Having A Ball

I've been posting about this trade for quite some time now. But we have finally arrived at the crowning glory. The piece that made this trade the trade that all future trade will be judged against. It begins with this note:

This is in reference to this card I sent dayf a while ago. What he sent just blows me away. I would trade that Heyward card a million times over.

Here's the tease...it's a certified autographed baseball from the 2001 Topps Archives Reserve set.

And it turns out to be an autograph from my all-time favorite player, Andy Pafko. For my posts about Andy you can go here.

Thanks so much dayf!

Now we're even :) I got that in 2002 from a Yahoo Auction lot that had a bunch of base cards from 2001 Archives Reserve. My guess is the seller ripped a box, kept the cards he wanted and sold the rest. That ball just sat in my basement with my other signed balls and I figured you'd enjoy it more than me.
