I feel like I have made quite a few friends since I started up this blog a little over 2 years ago but I have only had the pleasure of meeting on person who I have met through the blog. He doesn't have a blog of his own but is familiar to quite a few bloggers - Jim aka mrhaverkamp. Jim is a great guy and a fellow Giants fan. We have now met up 3 times, two down on my turf and one up his way. I share my white whale acquisition in this post and it is time to share the spoils from our other two get togethers.
In Northern California we met up at McCovey's Restaurant for dinner and to gawk at all the awesome memorabilia. I took a few pictures of all the great stuff but have somehow lost those picks - a good reason to go back during my next Nor Cal visit. I did however scan some pictures of the cards Jim brought:
My latest meeting with Jim netted me these cards in trade from a big stack of 2014 Heritage base cards:
It is great to have such a great friend to swap cards and share stories with. Additionally, Jim called me from a card show recently with a couple of items he was sure I would want to add to my collection. I gave him the green light to buy them for me and can't wait to show them off when he sends them my way.
Jim, thanks for your generosity and friendship!
