What happens when the unloved are loved again? You get a great trade between Jason of Clyde's Stale Cards and me.
Jason is basically a Tuffy Rhodes supercollector, and he has a lot of cards from his days playing here in the NPB. I attacked some of his want list one day last fall and sent the cards his way (via another Jason - oops!) in return for some cards to be named later.
Jason took a bulldozer and scooped up a gigantic pile of oddballs and team issues, shoved them in a box, and sent them in my direction (with a stopover in California, of course). I got my latest care package from San Francisco a couple weeks ago, and I got to see what he sent.Sports Card Forum inventory manager is more comprehensive than Beckett's database. And he doesn't only research these cards, he also collects them. I'm not sure what the extent or goal of his collection is, but he's amassed a large amount of extras on the way. We start with a 1983 7-Eleven disc of a squinting Steve Sax. I remember getting these throughout the decade because I loved Slurpees. I still do, and whenever I find frozen Cokes or other similar drinks I tend to buy one.
Jason sent a whole bunch of cards, but I couldn't possibly show them all at once. Thank you so much, Jason! It was a baseball trip around the world looking through the pile you sent my way! I know I'll be sending more Tuffy cards your way soon.
