I think I came out on top in this trade, for Rockies fan your thoughtful gifts were a (wait for it) home run!Utterly blown away!
Not a purchase, but the result of a trade.
Well, it was SUPPOSED to be a trade, but it turns out that @PurpleRow may not be the most trustworthy of fellows.
Here’s how it all unfolded…
…I created a “Wanted” thread seeking an old Grabow Author of some kind.
…PurpleRow replied with pictures of the wonderful Grabow #33 pictured below.
…But he insisted on GIFTING it to me instead!
…After learning he was a Colorado baseball fan, I exacted my revenge by sending him some Rockies memorabilia…a mint, UNUSED ticket to the first game in Colorado history (April 5, 1993 at Shea against New York Metropolitans) along with an equally mint inaugural season program.
…Then THIS stuff arrived today!
Note the pipe where the stem is in the form of a bat and the bowl is a baseball! Plus two tins of tobacco!
I am speechless (well, not speechless because there are a lot of words above…but, WOW!)
Thanks so much, @PurpleRow!
