Delivery Time! There's Something About Alaska!

Like many bloggers, I try to keep accurate records regarding my trades.  In particular, I try my best to make sure that I don't ever short change a person - so keeping a detailed Excel spreadsheet helps me stay on task (even if I am a bit slow in mailing stuff at times).  The other benefit of my spreadsheet is that I can do quick searches on it should the mood strike.  For some reason, when I was getting ready to type this post, I decided to see how many people I've traded with that live in Alaska.

Amazingly enough (to me anyhow), I have two active traders that both live in Anchorage, Alaska.  Today's trade is a small PWE from David...and it's really a companion envelope that goes along with the incredible box of goodies that he sent my way a few weeks ago.

Yep, that's a Barry Larkin redemption card - and yes, I consider it a Barry Larkin card for my collection.  Thankfully for me, David had already sent me the actual Larkin autograph so now I have a happy pairing for my collection!

In addition to the redemption, David threw in one other card...

...yep, David is so generous he uses autographs as packing material!!

Thanks for the quick envelope of goodies - and thanks again for the gigantic box from a few weeks ago.  I hope to have a return package headed your way soon (maybe even later today if all goes well)!

For everyone else, I am expecting to receive the 2015 Topps Heritage case later today so hopefully I'll be able to start the group break tonight!  You might have to wait until after The Big Bang Theory airs though...

I've traded with David as well. He's uber-generous.

I'm going to have to try and find this David guy, chances are I've at least seen him at a trade night or card show up here.
