The first card I obtained was a signed Crown card that I received in a trade. I ended up re-trading that card, sending it to Kirk from Eutaw Street Cardboard, for this awesome orange uni card. Since I don't particularly collect the Crown set and Kirk doesn't care about orange uniform cards, it was a great trade for both of us.
I don't remember if I've ever seen a card from this 1990 Donruss The Rookies set before, but that green border is pretty hideous. Luckily the card is saved by Marty's wearing that outstanding orange
In a post about Marty that I wrote almost two years ago, I mentioned that he was managing in Japan and there weren't any TTM successes listed for him since 2006. Well, that all changed this season when Marty returned state-side to manage the Las Vegas 51s, the Blue Jays AAA affiliate. I noticed that he had returned a few collectors' TTM requests, so I decided to give it a shot too. And bam, 12 days after I sent my request, I had a personalized Crown card back. Thanks for signing Marty! And thanks for the trade, Kirk!
