Anyway, fast forward (or rewind since this is a future post) to 4/20ish. I get a message on Blowout alerting me to a "surprise" that he has for me. It's not a new need, but rather an upgrade, but I'll enjoy it. And he just found it. So...suspense...what could it be?
I knew it couldn't be the eye, as it's one of his favorite all time sets and one of his favorite all time cards. But the way he said upgrade, I just KNEW this card had to have some sort of a sweet patch. Yet I was clueless as to what it could be!
Turns out he found ANOTHER Seahawks eye in that /75 print run that popped up on Ebay, and he purchased it immediately knowing I would love it to surprise me. How freaking sweet is that? And impressive...I generally catch about everything new Seneca on Ebay within the hour - I mean the 4th plate I picked up was purchased and paid for within 11 minutes of being posted online. So kudos to roadrunner for beating me to the Ebay chase.
But especially kudos to the card. Like the logo above, this Seahawk is flipped - so usually you see the Seahawk facing right, but my patch faces left. So it'd be on Seneca's left sleeve. It looks like this:
So I can now finally say I've arrived as a Seneca collector. I've got a three color patch, a logo patch, and that illustrious Seahawks eye all from one bubble mailer. And it's all thanks to the great 0264 roadrunner. Thanks so much man, my collection wouldn't be the same without you!
