More goodies from Zippy Zappy

A few weeks ago, I completed a trade with Kenny aka Zippy Zappy. He definitely sent me a sweet haul.

Out of the blue, another package from Kenny arrived at my door. We hadn't been working on any deal or anything. Upon opening it, there was a note from Kenny that said he was downsizing his collection a little bit, and no need to send anything in return. Certainly a very generous gesture.

There was no shortage of shiny or ink in the cards he sent. First off, there were two...yes TWO Dellin Betances certified autos. I had a Dellin auto from TTM, but nothing official. Dellin has finally been moved to the bullpen, and he's been a lot better. I wouldn't be surprised if the Yanks get something out of him this year.

There was also a 2011 Topps Chrome Blue Refractor autograph of Hector Noesi, the second part of the famous Montero-Pineda swap.
Here's a sampling of what Kenny sent, including a bunch of prospects I collect. That is also my first Youkilis card as a Yankee. Thanks for nothing so far, Youk.
Kenny, both packages have been a blast to go through, especially with all the prospects cards. Thanks again!

    Two years later, I'd say the Yankees have gotten a lot out of Betances these past few years :).
