So I posted exactly zero new posts last week, but I do have a good reason. I was in Wichita Kansas doing some training for my real job. It was my first time ever in Kansas, and all things considered it was not as bad as I thought it might be. I wish I would have written a few posts, but I simply did not have time. Getting home at 11:39 on a Friday after a week of working in Kansas is usually a pretty lousy ending to a week, but this homecoming was made a little better by a package from THE TROLL!!!! If you have never been to THE COLLECTIVE TROLL blog, do yourself a favor and check it out. Marck is a huge baseball fan and an excellent writer. He posts really great interviews, and writes an excellent blog. He is also a great trader! I am going to do this trade in two post because he sent so much. Here is the first part of what I will call the MOTHER LOAD!!!
A few weeks ago, I posted a link to my 1969 Topps want list. Troll took the time to check it out and he delivered.
ROOKIE STARS AND STRIKE OUT LEADERS......oh my!
A WORLD SERIES TRIPLE!
A TOTAL OF SEVEN FROM THE AMERICAN LEAGUE!
AND SIX MORE FROM THE NATIONAL! And since you asked, "Yes that is a DOC ELLIS rookie card!"
Thank you very much Troll, I will post the other amazing cards you sent in the second game of this double header.
