A few weeks ago blog reader Kenny emailed me about wanting to start a trade. He pulled a sweet card that he thought I'd like (more on that later) and boy was he right. Thus started a series of emails figuring out what to send each other.
Did I mention Kenny lives in Japan? Prior to this, my two other international trades were in Canada (does that count?), and Australia. Adding Japan, a country 6,000 miles away from Maryland, to that list is quite cool. Also cool is the Hunter Pence card above. It is a Japanese card, "Sega Card Gen."
Danny Espinosa's USA Baseball jersey card was living in Japan. This was a total surprise and an awesome addition to the trade package.
Kenny also included some Japanese cards that I will be trading.
Torrey Smith had a big game today for the Ravens, who beat the Raiders 55 to 20. Joe Flacco actually did look like an elite quarterback today.
And finally for tonight, Cliff Lee shiny...a card I did not have. This is part one of a two part trade post. The best is yet to come!
