I completed my third trade with Robert from $30 a week habit. You can read about the first here and the second here. In exchange for a Dion Phaneuf RC, a few Shawn Green Jays cards, and a handful of serial numbered cards for Robert's new and daunting set task (which comes with its own blog too), I received this nice Teemu Selanne jersey swatch.
Yes, there was in fact a time when Teemu was not a Duck. We tend to not speak about those times (except for 2003....2003 is acceptable).
The one huge attraction this relic has - other than it's of a future Hall of Famer, of whom I only have one or two hits - is that the jersey piece is colorful. Always a plus. Robert also knocked out a huge chunk of my remaining 2011 Ginter needs, which I'd scan, but when I say chunk, I mean a huge huge chunk. Thirty-seven base cards (four of 'em short-prints), one Ascent of Man, and six Hometown Heroes. My Ginter needs have been updated accordingly.
Thanks as always for another great trade Robert! Oh, and before I forget, I woke up to find this:
Thanks guys and gals!
