He also through in some additional Royals besides the Aaron Crow. These just happen to be 2 new cards of the top 2 young players in the organization that I hope will make a dramatic impact this year AND for many years to come: a 2012 Topps Gold Futures Mike Moustakas and a 2012 Topps 87 Mini Eric Hosmer. I welcome any cards of these two players. I must say the 1987 Minis look pretty sharp!
The centerpiece of this trade was my first relic/autograph card of anybody. I have to be honest in that I don't really chase relics and autographs, but I thought an Aaron Crow (the token 2011 Royal All Star who didn't play because he was sick....) would be pretty sick to own. When I opened up the package from Michael, this card sure didn't disappoint. A 2011 Topps Finest dual patch/autograph card!!! I think I might just be chasing relics and autos now for my collection. Here it is.
Thanks Michael for a great trade!
