Oh, how could I have waited so long to post this trade? Last month I ran into a new blog (to me at least) in Off Hiatus Baseball Cards. The proprietor Tony is a huge Brewers fan, as you can tell from his blog's wonderfully dramatic nameplate and background (makes my blue and orange motif seem understated by comparison). He also is very eager to trade and posts trade bait on a weekly basis. I just happened upon one of these posts when this beauty appeared...
I immediately commented and emailed him that this card must be mine. Must. Must. Must. Turns out I was just ahead of someone else that had to have it too - timing in life is everything. Tony promised I could have the card and we worked out the details. I put together what I thought, and luckily what Tony also thought, was a wonderful Brewers-and-Gary-Carter laden package. The low numbered Black Refractor Matt Harvey Heritage card was mine. His smiley-smirking visage will see me through until he recovers from his surgery.
Tony also threw in some random Mets cards, my favorite kind of Mets cards:
That first "card" with the logo is actually a tattoo. I might put it on my face Mike Tyson style next time I go to a Mets game in person. Those Heritage cards on the bottom were from my wantlist and completed my (base) team set for the year. Someone reads my want lists...yay!
Tony also included a little note, like I needed to identify who sent me that awesome shiny Harvey card.
Oh, believe me, I will enjoy these cards. And since you are a Gary Carter fan, I have a feeling we will be doing it again.
