New Blog, Great Name, Great New Trading Partner

A few weeks ago, a new reader made a comment on one of my posts. I sent him a message and the next thing I knew, he was starting a blog! Jeff from Wish They Still Came With Bubble Gum seemed like a great guy, and I LOVE that blog name! We messaged back and forth a few times and before long there was a bubble mailer waiting for me in the mailbox.

These 2015 Bowman singles are what got the ball rolling. The Cobb is /499 and the Bernie is an awesome RC Flashback refractor. The Rodon had my interest since I am an NC State grad and this is only my second Matt Andriese card(the first being a team set issue). The real treasure here will hopefully be the Refsnyder. With any luck at all, I'll have it signed by the end of this week. He's currently on the Scranton Railriders roster and they happen to roll into town to face my hometown Bulls for 4 games starting on Thursday.

Jeff didn't stop there. He sent me seven more Topps cards for my various 2015 set needs. True, only six are shown, but he also included the base Mike Trout card which was the last 'big' card I needed for the set and brings me down to only two cards left until completion. Just two more!!!

A few GQ Yankee legends, a few OD Nats, and a new Jorge rounded out what is hopefully our first of many trades! Thanks Jeff! I'm sorry that it was a little slow going for me to get to the post office, but I can say that your return package is on its way and I hope that you enjoy what I sent your way!

  1. Sucks about Cobb having TJ.. glad you enjoyed the package. I have some more Bowman to send you soon. Pulled another Rodon out of my last blaster and he had a awesome start for my fantasy team on Saturday. Alex Wood is from NC too but i'm not sure which town.
