I just got back from a quick trip down to Vegas to see my parents and when I came home... sitting on my dining room table was a stack of packages. Some were presents from friends & family... a few were bills... and I even had a package from Amazon (my Big Bang Theory Season 3 dvd set). There were also a couple of yellow padded envelopes too. One of those was a nice gift from my buddy G_Moses over at The Basketball Card Blog.
He mentioned earlier this month that he had a little something for me and I'd be lying if I told you I wasn't curious. Well... he hooked me up with a nice note and two PC items that (after scanned) went straight into my office on a shelf.
In the note, he refreshed my memory that he once followed one of my favorite teams: the San Diego Padres. During that time... he sent out a lot of TTM's and here are two of the ones he received:
I'm stoked, because Mr. Gonzalez was a fan favorite and the best hitter on the team since he joined the Padres 5 or 6 years ago. It's a bummer that they traded him to the Red Sox. His autograph in black sharpie really stands out and looks amazing on my baseball shelf.
The Kouzmanoff actually fits into two different PC's, because he's pictured in a Padres uniform... but he's currently on the Oakland A's (my other favorite baseball team). I'm a huge fan of retro sets and the matte surface on the Turkey Red rookie card of Kooz was an excellent choice.
Thanks again G for these wonderful and generous Christmas presents. More than that... thanks for the friendship. You're a stand up guy and I love reading your blog. I hope you and your family are enjoying the holiday season... and don't worry... I'll get you back one of these days.
As for everyone else... have a safe New Year's Eve... and I'll see y'all around.
