Finally picked up Chris Young. Not the Chris Young that once played for the Arizona Diamondbacks, but the ex-Padre pitcher. What happened to this guy. He used to be such a feared member of the Padre pitching staff, right there with Jake Peavy and Maddox. The injury monster got to Mr. Young. He has been battling to get back from a 2009 surgery to repair his shoulder. I hope he can make it back to the Chris Young of old, and not suffer the fate of someone like Brandon Webb. It is sad when injuries cut fantastic players career's short.
Another return came in the same day as Bigfoot. This one comes from Mark Teahan. I have been finding some success recently, where earlier there wasn't any. Teahen falls under that arena, as well as some of the recent Rockies I picked up. How ever I am finding some doors that were open when I first started are not longer available.
I have seen returns from Bob Chandler and Bigfoot since I started this blog. I am surprised I had not sent to him before. I think I even remember writing a letter a couple years ago. Well at this point, I am glad I finally reached out to him and have this card returned.
I am really excited to see this one come in. Mr. Kennedy seemed to be responding pretty well to TTM so I decided to send him a request.
When I moved from Arizona to southern California in 2002, the Diamondbacks were just coming off a World Series win and the Angels were heading to one. It was amazing being in two cities back to back experiencing World Series wins. Adam Kennedy was huge for the Angels in the post season. A particular 3 home run game comes to mind.
Yesterday saw the return of another TTM. success. It has been really nice to get back into the swing of this project. I started a new job recently and the time that has been freed up has really be amazing.
I really like this card and the signature. It is very clean, positioned well, and the card design really makes it pop. In addition, I have always been a fan of the added jersey numbers.
