My first official trade via the blogosphere has been completed. I have sent numerous trade packages out, and a number of bloggers are putting together return packages. However, the first package to arrive here at catchingupwithcolling.com, is from Chris over at Nachos Grande. I recently sent him a stack of Reds cards, and in return I got some great cards, as well as these two great additions to my collection of figures:
#NO22, Brad Ausmus
#AO34, Jason Varitek
I have to say that upon first opening the package, I had no idea what these were. Sure they are awesome, but I had never seen anything like them before. After doing some research, I came to find out that they are from 2004 MLB Sportsclix. Apparently, this was some kind of game wherein a person acted as a manager and somehow played a game with this little figures. That part I don’t care about. I do, however, care a great deal about the fact that I got two great little collectibles of Ausmus, and underrated catcher from the Astros, and Jason Varitek. Thanks Chris.
I will post more later about what else Chris sent.
