Rasmus, of the YouTube channel Holmbergs Corner, contacted me about sending me some D-Backs cards. We arranged a trade about a week later I got a package from Sweden. Thanks Rasmus! Go check out his YouTube channel.
Check out what he sent me.
First up are a couple of Finest base cards including a Chris Owings RC and a Paul Goldschmidt, both of which I needed.
Next up is a sweet Finest Sterling insert card of Goldschmidt. Another card I needed. In fact, I didn't have any of the cards he sent.
Here is a blue parallel of Martin Prado from 2014 Bowman.
Next up are two autographs of Jake Barrett. The base and then the gold parallel numbered to 50!
Finally, this 2014 Triple Threads jersey/auto of Didi Gregorious. It must have been a redemption and so I thought I'd scan it with in the top loader with the Topps sticker on it.
Thank you so much Rasmus! I'll be sending some Brewers your way soon!
In Game 6 of the 1993 World Series with the Blue Jays leading the Phillies 3 games to 2, the Phillies took at 6-5 lead into the bottom of the 9th. With two men on, Joe Carter came to the plate and hit a 3 run home run off Mitch Williams to win the game and the World Series in walk-off fashion.
Not sure why I wasn't watching the game on TV, but I remember listening to this game on the radio and going crazy when Carter hit the home run.
Steve Avery started Game 2 and Game 6 for the Atlanta Braves against the Pittsburgh Pirates in the 1991 NL playoffs. He pitched 8.1 shutout innings in Game 2 striking out 9 and at one point retiring 11 straight Pirates batters. The Pirates won 1-0.
In Game 6, with the Braves trailing in the series 3 games to 2, Avery pitched 8 scoreless innings struck out 8 Pirates and the Braves won 1-0. The Braves would go on to win Game 7 and Avery was named NL Playoff MVP.
