Trade With Cardboard Catastrophes: Carlos Santana, Short-Printed, and Maury Wills, Deckle Edged.

I completed my second trade with Jeff from Cardboard Catastrophes. Jeff let me know he had a card of Carlos Santana I might be interested in, and sent it along without even questioning what I had to send in return. It's taken me forever to get to this post, so my apologies to Jeff on that front.

Numbered 16/50, it's a sweet parallel of some sort from 2009 TriStar Obak of the former Dodgers' catching prospect. Scouts were raving, but apparently Ned Colletti was not. #CollettiFail: let's get it trending, people.

A scan of the front, just to be as thorough as I can be. Carlos' sweet swing is on display. Jeff also tossed in a pair of extras, my favorite of which is this:

My first card from the 1969 Topps Deckle Edge set, and it features Maury Wills, whom I had the pleasure of meeting once upon a time.

Thanks Jeff! I hope to find something to your liking to send your way soon.
