Not So Average Trade

When I was in high school, I drew a comic panel (one panel does not make a strip) called The Average Joe. It included scenes that were out of left field. Every time I read The Average Joe, I am reminded of that comic panel.

Why do I mention The Average Joe? Simple. A package arrived in yesterday's mail from the proprietor of that site. It is a nice break from the behemoth box that I am still sorting through from another kind and generous soul.

I a well protected package, I received a handful of White Sox cards and a few Ryne Sandberg cards that I am collecting for my friend. Some I needed, others I didn't, but all are appreciated.

Thank you, Joe!! That was great. Especially the Roberto Hernandez. That is the first card that I have signed by him, amazingly. I actually found a framed autographed picture of him at a Salvation Army store a few years ago for five dollars. I thought that was an great find. I think that this tops that.

Thanks also for the contributions to the Sandberg collection that I am putting together for my good friend.
