Got an email not too long ago from Marcus at the All the way to the backstop blog asking for one of the Purple Card Eaters that I had posted. That and a couple of Padres were sent to the heart of Texas, and in return i was PWE'd with a handful of goodness that I was able to check off of my lists.
Hence, Check Marcus....(it gets harder and harder to come up with this stuff folks...)
Blue Jays that I need? Check
The Wardo on the left is actually a 1987 Topps Tiffany, the first that I have for that year. The Cory Snyder is a '91 Score Traded, again a first for that particular year. I like the reddish border, I actually thought when I first opened the envelope that it was going to be a Target parallel. Still, good enough!!
70's vintage? Check
To wrest a 1970 Topps card of a Padres player from a Padres collector, I must be living right. Or it must be a dupe. No matter, it's one more towards the '70 set, which of course is more than welcome here.
Serial Numbered Insanity? Check.
Another Padre! I had to check, and yes the Will Venable is the first member of the 2013 Topps flagship set to become part of the insanity. For those who are counting, these two cards bring the total up to 818 cards towards the 1500 card goal.
Three check marks. 100% on that test! Thank you Marcus for the trade, much appreciated!!
Thanks for reading, Robert
