Trade With $30 a week habit: David Wright Says THIS Is What A Real Game Used Jersey Relic Looks Like

Robert from $30 a week habit and I have traded once before, and completed our second trade shortly after the first was in the books. Hell, I had yet to post my end of the first deal when he posted a card I just had to have. An Adam Lind auto later and it's mine, all mine!

That is in fact a dirty swatch you see before you. My scan can't even come close to showing just how awesome this Heritage Clubhouse Collection Relic is. I have never owned a game-used relic quite like this before now, and I'm extremely excited Robert was willing to part with it and send it my way.

I've long been a fan of Wright's, and this is definitely one of the cooler cards of his I have, and for that matter, one of the most ridiculously awesome cards I own period. It pairs nicely with the other Wright 2011 Heritage Clubhouse Collection Relic I have, which I picked up in a trade with Johnny from Cards From The Quarry some time ago.

I suppose a clean white swatch would make for the trifecta. Unless, of course, there's a gray or blue swatch out there. Or some other color.

There probably is.

Awesome! Is it pine tar or dirt?

Sweet cards. I'm jealous

TLC...it's dirt, the scan doesn't pickup how brown the bottom corner really is...I'm glad it found a home with someone who really appreciates it. Thanks again for the trade Greg..

A.J.- Robert is correct. And it is way more awesome in person. I mean, the scan's not bad, but it's hard to pick up just how crazy insane the dirt is!

Adam- Thanks fellow Wright collector!

Robert- Thanks again, and I'm happy I could send the Lind to someone who appreciates it more than I would have!

Duuude, jealous. haha That's awesome, I've never gotten a jersey with dirt on it before!

Haha, thanks Joe! It's really quite weird to actually see a truly game-used swatch. I just stared at it for a while and gently rubbed the dirt.
