So, a few week s ago, I was reading the blog Shot Not Taken. Ray and I have traded before, and he seems to have a knack for pulling low-numbered Giants out of Topps packs. In our first trade, I got this:
A Tim Lincecum black parallel #/58 from 2009 Updates and Highlights.
Now, I know that Raymond collects asian players, so when I saw what he had pulled from 2010 Topps, and I know that I had to have it, I offered him a 2208 Ginter Akinori Iwamura TTM autograph and a small stack of cards for his asian PCs. In return, he sent me a single card, but it’s an awesome one:
The very first 2010 Tim Lincecum silk card made! This card is amazing, and I’m very glad to own it. Thanks so much Ray, and I look forward to trading with you in the future!
