Fellow card blogger Darkship, of the fine journal MidWest Cardboard, and I had been working on getting a trade going for a few weeks, but negotiations had come to a standstill. That's when he sent me a note saying his local card shop had a 2008 UD Baseball Heroes Luke Hochevar card on display.
To say that trade talks restarted is an understatement.
The card he found is a red autograph, serial numbered 7/10, which has been one of my white whales for my Baseball Heroes rainbow.
Who knows if I ever would have tracked this card down on my own. I guess all the time and energy I'm spending on this blog is paying off.
Darkship also included a handful of Royals cards.
As well as a few Denver Broncos cards. I especially like the National Chicle cards, although I don't quite understand the background behind Elway. Maybe it was inspired by a game the Broncos played on a baseball field?
Thanks for trading with me Darkship. I hope you liked the cards I sent you as much as I like mine.
