Bo Jackson? No, but close: Bo from Baseball Cards Come to Life!
I contacted Bo last month to let him know I had a few vintage cards from his want lists. We began organizing a small trade, but when Bo realized that we were both New Yorkers (and both worked in Manhattan), he suggested we meet up in person. That way we could add a lot more to the trade without worrying about shipping costs.
In one of the many examples of kindness and generosity among collectors, as soon as I mentioned that I was going to start building a 1978 Topps baseball set, Bo added a heaping amount of 1978s to the stack. So many, in fact, that they became the bulk of the trade.
Here are just some of the nearly 150 cards that will help me get started on the set.
Bo also added a sizeable stack of players I followed back in the '80s and '90s. Thankfully, I had a decent amount of vintage and modern cards to send back his way.
Great to meet you, Bo! Thanks again, and keep up the good work over there.
And if any of you kind readers would like to trade, just let me know. I've posted a want list here at Nine Pockets, and have lots of cards available to send out (mostly baseball and hockey).
