Here it is!
A 2011 Topps Gypsy Queen Ryan Howard auto! It's a sticker but I'm pretty sure its short printed. Also, packs of 2011 are crazy expensive so no chance I would be opening them. I already have the master set including short prints so it's nice to add a autograph!
Also, as the title of this post indicates, I completed a trade with Fantastic Catch! He inquired about a Cardinals card he wanted and we quickly came to an agreement (that's usually how it works around here)
He threw in a nice mix of Phillies. The Kenny Giles card is my first of him. He's the Phillies new fireball reliever who throws 100 MPH. I hope he develops into a power arm and sticks around for a while. It'd be nice to have our own version of Chapman at the back of the bullpen. The McGraw is a card I needed for my slow progress on collecting Phillies sets. Always nice to delete something from the ole want list!
Happy Fireworks games everyone (they are today and tomorrow at Citizens Bank Park, I will be attending tomorrow)
Thanks for reading!
