Frankie from My Life in the Sports Card Hobby posted awhile back about a great Joe Mauer (#'d to 10) card he pulled and was looking to trade. I was happy to do it, but I have to say I was a little intimidated!
Sure, Frankie is probably about half my age (I don't plan on doing the math on that), but as a collector he's light years ahead of me. Did ya see his post about meeting Mariano Rivera? Getting Mo to sign a pitching rubber? Goodness. That's just the tip of the iceberg, Frankie has a great collection going and his posts showcase some really nice autos and relics, etc etc.
I generally don't have a lot of stuff like that, so I put together what I could find to fit his PCs and sent over the shiniest things I could get my hands on.
Here's the return, starting with that fantastic Joe Mauer:
It's actually my first card numbered to 10 (I'm hoping to make the Clear Acetate Kennys Vargas 2015 Topps Series 1 my second, if I can ever find one...), so thanks very much for making that happen, Frankie!
In addtion to Joe, Frankie added some more cool Twins:
Can't go wrong with Harmon! Thanks again for trading with me Frankie, these are great!
