Me and Dennis, of the Too Many blogs, have a sweet deal going. I keep selling on COMC, I buy him up cool Michigan stuff there, and he finds me good PC stuff everywhere. We used to kind of guide each other a little towards certain purchases - hey buy this, hey watch this on Eba, etc., but over time there's been much more...spontaneity. Which is awesome. I'd say this trade is 40% planned, 60% random awesomeness he found. And that's a good thing.
I mean look at the Griffey relic he found:
He had doubles of these weird Griffey 8 x 10 portraits, so he sent me one. It's epicly huge, and hugely awesome:
He also sent me a few Choos:
I love the Supreme Green, but the shot on the Topps base card is so great. He totally made that catch and then threw out a runner at home. Clearly.
I got an awesome Billy Hamilton card. Can I get a REFRACTOR?
Dennis added a few cards of The Lizard Man (my nickname for him) to my collection, including an autograph where he used a very small portion of the available space:
Last for baseball, Beckett claims that Jose Lopez hasn't had a card since like 2011. Lies, since he has some Japanese cards, one of which Dennis grabbed me on Ebay:
Moving on to football - Dennis absolutely killed it with this Deion Branch auto, #'d 1/25:
He added another Deion Branch auto for good measure:
Dennis also sent my first Joique Bell auto:
Dennis also sent a few more Jarrett Brown autos:
And finally, we come to one of the most epic cards in the package - this autographed Mohamed Massaquoi manupatch /78:
I've never really had a guy who was in a manupatch set, so this is new to me. I hope to someday spell out whatever this set is supposed to say (I think his name) and show it off in excellent fashion.
Thanks Dennis for all the awesome stuff, as always! I look forward to our future trades, and will be shipping home a bunch more Michigan stuff on COMC to send your way!
