I've noticed from the pictures that he puts on his blog is that it always seems to be a nice day there at "The Platter". The "Pop-Up" is jealous. We had downpouring rain again last night, although the sun is peeking out now. Everything is in drying mode again, so there is a smidgen of a swamp smell because of the humidity and everything being so soaked.
So enough about the weather and onto some cards.
For the relatively low price of a couple of stacks of Dodgers, I received all sorts of set needs.
Lots of 2012 Gypsy Queen and other Topps base set needs.
I'm showing this Bronson Arroyo card because I may be the only blogger that also owns this:
His CD. It actually isn't bad.
I may do a post about it in the future. You have been forewarned.
Speigel also sent a bunch of Red Sox, and here are a few.
2010 Topps National Chicle David "Famous as F**k" Ortiz
A couple of prospects, Ronald Bermudez (who I have heard of)...
...and Raul Alcantara (who I haven't).
2011 Bowman Platinum Jon Lester
2013 Topps Wal-Mart Parallel Daniel Nava (who has been quite a surprise this year)...
...and speaking of surprises, Jose Iglesias.
It'll be interesting to see if they send him back down when Middlebrooks comes back or dump Ciriaco instead.
8 - 0 Clay Buchholz (and winning 7 - 2 as I'm typing this).
1992 Donruss Triple Play Roger Clemens. I attempted to collect this set but didn't get very far.
And finally, my twin brother. Don't know what I'm talking about? You can read about it here.
A great selection of cards from "The Platter". Here's to trading again in the future!
