Thanks Ryan, and i agree, he does a really good job.
Hi. Do you still need a Nate McLouth auto? I got him on a 2012 Topps (Pirates) in Syracuse before he got called up. Thanks!
Yes, I still need McLouth, please let me know what you would like in return. Best way to reach me is my email address, salsmanado at gmail dot com. Thanks!
