One of the best things about writing this blog besides getting in touch with other card collectors, has been trading cards. It has been the staple of this blog since I stretched out the arm of collecting friendship. I sent a few cards to a well known card collector and blogger Dayf a little while ago but nothing in comparison to what he sent back. A whole raft of Jacoby Ellsbury cards including the highly allusive 2007 Topps Update Jacoby Ellsbury rookie card, numbered as 100, which is a super duper short print.
The 2007 Topps Update and Highlights checklist designates card number 100 as belonging to Phillies third base Abraham Nunez. Then Topps decided that, they needed something special and chose Jacoby Ellsbury although he was included, as a rookie, in the 2005 Bowman Heritage set, a card that Dayf included as well.
All the cards Dayf sent are great additions to my growing Jacoby Ellsbury collection. Not be outdone Dayf included some brilliant 'Vintage' Red Sox cards. How can I possibly match this?
