Remember the now infamous Babe Ruth "bat" card I pulled from Tier One?
I strolled on down yesterday afternoon with the card and gave it to him to scan. Then he went on to show me this huge autograph collection he had just picked up a few days ago. Filled with good stuff too. Some Yankees that will do great (Jeter, Posada, Rivera), some rookies and stars (Verlander, Ryan Howard, Lincecum) and some other neat stuff.
I decided to pull some stuff out and see what he would want for them. He looked through what I grabbed and asked if I brought anything to trade (he loves to trade). I said no, unless he wanted the Ruth. He was very interested, so for the Ruth and a little cash, here is what I got:
On to the autos though. The Tulos make number 4 and 5 for me. Great to add a Markakis and Ethier to my budding young superstar auto collection. The Aaron Hill is my second (or third, I forget), Reed Johnson and Accardo make up the final two Jays autos.
Hey, if his customers want to take the relic at face value, then I'm all for it. It was the second Ruth I pulled in my collecting so I didn't mind letting it go for the goodness above.
