I bought a blaster of ’09 Bowman today and pulled this beauty of a card. I’ve seen Cuetos auto before, I think it was the ’08 Topps set. I was hoping that maybe he didn’t understand that they would use this particular signature on the front of his card, but here it is again. I know Night Owl is waiting ever so patiently for his Cueto redemption. I too, am looking forward to seeing what his card will look like. In my head I imagine it written in green crayon with the E T O of his name under the rest because he ran out of room. At least that’s how my 5 yr old does it.
Above is the highlights of a trade with Ed from Roll Out The Barrel. He is a Brewers fan, which I won’t hold against him, who was in need of some ’08 Masterpieces. He sent in return a nice stack of Cub’s cards. I like the Heritage sets. I don’t collect them for the simple reason of the insane SP’s. I do, however, love the Chrome versions of these cards. If anyone has any Cub’s Chrome Heritage for trade, hit me up. I want them. Also included was the ’88 Score Highlights card of the first night game at Wrigley. I can remember that night like it was yesterday. I was riding my bike home from a friends house to watch the game and got stuck in the same storm that rained out the game. I had welts from the hail, our power went out, I scrounged around the house to find enough C batteries to power our gigantic boom box only to find out the game was going to be rained out. It’s almost an analogy of being a Cub’s fan.
In other news, I may or may not be getting reinstated on the Beckett boards. I have my fingers crossed. You will here more about this when I get the word. Also this was on the front page of Yahoo so some of you I’m sure have seen it. Anyone who hasn’t, it’s worth 2 minutes of your day.
