The Stack of Mail That Greeted Me Home - Part 2

I did some trading for some signed cards. They came.

I also like signed Angels cards, and most of these Angels are guys that I've had a hard time getting to sign.

First up, Zach of Autographed Cards (an awesome autographed card blog by-the-way) posted this 2006 Fleer Tradition Tim Hamulack card:

Well, I'm collecting this set, autographed, so I inquired about the card. Zach said it was available so we set up a trade.

His next post was of a signed 2006 Fleer Tradition Ryan Shealy card that I also needed. But alas, that one was unavailable. Zach must have felt bad for me because when I received the Hamulack card he also included an unsigned Bowman Mark Trumbo gold card, and this:

Sweet! Thank you for being so thoughtful Zach.

Francis aka frosejr on sportscollectors.net had a bunch of autographed Heritage cards for sale. A bunch that I needed too. And at 2-bucks a card I couldn't pass these up.

Three times I've tried to get that Jarrod Washburn card signed through the mail only to have them gone forever. I tried getting him when he came to the stadium too, but never could get him to come over. Now I finally got him. Watch, all three I sent will show up in the mail this year now.

Also on sportscollectors.net I was contacted by Andy who had interest in a signed Ryan Sweeney card I had on my trade list. We finally worked out a deal that got me this Willie McGinest Patriots card.

Look for Willie to be an Autographed Patriots Card of the Month in the future.

  1. I'm always happy to help out. Thanks for the trade. Let me know if there are any royals signatures that you need from the '83 Topps set. I could probably part with a Dennis Leonard, a John Wathan record breaker, and a John Mayberry (though he is a Yankee on that card).
