How did you use your first blog post? First Facebook post? First AIM away message (what's up 2000)? Everyone has their own way of introducing themselves when they join something new, some people might start with a more formal hello while others just hit the ground running. Well in this situation, a guy used his post on Blowout to post in my Shyrone Stith thread, saying he had a /50 autograph I needed and wondering if I needed it. Was I interested? WAS I EVER!
We chatted back and forth a bit after coming to a price fairly quickly. I helped him learn some site stuff, helped him learn some Paypal stuff, shipping stuff...it was all very educational. Then he told me he'd throw in some Patriots for me and sent the goodies on my way! Can't complain about the transaction at all, and I'm very happy to be his first feedback.
But I'm even happier with the amazing auto:
So he said he has a bunch of boxes of turn of the century stuff (and a little more recent) sitting around and asked if I collected any teams, I told him sometimes Patriots since sometimes I'll grab Pats stuff on a whim since they're my true #1 team (sorry Brownies, I definitely love you too though). So he sent me a bunch of Pats cards, including a ton of Tom Bradys that will probably go to Dennis someday, and these five cards I particularly liked:
In the end I'm just happy to have cemented another guy's return to the hobby with his first Blowout transaction - and I'm especially happy with my new fancy Stith auto!
