My pal Dennis recently surprised me with some great cards (and magazines!) last week. Of course anything involving Dennis is taken to the next level.
I thought it was a rule that if your name is Max your nickname automatically becomes "Mad", but unfortunately Max Carey's nickname was Scoop. Either way check out this beauty of the Pirates Hall of Famer.
A Prestige Plate of former Mountaineer great Tavon Austin. I'm sad that the Rams continue to not utilize the speedster. Free Tavon!
I don't fault the Pirates for taking Pedro Alvarez, but man oh man it would have been nice to have Buster Posey.
If the Pirates are going to compete for the playoffs next year they really need Glasnow to be good. He has been a disaster so far at the MLB level.
Last, but not least is a nice bunch of magazines featuring the Pirates (and Penguins) prominently. I'm looking forward to looking at the Beckett more closely. I find those old Beckett's fascinating.
Thanks so much for the surprise cards Dennis. I look forward to getting you back!
Thanks for reading.
