Trade Mail From Summer of '74

A while back Matt and I worked out a trade. I can't recall what I sent him but here's my end of the deal:

Working on these autographed sets: 1983 Topps and 1991 Upper Deck, two of my favorite sets all-time. So very glad to add some cards to these. I had sent a few cards to Manny Trillo in the past and he signed two out the three but not the 1983, which was the one I really needed.

And more Fleer stickers! Pecking away at these sets as well, so very happy to get 9 more.

Thanks for the trade Matt.

Angels Great Hangs It Up

Jered Weaver is retired.

I got this card signed in 2006, in person, at Rangers Ballpark here in Texas. The Angels were in town so I got in early with a buddy's season ticket and caught Weaver lounging on the dugout steps, shades on, spitting sunflower seeds. I made eye contact, held up my autograph book, not a word spoken, he gave me a headnod and I tossed him the book.
He was so cool.

You gave us some great years Weav, thank you.

Any Help With The Last Card?

I received these cards in a massive box from Bo Rosny recently (more details on that box in a later post) the 2001 Topps Logo Race Baseball Cap Offer cards:
As you can see, I'm lacking just one to complete the set: National League Central.
Anyone out there wanna dig in their junk wax looking for one for me?

I'd also like to collect these six cards with the stickers attached, AND all the team logo sticker cards as well (as well as the Opening Day Team Logo sticker set) Phew!

Thank you!
