A Trade From A Tribe Fan

I met another great person through this blog this week, Jack from All Tribe Baseball, otherwise known as Baseball Dad in the comments. Jack started writing his blog in November of 2007, but has been a Cleveland Indians fan forever.

Jack e-mailed me with a list of Pujols cards that I did not have, and I was drooling at my keyboard at the idea of a bubble mailer with all those cards. After a few e-mails back and forth we were able to hammer out a nice deal for all the Pujols cards in exchange for a variety of Tribe cards that he did not have (along with some extras that I didn't tell him about).

I went to the post office today and there was my glorious package of Pujols! I
barely made it home and was ripping it open. To my surprise, there were a bunch of surprises inside, as well as one for Sooz which I didn't open. Jack also threw in a few extra cards that were delightful, including a Gold 2008 Cano card and some Tulo, Joba, and Cano cards that I didn't have. Here is what I ended up with:
