I might have the chutzpah to call out dudes who I feel owe me cards, but I could never be a debt collector. That's gotta be a rough line of work, as I'm sure Chris the Collector would tell you.
Chris and I recently swung a trade centered on whipping up some quick customs for him. He shot me back a nice bunch of cards for my PCs.
Here's a sharp 1st Bowman refractor for my George Springer collection.
A couple old-timer autos. Gotta admit the name Curt Simmons didn't ring a bell for me, but he had a long, distinguished career on the mound, stretching from 1947 to 1967, and was a 3-time All-Star and a WS champ with the '64 Cardinals (as this Topps 65th Anniversary Archives card seems to give a nod to). Chris suggested I might work some custom magic on the Bobby Doerr auto, seeing as the card is a bit creased a couple places in the upper left. Maybe I will someday, but I like it enough as it is.
Happy to add another hit to my Giancarlo PC.
A nice selection of big names from the past.
And some modern stuff too.
Big thanks, Chris!
My boss bought me ice cream today and surprised me with a Padres helmet bowl! How cool. I remember having these as a kid in the 80s. Love it. Thanks, Boss!
