The Breakdown Abides
As a follow up to an earlier trade, I sent Gavin from Baseball Card Breakdown some of my duplicate Kirby Pucketts for his player collection, and he fired back with a great lineup of Twins, and of course tossed in this custom Great Dude of History. The Dude of course was featured in Minnesota filmmakers' Joel and Ethan Coen's "The Big Lebowski."
I've seen stranger things than this custom yearbook photo, but not many with as well-groomed a pushbroom as Mr. Clarke
On to the cards! Mauer dutifully covers up the uninspired Minnesota State Flag, which is just the state seal on a field of blue. The "Hometown" parallel is a great addition to Mauer Mountain.
Two new 2017 Doziers, including a shiny sepia Chrome refractor!
Gavin is a fine connoisseur of shiny cardboard and his mailer was jam packed with refractors and parallels.
These last four were also serial numbered, to boot! Thanks Gavin! Let's trade again soon.
