Trading With Cliff

@oriolesrise was someone in the last couple of months or so I have begun to follow on Twitter. Before that, we would still have conversations about his postings but I never actually had followed til I realized I wasn't. It was shameful I wasn't already.

Anyways, he posts some really cool stuff and as we began to talk a couple of weeks ago, he had posted a few things I really wanted and he nicely set them aside. We quickly, very quickly I thought I was dealing with The Flash, agreed on a trade and a deal was done. The only problem I am having with the deal is that my end hasn't arrived to him yet after almost a week. Gotta love USPS. If it doesn't, I will just have to send another and hope that arrives. But, I am hopeful that USPS will do their jobs and get what I sent to him. I have never had a PWE get lost before and I don't want this to be a first.

In the meantime, @oriolesrise mailed mine right out and I got it in two days.

A cool Fleer Giants schedule sticker for my PC from 1989 I believe.

Up next, a cool unopened Pinnacle Cooperstown set that had a Griffey I needed. I am not sure yet if I will open or keep it sealed.

Look! I am 1 of 200,000 people to own one!
And finally, the big draw in for me was this Pinnacle The Naturals set. It also has a Griffey I needed and just looks stunning overall. Once again the set is sealed and I am torn on whether I want to open it yet or not.

A big thanks goes out to @oriolesrise for the mail day. I hope my end arrives to you soon and that we can work out future deals down the road. Go give this guy a follow people if you haven't yet!

  1. The lure is obviously for the Griffeys, but looking at those old teal Marlins pinstripe uniforms that Sheffield used to wear bring back some fond memories for me as a kid.
