2006 Bowman Heritage Brian Roberts mini
2005 Bowman Adam Loewen
I had big hopes for Adam Loewen. He was a highly-touted beast of a man, and left handed to boot. Pretty much everything you look for in a dominating major league starter. Well... after blowing his arm twice, and possibly even thrice, he is now an outfield prospect in the Blue Jays organization. Oh, what could have been.
1993 Pinnacle Eddie Murray "Now & Then"
This card helps us pinpoint the exact moment Eddie lost his badassedness. Naturally, it just so happens to coincide with him leaving Bmore for NY Have you ever seen Eddie smile in Baltimore? Have you ever seen anyone smile in Baltimore?
1996 Topps Stadium Club Jonathan Ogden "New Age"
This card is what Dock Ellis' no hitter looked like to Dock Ellis. This is the single coolest looking card I have ever seen. Jonathan Ogden RULES. Don't believe me, click HERE, watch THIS, then try to argue.
2006 Topps Finest Football Derrick Mason red refractor #'d /399
I'm only featuring this card because it's shiny, and because my boy D-Mase needs to come correct this Sunday. It's do or die for everyone, but in the end this fan is hoping it's the Patriots who end up dead.
Finally, here are a few of the Masterpieces black framed parallels that Justin sent over. This is what the trade was all about to begin with, and I most definitely appreciate the help. Without the support of the blogosphere, there's no way building this set would be a reality for me. You guys (and gals) rock!
Sorry to bore you to tears Thorzul, it's just that people keep sending me cards, and it only seems fair to give credit where credit is due. Perhaps I am arrogant, but it seems that people want to trade with me because they know I'll do a proper trade post, and talk about every card I love or hate. This blog was started mainly as a forum to find trade partners, and boy did I ever! Thanks for the cards Justin, and fear not, Tampa Bay really IS a wasteland, but it's a wasteland I wouldn't mind spending some time in right about now, especially with more snow in the forecast tonight.
