I completed one of my most epic trades in recent memory with Jason from the blog Joe Average Collector. Jason is a Rockies fan and a Veteran of the Iraqui war. He commented on my trade bait update post saying that he had a Cal Ripken plate that I might be interested in. Of course I was interested in the Cal plate, but when he emailed me to tell me that he also had a 2010 Topps Nolan Reimold printing plate, well, it was on!
Ok, so, this is where it gets interesting. As if it wasn't already interesting. Jason emailed me the trade confirmation and stated everything that he was going to include in my box. He told me that he was including a relic from the Iraqui War, and I wasn't quite sure what that meant. I know unexploded ordinance can't really be shipped via USPS, so when I got this Iraqui money featuring the former public enemy number one, Saddam Hussein, I was amazed. I honestly don't know what to think. I mean, it is really cool and it is something I am going to hold onto, but that's Saddam Hussein! Kind of a funny feeling when you look at it.
