Got a bubble mailer in today. While not a complete surprise it was a nice gesture by Joe over at Cincinnati Reds Cards. Joe had told me that he was sending me a couple of Rangers game used cards to complete a trade that we had started earlier. Due to circumstances beyond Joe's control I had told him not to worry, but he did.
What arrived today was this 2005 Upper Deck MLB AL Artifacts jersey card of Laynce Nix. It contains a nice looking piece of blue jersey and is numbered 9/325. In addition, Joe also included two game-used cards of Michael Young and two game-used cards of Hank Blalock. I needed all five cards. Thanks a bunch Joe! I can't remember exactly what all I sent you but I am sure I got the much better end of the trade.
A quick side note. If nothing has happened by then, Mrs. Spiff is due to be induced first thing Monday morning. What with the new kiddo and all the assorted upheaval, it is possible that I will not be posting for several days. Just didn't want anyone thinking I had fallen off the face of the earth.
