Jaybarkerfan / Willinghammer Rising is a legendary trader around the Blogosphere, and this is my second trading event participation with him. It turned out to be pretty incredible- better than I initially thought when I was claiming stuff from him!
What he did in the World Cup of Trading was post a bunch of really great stuff, had you pick out 3 items, and then send him something you think he would enjoy. I sent him three wrestling autographs and 4 wrestling figures, and when I got the package back from him on Saturday, I really think I didn't send enough!
There were two main things I claimed from him, and this towel card of Doug McDermott was the first. It's my first towel relic, and it's not too often I can add an entirely new kind of relic to my collection. (I ended up getting two in two days, but you'll have to wait for a future post to see the other).
The other main card was this triple relic:
I also claimed a Alex Ovechkin relic, from 2015-16 Ultimate Collection (another new set for me)
and a Refractor from 1998-99 Bowman's Best of Bison Dele.
And more...this time a picture
To be honest, I think I claimed some of those NBA relics and possibly the Lidstrom as well, but I don't remember for sure so I am lumping them all in here.
For those keeping count at home, that is, for my collection, baseball relics #1-6 and football #2-11, and Golf relic #1! I'm not sure how many it is for NBA and NASCAR yet, as my records are several months out of date right now, and I'm still a couple of months away from updating them. (depends on how fast I scan stuff) My first CFL card of any sort!
I've always enjoyed seeing the relic cards from other sports, either being posted to blogs, forums or even for sale online. Now I have some of my own!
But STILL that wasn't all! Aside from the Bison Dele refractor, there were these:
All in all, a pretty incredible package from Wes! I think I got a MUCH better end of the bargain, and I'm thrilled to add these cards to my collection! Thank you Wes!
