I am not sure what to expect from this team when they come off from the bye. There could be lots of changes including one at QB. We will see. Will Kyle Lauletta finally get his chance? Will he actually be able to succeed behind that offensive line? I sure hope so. Especially after today's pickups.
So I am not one who usually sticks his neck out there especially on Facebook groups looking to trade. Well, there is a first time for everything and I am glad I did as I made a monster trade.
The guy had posted up a Saquon Barkley autograph, we will look at that in a second, for trade and I jumped right in. Luckily for me I had the basketball cards he was looking for and I was more than happy to let go of basketball cards for what I got.
The first card isn't a Giants card and was actually a guy who ran all over the Giants, but I have been wanting/needing an Alvin Kamara auto for some time and this is a rookie one from Phoenix. Solid looking card and I love the way he signs his name with the star. Very cool. I have knocked down two of the three autographs I have been wanting and the one that remains is still Patrick Mahomes.
Now onto my Giants pickups.
He had three Kyle Lauletta autos to let go of so I took them.
Origins. Nice looking card but 00's on the jersey makes me cry.
Pen Pals. I had one in graded school. We will talk about that sometime.
And I loved this one. Nice relic/auto. But, what's confusing to me is why is he in a 17 on this card for Origins and a 00 on the others. ;-/
Now the big card that started it all....my second Barkley autograph and my first one in a Giants uni.
Some great additions to cheer me up in what has been a blue season for Big Blue. I don't think I have ever had to go through this ever with my Giants since I started watching them. They are in a rough stretch the last few years and need some motivation to turn things around. Let's see if that happens after the bye week.
