Late Mail

I won both of these cards in a razz (raffle) for a mere amount of what they're actually worth. I know absolutely nothing about Gavin Lux except for the fact that he's 19 years old and was drafted in the first round of the 2016 draft. He's at least a couple years away from the majors, and I do not have that kind of patience when it comes to prospects.

I'll probably end up selling this card, or possibly grading it. I don't think there's anyway I could wait 2+ years to see if a prospect pans out.

The other card that I won was this Adrian Gonzalez booklet /10! Even though I'm not a Dodgers fan, I'll still end up keeping this card if it doesn't get traded for something Yankees related.
Thank you for reading!

Aroldis Chapman 1/1 Nameplate

Baseball is back! Kind of. Opening day is still 43 days, but spring training is here (Thank God). I've picked up quite a few cards since the last time I posted which seems like forever ago. I ended up selling my Scully, and got a nice chunk of cash for it. I put that money towards some cards that I'd appreciate more, such as this Aroldis Chapman 5X7 1/1 nameplate!

I could care less that Chapman is shown on the Reds on this "card." It's a 1/1 nameplate for crying out loud!

After the Yankees acquired Chapman from the Reds last year, I went out and bought this 1/1 booklet. I sold it shortly after due to Chapman was traded.

And here's a scan of the monstrous card. Even though I don't agree at all with Chapman's contract, I'll enjoy watching him close out games in the Bronx in the next 5 years. If only 86 million wasn't spent on him...
