A Spankee Yankee trade
I dropped the ball on this trade, but luckily Spankee didn’t. He sent me a great batch of Yanks that had a little of everything. I am just now sending out cards for him. Talk about a slacker.
The trade started by checking if a Reggie Jackson he pulled was for trade. Here’s the card. I’ve always loved these, especially with the signature.
A Joba card #/d to 699 was also included. Hard to believe I’m watching Joba’s last few weeks in pinstripes. He’ll either be traded today or walk away as a free agent next year.
Fleer Inscribed of Derek Jeter is just a classy card.
I have no idea what set this Roberto Kelly card comes from, but there were two different ones in the package.
A great old Topps All Star of Donnie Baseball.
A Topps Attax refractory card, which is surprisingly sharp looking for a Topps Attax card.
Last but not least, a Floyd Little Syracuse card. I always appreciate gestures like this, as it shows Spankees knows I’m a Syracuse guy from the few times I've mentioned it. I wonder if Floyd signs TTM…
Thanks again, Spankee! I SWEAR your cards are in the mail.
