Hope everyone had fun with the Secret Santa this year. I have a few tweaks in mind for next year, but for the most part it looked like it went pretty well.
When I made the initial call for participants we ended up with 35. Since it was an odd number I decided to take last name myself which happened to be my pal Dion. While not being much of a secret, Dion and I were happy to swap some cards because it had been way too long since our last trade. I always enjoy trading with Dion because he collects all things autographs. He is the easiest person in the world to shop for!
Right before Christmas I received my package from Dion. It was a huge envelope filled with Pirate cards in 9 pocket pages and one beautiful 8x10
The card variety Dion sent was outstanding.
The Steve Pearce auto is cool. I'm so happy he ended up getting a nice career. He had so much talent, but just couldn't stay healthy with the Pirates. Cool to see him get a two year deal with the Blue Jays.
Thanks for participating in the Secret Santa Dion and big thanks for all the great cards. That Dick Groat picture is fantastic.
Thanks for reading.
