Gavin and I only trade a few times a year, but we swing for the fences when we do finally pull the trigger. I always enjoy finding something unique for his collection as he has a ton of interests which makes the possibilities endless. He must have been ready for me this time around as I received a return package just a few days after my package had arrived.
Obviously when I think stud professional athlete Mike LaValliere is near the top of the list. Just look at him! The guy is a legend.
I believe Wilson had been the longest tenured Pirate in the last 20 years until Cutch tied it last season. Always one of my favorite Buccos to collect.
Up next is a bunch of high end base and refractor goodness. Gavin must have hit the refractor gold mine at a show.
Another aspect of the trade that was really exciting was that Gavin found a bunch of Jerry West cards for me. West is WVU's most famous athlete and an NBA legend. Always super excited to get some new cards of the logo.
Thanks so much for the cards Gavin. Always enjoy our swaps. Hopefully I can hit you back sooner than later. The Padres system is getting pretty deep so I'm sure I can find some Bowman cards for you at some point.
Thanks for reading.
