Yes, he is still alive! Nico over at NrMt sent me a sweet package the other day that was full of Nick Markakis cards. Woo!! Nico is paring his collection down to a few players and sent me the Markakis' that he had collected. Nico has a great blog, but doesn't write a whole lot due to a huge workload for school. Pay his blog a visit and remind him that we all like reading what he has to say!! Thanks for the cards, dude, I really appreciate it!
