career, but seeing them in college is why I collect. Wes sent me a nice gold Topps Chrome relic. These are tough pulls.
Can't go wrong with Triple Threads relics. They are always unique.
I can't thank you enough Wes. You cease to amaze me my friend.
Thanks for reading!
