Last week I was feeling pretty good about myself after hitting Wes with a bunch of autos and relics as part of our ongoing trade battle. It is always exciting to find a card that fits someones collection perfectly.
Well, a few days later I received an email from Wes saying that he is pretty excited about something he sent me. This is coming from a guy who sent me a game used bat, so I had to expect anything. On Friday a big box arrived.
I'll let the pictures do most of the talking.
First a note from Mr. Jaybarker.....
Now the graded portion of the trade package.
Probably thinking holy crap that was a ton of stuff.....not done yet.
This is a game used jersey of former All Star reliever Evan Meek. I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw this in the box.
How am I supposed to respond to this? Wes has totally killed my trade momentum. I could duck and hide, but since he is promising 7 spoils of war I might as well go down with a fight. The fight must go on
I need a montage.
wow crazy stuff!ReplyDelete
He is a bottomless pit of sports cards and memorabilia.Delete
Holy cow! How do you top a game used jersey? I was completely wowed at the Clemente relic. I feel like one of those people sitting on the sidelines during the civil war watching the battles - this is super entertaining. Can't wait to see what happens next.ReplyDelete
I can't top him unless I call Chipper Jones to go visit his house.Delete
If you fall, then Skynet will have won and we're all doomed.ReplyDelete
Which is to say that you're doomed in particular. Good luck. - Captain RexDelete
Wes is the card Terminator. His one mission is to drown me in Pirates stuff.Delete
Just crazy. Awesome, and crazy.ReplyDelete
It is awesomely crazy!Delete
Simply amazing! What a battle!ReplyDelete
It is a pretty one sided fight. He is just toying with me.Delete
Matt, you owe me a new keyboard. I just drooled all over mine. That Meek jersey is a thing of beauty that would make any McDonald's employee jealous.ReplyDelete
Seriously though, those red jerseys are damn near impossible to come across.
I have a friend in town that chases jerseys and he told me the same thing about the red vests. He is the same one that is chasing the "turn up the clock" jerseys.Delete
I like that is Evan Meek too. All Star!!!
Wow - a jersey! Amazing...ReplyDelete
I need your address, too! Don't expect clothes...

Couple more trades with Wes and I'll be outfitted for a game.Delete
this back and forth is pretty much the most incredible thing ever.ReplyDelete
I agree. When the blogosphere first heard there was going to be a trade battle many proclaimed it would be an epic battle. It's certainly living up to the hype.Delete
I only had cards in my arsenal. Wes brought out weapons of mass destruction.Delete
Wes makes a mockery of the Geneva conventionReplyDelete
hahaha. It wouldn't matter if I put up a white flag.Delete
Matt...we need to talk. I know you're trying to go toe to toe, and I respect that, but guess what? This is a war you just cannot win. JBF cannot be stopped.ReplyDelete
At least he announced an ending in his threatening note. I'm going to have to buy a storage unit for all the stuff he sends me.Delete
Someone should get that guy checked out.ReplyDelete
That's just insane.Now go put that Pirates Jersey In a frame ,pull out a white(or black and yellow If you prefer) flag and start waving It ;)ReplyDelete
Wes doesn't care about rules of war. The barrage will continue until all 7 spoils hit my mailbox.Delete
I may have a few surprised up my sleeve too.....Delete
