Anyway, Jason over at Clear Cut Cards made a post a couple weeks back about his Mets team set needs for Chicle, so because I recently busted a box of that stuff, I had one of the cards he needed. So after so negotiations, I ended up sending a Jason Bay Chicle and 10 other 2010 Mets cards. In return, I got rookies of two no name Astros and, the one I wanted most.
This is a rookie of awesome fielder Edwin Maysonet. He made it up with the Astros last year to play some infield as a backup. I was extremely impressed with what I saw. Sadly, my least favorite team the Brewers picked him up in the offseason. I'm still excited to have a card of him from his days with the Astros. Thanks for the trade Jason, and if any of you would like to trade with me, email me. Thanks!

For football, the correct answer was the Vikings. Being as no one guessed them, the prize goes to the second most cards, which was the 49ers. Don guessed that, so Don, send me your address and tell me what prize you want. Now for hockey. The winner with the most cards was the Penguins, correctly guessed by Dawgbones! Dawgbones, I have your address from our recent trade, but let me know what prize you want. Congrats to the winners!

But then, as I started to pass that card aside, I noticed that the game used was the next card. I also noticed it was one full card. A two card pack. The Beltran was slid aside to reveal...
The best card I've ever pulled. A Hanley Ramirez multicolor patch 20/25! I was ecstatic! This is my first patch. and the lowest numbered card I've ever pulled out of a pack. So the question is....
What's the best card you pulled in 2010? Let me know!

A 2001 Topps Ivan Rodriguez. Why does everyone have this card and insist on trying to trade it for 1960's vintage? It isn't going to happen. Does anyone know why everyone has this card? Tomorrow I'll post showing my Christmas loot, and it includes the best hit of my year!
Who I collect: I am a huge collector of Hunter Pence, Michael Bourn, JR Towles, Carlos Lee, and Nick Markakis, along with any Astros. I also have side collections of Joe Mauer, Evan Longoria, Derek Jeter, BJ Upton, and Ian Desmond. I also collect cards featuring players signing autographs in the photo, Celebrating, and players in odd places.
What I enjoy: I enjoy trading and meeting new people through blogging.
What I enjoy outside of sports: I love music. I play the guitar, and my favorite band is the Beatles. I also enjoy swimming, and playing video games.
If you want to trade, be on my blogroll, or just want to talk email me! I have tons of things for trade, hopefully I will post them later.
