This beauty has to be one of the shortest, as the crow flies, mail days that I’ve ever had. A year or so ago when I lived in Indiana, I picked up an Andrew Shaw card that I needed from another town just outside Indianapolis. Either that, or this one, was the shortest ever.
A will call Eric a friend, as we chat quite often and met at a local card show a few weeks ago. He picked up a beautiful Trevor Daley patch card sometime in the last couple of months and had shown me. I’ve become a Stars fan (they’re still number two, though) when I moved to the area and Daley is my girlfriend’s favorite player.
He let me know last week that he’d decided not to keep it and asked me if I was interested in picking it up. Um, YES! We worked out the details and this beauty arrived in my mail yesterday.
I’m not sure everyone does it, but when it’s a patch cards, I like to attempt to figure out where on the sweater it came from. On this one, there is little doubt.
