Vealtones in the mail.

More rumors out there. This time Texas is looking to sign Shin-Soo Choo and passing on Jacoby Ellsbury. Supposedly the team likes Leonys Martin enough to pass on Ellsbury. Can never have too much speed I say.

Something that is no longer a rumor is a trade I recently made with Dustin over at Coot Veal and the Vealtones. Dustin cleverly insured he would send first by neglecting to provide me with his address. I got my part of the trade on Saturday and will be sending today or tomorrow.

The trade came about as the result of an earlier post looking to add to my Rangers game-used and autograph collection. Dustin was able to come through for me in a big way with seven game-used and three certified autograph cards. If that wasn't enough, he also tossed in a slew of other cards I needed. One of the additional cards was this 2007 Upper Deck card of Kevin Millwood. It's card 231 in the set and completes my 2007 Upper Deck team set.

Always nice to make a trade with a stand-up guy. Even nicer when he unexpectedly throws in extras that hit your wantlist. Dustin's that kind of guy. If you ever get a chance to make a trade with him you should do it in a heartbeat. Thanks again Dustin!

Wow, thanks for the kind words. Glad I could finish off a team set, too.

Thank you for the trade. Hope you enjoy your end as much as I am mine.
