That's part of what I love about this hobby. It doesn't matter what age you are. There is always a place for everyone.
Andrew also has all the markings to become a legend in this hobby, if he is not already.
He sent me a very awesome and what I would call a "power package"! Andrew really poured on heavy with the types of cards that I absolutely love and collect. He was a little unsure what to send me at first, but I can affirm that he sent me a jackpot!!
It's always a good day when I get new Mets cards and especially ones like these that I've never seen in person, until now. I find the David Wright in particular to be the most interesting and the Diamond Tejada looks absolutely stunning. I love me diamond parallels.
I also get to add to my cognac collection, which is filling out nicely thanks to fellow traders that know I like to indulge myself in parallel goodness!!
And finally we get to the GOLD!!!! These shiny cards look outstanding in a new binder filled with Ultra Pro Platinum pages. That is part of why I like them so much.
I don't know where I would be without gold parallels. In fact I think I mention it somewhere that they have a huge impact on me as a collector, dating back to 1993. I want to keep my tradition of gold going for as long as they keep producing them.
Back to the Diamonds where 2011 marked a big year for me as a collector. I have fond memories of pulling them and trying to see how many I acquire. Plus, they look really prestigious so that helps a bunch.
Andrew, I thank you so much for all the great stuff you sent. I assure you that your package will be getting to you shortly. I have it sitting right here in front of me along with 2 other traders that have been waiting on me for a while.
