Nomos For Nothing

Wes is a very kind dude.  He runs the Jaybarkerfan's Junk blog.  Wes is also the dude that just sent me three Hideo Nomo jersey cards and even a game used pants card.  He did this just to be generous and helping out other bloggers build there collection.

I love this action that most bloggers take by just sending cards to someone in our community.  I haven't done this in awhile.  Since Wes was kind to me, now another blogger will get a surprise package.

I received this Hideo Nomo game used pants card just for being apart of the same club as Wes.  He sent me a Nomo game used pants card!

It is my duty to keep this generosity going.  It is actually our duty as a community to keep hooking each other up.  We can never lose that great duty of surprising somebody with awesome cards.

This card is a 2003 Ex Hideo Nomo game used jersey #ed/375.  This card is also die-cut which makes it stand out a little more.  This card looks to be pretty classy and probably came out of a high end box back in 2003.  I wouldn't know if 2003 Ex was a high end product.  My collecting hiatus took place in the early 2000s.

This card also says emerald on it.  Maybe that is the set name or a parallel color.  Emerald is a jewel so this card must be classy.

I kind of miss Skybox.  The Skybox brand is mostly known for basketball cards.  They made really cool looking cards in a flashy computer generated sort of way in the early 90s.  I wonder what type of base set Skybox may have come up with if it had a 2012 licence.

I miss some new creativity with an MLB licence for logos.

Anyways, please be on the lookout blog world, some random cards may be showing up for you from the Platter.  The generosity shall commence!

Thanks to Wes!

Yes. Let the hooking up flow free. This is my favorite part of the hobby without a doubt.

Very nice Nomos. I'm trying to build up a collection of Japanese players myself. I just got back into the hobby after a 18/19-year break. The last cards I remember chasing were the '95 SP RC and the '95 UC3. Got them now!
