Recently, legendary blogger Wes Moore- aka JBF- retired from blogging. I missed most of Wes's heyday as I didn't discover card blog's existence until late 2014. Well, Matt of Sports Card Collectors suggested a Blog Bat-A-Round in honor of Wes and his legendary generosity, and I can absolutely do that!
I don't remember everything I've gotten from Wes, but I have been on the receiving end of his generosity, as I think most bloggers have been.
While I don't have any pictures because I can't remember which people they were, at one point Wes also sent me a large batch of people missing from my collection, which is very much appreciated even if I didn't yet keep track of who sent them to me.
The first card I really distinctly remember getting from Wes was from a Christmas trade-a-thon he ran in 2016. It was an interesting time for me. At that point, I was watching the NHL but had not committed to collecting the cards on a regular basis. Although I was already watching as much as I could, I was still keeping it a secret, to make sure I was truly a fan, and I didn't want to start spreading my limited hobby funds to a sport if it was just a passing fancy. Well, we obviously know how that turned out. So, technically this card from Wes is the first hockey card I added to my collection after becoming a fan of the sport.
In 2017, I got a huge package of cards from Wes's World Cup of Trading. Seriously, check it out. The key card from me was this towel card of Doug McDermott:
Finally, in 2018, I took part in Wes's Mega Break and claimed the Knicks, Nets, Rangers and took a couple random slots, if I recall. The cards I won are making their Cardboard History debut right here and now! I am saving the best for last.
I got two college autographs
a Serial Numbered Rusty Wallace insert from 1997 Road to the Cup...
But the biggest card in the bunch...
Thank you Wes, for the generosity over the years!
