Its always fun when a non blogger stumbles upon BWTP. Some of these people have turned into my favorite trade partners. One such person is Peter who goes by @Pinstripedcards on Twitter. According to my blog records Peter and I first swapped cards in 2014. Now that I'm on Twitter it is even easier to communicate, so I'm guessing the trading will pick up now.
Peter passed word along that this shipment came courtesy of his daughter who is a big time Yankees collector as well. It was a bubble mailer stuffed full of Pirate goodness. Let's check out a few of my favorites.
Signing Heredia was a big deal for the Pirates. He was their biggest international signing ever. The fact that he was released in November never making it past AA makes him one of the biggest busts in Pirates history.
I've always loved Bowman Platinum. Obviously people love Chrome, but I think the Platinum cards were just as nice.
