Before It Gets Buried By More Days

I want to thank Ron, of Section 36, for the cards that came late last week.

My goal was to get a trade summary up last weekend, but things have been hectic in my family the last eight days. Last weekend, an immediate family member was rushed to the hospital by ambulance. After a lot of testing, everything turned out OK.

Just as we were recovering from that, my great uncle passed away suddenly. I learned more about his life, after his death, than I did when he was alive. Even his kids were learning things. I knew about the heroism of his time with the Chicago Fire Department and his later career as a barber. What I didn't know, was that my great uncle was a Golden Glove boxer in Chicago, a water polo champion in Miami, a Korean War veteran, an artist, among many other hats that he wore throughout his life. He just never spoke about them.

It's been a long week, but I wanted to get this post up before any more time passed. It contained cards from 2000 - 2010. Some really great cards that will probably find their way into card spotlights.

Thanks, Ron! When my supply of Red Sox cards builds up again, I will send you something.

Sorry to hear that you had such a rough week.

Glad that you enjoyed the cards, though.
