I love It when bloggers take the extra time to add little thank you notes to their trade packages.It's something I rarely do.Shame on me.The face card was totally unexpected but a welcomed addition.A Mets fan can never have too many Degroms In his/her collection.
Now this was the card I drooled a little bit over when catching a glimpse of It on N.O. blog.My first thoughts were - "Man, now I gotta go see If our local Wal Mart has any '15 Update stocked because I desperately need that Syndergaard!" My second thoughts were - "Man, now I gotta leave the house just to go see If our local Wal Mart has any '15 Update stocked because I desperately need that Syndergaard!" My third thoughts were "Fuck that,I'm not going anywhere I'll just Email Night Owl and see If we can work out a trade or something". Next thing you know-"BAM!"
The Boy Wonder ,Steven Matz!
I don't have alot of contemporary stuff,so anything from 2010 to 2013 Is pretty much non existent In my collection.Hence the appreciation of this awesome Panini Hometown Heroes Puig rc!
While I'm not crazy about the original Topps Rookie Cup design,I welcome any of Dee Gordon's baseball cards Into my collection .I hope to one day see him leading off for the NY Mets.
1988 Topps Jose Canseco!This was the card that started It all.1988 marked the beginning of my baseball card collecting ways.This was the card that lit the fuse.So anybody out there holding onto a surplus of this particular card,let me know!I will gladly take them off your hands.
Another card on my want list,this 89 Topps Jefferies Is a personal favorite of mine.It's just a great looking card and one I wouldn't mind having multiples of either.
A new Yadi!By far my favorite Catcher with Salvy Perez coming In 2nd.I'd love for Molina to come over and platoon with Darnaud at some point In his career.Could you imagine how much more dangerous Degrom ,Syndergaard and Harvey would be with this guy sitting behind the plate?!?
Night Owl must have read my catcher collection post as he threw In a couple of gems ,especially the Mayne.
WHEN I SAY ROOKIE,YOU SAY CUP-"ROOKIE!CUP!ROOKIE...."
Thanks again for the trade N.O.Now I don't feel as obligated to go out and get any Update ;)
