A Devil Ray's SP Card? You Bet! And Now I Have Ten.

Earlier in the week, smokinjoe from the Topps Message Board asked if I could reserve the last three 2010 Topps Gold Cards I have for him as he wanted to offer a card to me. I said I'd hold it for him, but did he need anything more from me as I didn't think I had enough for a trade. I didn't hear anything from him since. That was until yesterday.

A bubble envelope arrived in the mail from smokinjoe. And I was shocked. I didn't hear from the guy, thinking that the offer was dead. But this is what was inside:

2009 Topps U&H Wade Boggs #UH103b.

Needless to say, the three gold cards will be in the mail as soon as I can get envelopes (that would be Monday morning). The generosity of those in the Hobby blows me away. Whether you're a blogger, or a forum junkie, you have to admit that without this internet thingy, none of our collections could be where they are now. So thanks Joe.

That's ten down, and fifteen more to go to complete my 2009 U&H shortprint set. If anyone has any of the other fifteen cards (you'll find them on the sidebar...not too hard to find), please let me know what you have and what you need.

What ten cards do you have. I have a Reggie Jackson in the A's uniform that I would be willing to trade.
