So I've been accumulating trade bait for a while, and while some of it has been productive in getting me new stuff, a lot of it has...not been. It just sits and sits at my house like I'm sure many of your lower end cards do, and it does very little for me. So I recently decided to get on it and make this stuff move. Sent some stuff to COMC, worked a little harder on trades, sold some stuff, etc. And while this one is not really related to my core collections per say, it may be one of my favorite deals yet.
I sent out the remains of my old Tyronn Lue collection, some Celtics cards, a few Red Sox rookies, and some other stuff for three cards (two expected). They're pretty awesome. I'll show the Caddys first, beginning with the one I didn't expect:
That said, I still love Caddy, blame it on my littlest brother's childhood Buccaneers fandom along with Caddy being on a few of my fantasy teams back in the day. So I love getting his stuff, especially when it's a nice patch like the card of his I was expecting:
So those cards were cool. But this next card is FANTASTIC. I browsed the guy's Photobucket to see what I might like and when this popped up I was stunned by it's beauty/ridiculousness. I put it on a short list of stuff I liked and when he said I could grab it AND something else I was doubly stunned. Probably one of the few people in the world who find this card amazing...but I do. Anyways, without further adieu, I give you...REEBOK PATCH ANDREW WALTER:
In general though, this instantly becomes one of the best patches in my collection. Lots of people talk about key aspects of modern day cards - the superfractor, the NFL shield, that kind of thing. Well this is my first laundry tag, and I think it's amazing!
