So, a little ways back, during The Great Trade Bait Draft Of February 2011 (an idea I'm totally snaking very soon), a fella named Spiegel who didn't have a site yet, but does now asked me if I'd be up for putting together a trade. I tend to respond to these questions with "Yes", postage be damned! I sent Senor Spiegel a decent handful of stuff, including a bunch of Brauns he needed, and like more than a few of you have done, he sent me more than we'd agreed upon (You folks are crazy!). Here are a few of the highlights.
Here is what I promise will be the last scan of base 2010 Bowman Platinum I'll ever make you look at. It's the Strasburgular, and as you've heard every time someone's posted one of these, "it looks better in person". No, really. We can just lay here and hold each other. Anyway.
Pee Wee looks like he's making the "Arrrgh!" noise that the other Pee-wee makes.
(I just noticed that this is the third "pee wee" I have tagged. Weird.)
I'm not usually a big fan of '03 Topps, but I'll make an exception for Mr. Buehrle here!
Here we have a very silly card of Vladimir Guerrero. Those are always welcome.
And while we're celebrating, how bout we have Hendu give Harold Baines an elbow bump to wrap this up?
