Instagram Pickup - Josh Donaldson Tristar Auto
The trade was this card for a 2014 Topps Chrome George Springer sepia parallel. While it took the kid a little longer than I would have liked to ship me this card, it got here, and was in great shape. I think he just forgot to send on time, which I can't blame him; sometimes life gets in the way.
Donaldson isn't a PC of mine, and while I respected him as a member of the A's, I know I will like him less now that he is a Blue Jay. He is a really good player, though, and I got this card with the sole intention of adding a few good player autos to my collection. Not necessarily guys that I PC, but ones who I think are pretty good, and will be fun to find when I thumb through my boxes.
I've had a few folks already ask me if I would trade the card, but I'm not really inclined to do so, for the reasons stated above. In the vein of why I got this card, I actually have been in the process of picking up a few others for that same purpose. Just relics and/or autos of guys who I feel are pretty good players.
