Trading Greats with an Argyled Pinafore

Have you read this yet? (

If you don't know who I'm talking about, where have you been? Of course I mean Greg Z, Dodger fan and writer of Plaschke, Thy Sweater Is Argyle. I found a Russell Martin autograph a few weeks ago (has it really been that long) and we hashed out a trade. He sent along a collection of cards for the Awards collection, including who he hopes will be this year's NL MVP and Cy Young winners: Kemp and Kershaw.

 I didn't realize it until I put the Garvey on the scanner: it's a 60 Years of Topps card. The dual Torii cards are most welcome, because I never find his cards in the dime boxes - not sure why.

The centerpiece of the trade was this Tony Gwynn bat relic. It's a nicely-presented card, although it's obvious it was designed with the relic in mind.

As always, thank you Greg!
