Trade With Nomo's Sushi Platter: Chase Utley's Autograph Is Mine!

I completed my third trade with fellow Dodgers fan Michael, from Nomo's Sushi Platter. You can find the first one here, and the second one here. Spiegel and I were e-mailing, and he told me he pulled a really sweet, shortprinted auto from a box he busted. I congratulated him on the awesome pull, and he asked if I'd be interested in the card. I was, and though I had nothing to exchange for it at the time, Mike, the gentleman he is, said he'd set it aside for me.

I proceeded to work tirelessly to find something to swap for it. With some eBay fortune, I found two Kurt Suzuki autos to send Mike's way. I also included a couple of Kershaws he didn't have and a ton of other Dodgers. You can see the Suzukis here.

So, my prize for all of that work? Behold, a beautiful auto from former UCLA Bruin and Dodger draft pick Chase Utley, which instantly becomes the centerpiece of my modest Utley PC.

17/35

I don't curse much - if at all - anymore in my writing on this here blog. But shit. That is one AMAZING card. Damn. So beautiful.

This bad boy is headed straight for a magnetic or screwdown. Just as soon as I get one.

Spiegel also sent along the final two cards I needed from the Dodgers portion of 2009 Topps Unique, a set I absolutely love.



Also included was a new Kershaw, always a welcome sight.


And last but certainly not least, a handful of Jackies!


In a funny turn of events, I actually met Spiegel in person at last night's Dodgers game. Also in attendance was the great DodgerBobble. It was a pleasure chatting with you two gentlemen. Again, we should.

Thanks for another fantastic trade Spiegel, and the wonderfully awesome Utley signature!

Do you like contests? I thought so. Jaybarkerfan's Junk is holding one right now! Tell him I sent you.

Or don't.

But seriously.

Tell him it was me.

  2. Nice card. But everytime I see a Chutley card, I think of how he could've been a Dodger .. that makes me sad.
