Now THAT'S more like it
No, it's not poor Leron Lee. Didn't you hear? I have three of them already. Besides, dayf pulled his offer. I think he got the sense that I wasn't too enthused about another Lee card. He mentioned something about GMs and a team that got spanked by Willie McGee in the 1982 NLCS and took someone else's offer.
That's OK. Because I am enthused about this:
You may not know Rip Repulski, but I do. That's the same man that is on this card:
And here's part of the terrific back to that piece of '56 fantasticness.
Gritz76 of Project '62 offered me the 1960 Repulski card through the Million Card Giveaway. I thought he might offer me something, after I redeemed this card:
But as much as I enjoy that card, it's no match for a guy who went by "Rip" his entire career. A man who was traded to the Dodgers for none other than Sparky Anderson. And I do love the horizontal 1960 set. I hit the "accept" button quicker than an overcaffeinated Jeopardy contestant.
There are few certainties in life, but here is one of them: I will have Topps ship the Repulski card to me.
That trade offer came mere moments after I went ahead and accepted BA Benny's Jeff Burroughs card in exchange for my Braves team card. That's right, the Braves team card went to the Mets fan. Hey, Leron Lee was off the table. Besides, I've already put Burroughs to work for me in hopes it'll land one of the few 1981 Topps cards I need.
Meanwhile, I've gotten an offer for my 1987 Kevin Bass card.
Somebody offered me this for it:
Well, the Magee card IS one I don't have.
So, should I accept?
