Last week, a simple comment left on a blog caused sort of a domino effect that resulted in two collectors smiling. Here's how it unfolded...
Step 1: I left a comment on one of It's like having my own Card Shop's posts.
Step 2: Baseball Dad over at All Tribe Baseball read the comment and emailed me. He generously offers to send me some oversized goodies for free.
Step 3: Nothing in life is free. So, I tell him I'll ship out some Cleveland Indians oddballs as compensation... and voila... a blind trade is created.
Step 4: Two content cardboard collectors. Click here if you want to see what I shipped.
And here's what he sent me:
A trio of 2003 Donruss Estrellas Posters...
Their matching cardboard counterparts...
And an unopened pack of 2003 Donruss Estrellas...
Well... it's not unopened anymore. Each pack contains 5 cards and a poster. And I just had to see which poster remained hidden in the pack. Here's what I pulled:
Albert Pujols! I'm definitely happy with this poster. He's starting to find his groove in LA... going 6 for 12 with 3 home runs in his last 3 games.
And if you're curious... here's the rest of the pack:
Francisco Rodriguez Insert
3 Former Yankees, a current Yankee, & a Carlos Lee
Thanks Baseball Dad for the very successful blind trade. I look forward to future transactions. Have a safe holiday weekend... and sayonara!
