Like many of us, he started a blog in hopes of interacting with collectors as well as finding trade partners. If you're looking for baseball and football autographs or memorabilia cards, then I encourage you to check out his trade bait. Even if you're not interested in trading, I highly recommend you heading over there to check out his blog.

Usually I'd save the best for last. But I was so stoked to receive this Yoenis Cespedes autograph, I wanted it to be the image everyone saw first. The Oakland A's aren't really known for their superstars. But if I had to pick a guy on their roster with the potential to be one, it would be him.
In addition to the autograph, Matt also threw in these Yoenis cards:
I absolutely love the 71T and Tall Boys minis. Next up, the boys on 'roids... The Bash Brothers:

And wrapping up the awesome Oakland A's "goodie bag", here are pair of inserts of another World Series MVP... Mr. October, himself:
Oh wait... I almost forgot. He also sent me my first Hisashi Iwakuma relic card for my Japanese PC:
Thanks Matt! That's one of the most generous "goodie bags" I've ever received.
Happy Wednesday and sayonara!
