Warning: A Lot of cows were harmed for this post.

Ok I decided on a new PC item last night and I could use your help. Prior to this Blog I had a Tumblr, and my very 1st post was about my all time fave card: Read the post and see the old blog HERE
Anyway, I found my original Mickey last night and decided to do a BIG GLOVE PC. I want any and all card depicting players goofing-off with over-sized baseball mits. 

Here's what I've found so far:

Who Knew? Mickey Hatcher rocked the big glove twice on cardboard! 

A-Gone and Juan Guzman also packed some large leather, but you'd have to Flip JG's 94' UD card over to find it!

Puig put on the oversized for an SP in 2013 Topps Flagship:

Ok, So here's where i need you help. I got my hands on all 5 of these through Ebay, COMC, and Some I had. I even found this awesome photo that I'm going to put on cardboard through the RookiesApp.

I just can't seem to track down this one!

So if anybody can help me with this one, or more importantly if you could pass along any info on others I don't know about, I'd truly appreciate it. 

Thanks in advance!

This is why we trade

I've been fortunate enough to meet some amazing collectors via Twitter and this Blog. I'm a big fan of trading cards, I"ll trade with anyone anywhere. This recent transaction with Twitter friend Kevin (Aka @porterman20) was exactly what trading cards should be about. Kev is a Red Sox guy, so it's a perfect fit for us, I send him some Sox he sends me some Yanks. We've done this a few times over the years. This last package I got from him was awesome! 

It's an awesome mix of Hits, Base, Slabbed and Vintage. Everything this Yanks collector could ask for. Now, admittedly I don't mess around much with grading, and what I do mess with is normally through PSA.  I may have had a change of opinion though after getting this sick Munson SP, it looks great in it's BGS home. And what bout that Yogi? That card is everything I love about collecting. I love the mini, the frame, his face and that old cloth.

Kevin, I can't thank you enough! I look forward to us continuing to build each others collection for years to come. 

For the rest of you, This is how I trade: If you collect a certain team I'll send you hits, inserts, base, and anything else you may or may not be looking for, I just ask for a comparable package in return. Shoot me a message if interested.
