Tom is a constant help with my Pirates collection. About once a month I receive an envelope of various sizes full of good stuff. This particular envelope was small in size, but packed a punch. Overall this probably marks our 10,000th trade. Actually I'm not sure how many this makes, but we like to trade!
Do they call these something other than purple refractors. How about Purple Nurple parallels? Whatever they are called they are very shiny and quite appealing.
I'm not bitter....
Baseball is weird. They stop collisions at home plate but you can destroy a guy to break up a double play. In all seriousness I actually got tired of hearing the Pittsburgh media bitch and moan about this play. One thing I was happy about was that the Pirates didn't hit someone during this game. That could have gotten really nasty.
Thanks Tom for the great cards, especially the Kang's. I'm slowly accumulating some of his stuff now. His autos finally dipped in price some as he was featured in just about every set from June on. Maybe I'll buy one for myself for Christmas.
Thanks for reading!
