Trades with dayf are usually a two-part deal: the first half sticks to a formula while the second half veers off on a wild, thrilling tangent. He traded me anything, and for the second year in a row, he did not disappoint.
2008 Topps U&H #UH226 Brian McCann Gold Foil Parallel
A large group of Brewers from the Pit of Despair Years: 1994 Pinnacle #473 Jesse Orosco, 1994 Leaf #351 Graeme Lloyd, 1993 Fleer #247 Ricky Bones, 1992 Upper Deck #498 Dale Sveum, 1991 Fleer Brewers Sticker, 1989 Donruss #632 Mike Young, 1994 Leaf #250 Alex Diaz, and 1996 Pinnacle #83 Jeff Cirillo
A Packer: 1976 Topps #379 Alvin Matthews
A Buck: 2002-03 Flair #45 Ray Allen
And the pièce de résistance, an AOL free trial CD featuring former Brewer Richie Sexson, along with Griffey, Pujols, Sosa, Biggio, and what looks be (and I might be showing my Pirates ignorance here) Brian Giles(?).
*The backs of the Leaf cards show the barrel beer that used to be in the outfield at County Stadium.
*The amount of hair that can be seen on the Matthews card. I was never too serious about collecting football cards, and this is now my oldest one.
*There ain't no way I'm putting this into my computer. I made too many trips to the Mac Store last year to take any chances. Heck, there could be a one-of-a-kind interactive program called "Robin Yount's Hitting Tips for Thirty-Year-Olds Who Haven't Played Organized Baseball Since Sixth Grade and Are Subsequently Guaranteed to Make a Big League Roster" and I'd think twice about accessing it.
*I've got enough of that Mike Young card already. Check this out.
Well, dayf lived up to his awesome trading reputation once again. Godspeed!
