An Absolutely Killer Trade Package

 Oh man. Matthew Scott from Bob Walk the Plank has outdone himself. His style is to send a small package with all hits. This package packed quite the punch!
Sorry for the blurriness of this photo, but it showed off the shiny foil best. Johan is in theory still active, rehabbing with the Toronto Blue Jays.

The Rat! Fan Favorites is such a good series, Topps should do that some more. Kennys Vargas! He mashed a walk-off homer the other day, but he's still having a tough sophomore season... hoping for him to snap out of his slump soon.
". . . and we'll see you tomorrow night!"

The hits just keep on coming! It's doesn't specify which game the bat was from, so I am just going to pretend this relic is from the bat that actually hit the game 6 homer (shh, don't spoil it for me!).

Now, the last card in the package was the biggest hit of all.

Harmon had a great signature, I'm very pleased to have my very first on card auto from Mr. Killebrew.

I'll be hunting for a great deal on a Clemente Auto to return the favor for you, Matthew, but in the mean time there is a package on the way with a card I pulled from last year's Archives you might enjoy.



  1. Wow, Killer does have a great signature. I'd put it right up there with one of my Cub favorites: The Hawk.

    That was another great package from Bob Walk The Plank!

    1. yeah, Dawson's signature is fantastic!
      The story goes in Twins Territory that Harmon would take players aside in his later years and try to impress upon them the importance of signing legibly - the results can be seen in Michael Cuddyer's signature in particular, as well as guys like Justin Morneau and Torii Hunter.

    2. That's really cool from killer, you can tell your boy Kennys missed that lesson.

      Matt packs a punch

    3. Sadly, yes, Kennys' signature takes more, uh, artistic license. It's consistent, at least.

  2. I was excited when I found the Killebrew for a good deal. I'm glad you enjoyed everything.

  3. Wow ! I don't even know which one I like best, they're all so awesome !

    1. yes, pretty much impossible to choose a favorite, Killer is of course a milestone, but they are all great additions!
