I actually had this post ready yesterday, but my brother and I opened a few too many heavy stouts while watching the WVU game. Friends don't let friends blog while inebriated. Glad WVU pulled out the win!
Julie is a frequent trade partner who always seems to find something unique for me. The first thing I saw when opening the envelope had me super pumped.
The Senior Professional League! I've seen these several times over the years on the blogs and always wanted some for myself. Thanks to Julie she hit me up with a ton of former Buccos. A lot of the late 70's Pirates played in this league.
Part of me loves this idea, but its not hard to see why the league folded after just 2 seasons. The novelty of seeing some of your old favorites wears off after a few games. At least it was immortalized through cardboard!
Julie also decided to drop the Heritage Pirates on me which is greatly appreciated. I liked this years set, but it seems like the Pirate checklists are going to be really small in the Topps releases this year. Doesn't really warrant going to pick up a box.
As usual you hit a homerun Julie. Thanks for thinking of me. I'll continue to scope out some unique cards for your collection.
Thanks for reading!
