Belated Birthday Winnings from mmmrhubarb

My birthday is September 11th.  This year, my wife let me have a golf tournament for my birthday party.  It was great fun and while I was on the course, she sent me a text message that her step-brother and his girlfriend had given birth to their son on my Birthday.  I knew they loved me, but giving me a nephew for a birthday buddy was above and beyond the call of duty.

Turns out, I also have a birthday buddy in the collecting world, none other than mmmrhubarb of the great blog e rayhahn, rayhahn.  For his birthday, he had a contest to guess what he did for his birthday in 2001.  I guessed that he went to the rollerskating rink with his family.  It turns out that I was no closer than anyone else, but since we were birthday buddies, he decided to award me the contest win. 

Fast forward a few weeks and my winnings arrived in the mail, a glorious Todd Helton game-used bat card.  And it's of the Heritage design, which is one of my favorites.



This card will be a great reminder of my 30th birthday and of my newest birthday buddy.  Thanks!

Wait. Both you and mmmrhubarb were born on September 11th? I was as well and so was VOTC. How crazy is that? It was also my brother-in-law's birthday and the birthday of one of my managers at work (who also shares my first and middle names). Small world.
