Greg from the world famous blog, Night Owl, and I have made another trade. We have made several trades over the months. I always know that I am going to get a solid, generous trade with Night Owl. I am also glad that he writes an awesome blog and is a Dodger fan.
Night Owl left a note in the bubble mailer that mentioned that "Uribe better start hitting or I'm going to start to think he's a spy." This may sound odd to some of you but I know full well what Night Owl is talking about. Whenever a player comes from the Giants to the Dodgers and is unsuccessful, Dodger fans start to think he may be a spy sent here to sabotage the team. My buddy and I were at a Dodgers game against the Braves and we were talking about the same thing. What if Juan Uribe signed with the Dodgers just to make us a worse team?
Kuo is currently on a rehab assignment and should be back soon. When he returns, I hope he may get a chance to close some games.
This Pinnacle set is awesome. Great photography and nice glossy card stock. The 90s had great variety of sets. Probably too many sets back then and some have been overlooked due to the market getting flooded with cardboard. The overflow of sets is what made me take a break from the hobby. Now we are at the opposite extreme. We only have one company to choose from while buying packs. As a collector, this will give me time to go back in years and get some cards that I may have missed out on.
Thanks for the trade Night Owl. You are always welcome at the Platter.
