A little awhile ago I reached out to Daniel over at It's Like Having My Own Cardshop about a possible trade of some Diamondbacks cards I pulled from some breaks I did. Of course he was interested in the cards being they were a mini printing plate of Brandon Webb and 2 autos of Brandon McCarthy along with some other cards I happened to have. He emailed me back saying to give him some time to find something he could offer in return and he reached out with what you will see below which I was thrilled to receive. I didn't have either of these cards nor did I ever look to see if I could obtain either of them, but was glad to receive them and add them to my collection.
The first card here is a 2002 Topps Pristine David Wright Rookie Card which is absolutely beautiful and the picture just doesn't do it enough of justice. This is the first rookie card I've owned of Mr. Wright and hopefully he heals up and this season was just a hiccup in his stellar career.
The next card I received from Daniel was a 2009 Topps Unique Dual Distinction Relic of David Wright and Jose Reyes numbered /99. I'm just a little puzzled as to what jerseys these pieces are actually from. I haven't done any research nor have I looked at the back of the card to see if it says anything. I'm guessing either WBC or All Star. Let me know if you have any ideas where they are from.
He also sent a nice ginter mini of David Wright and nice Bobby Parnell Rookie Card.
Thanks again Daniel can't wait to our next trade.
Well this weekend is a big home game for the Mountaineers as #3 Oklahoma comes for a Saturday night visit to Mountaineer Field. Last time they visited it was a scorefest coming down to the last possession of 50-49 contest which saw the Sooners win. The past few years Mountaineer Field hasn't had quite the intimidating fans as it once had years ago so hopefully that will all change this weekend and the Mountaineers can pull the upset. It seems the fans are more into the team this year than the past few years. I'd like to see Mountaineer Field Saturday night all fired up like it was in 2003 when we beat good all #3 Virginia Tech 28-7 and in the second half they cHOKIES never crossed midfield. Lets hope for the same type of atmosphere and outcome of this game.
LETS GO MOUNTAINEERS!!!!
LETS GO METS and YA GOTTA BELIEVE
