9 Card Tribute for Bob Walk the Plank

Last Saturday we all found out that one of the best blogs and one of the best bloggers out there was retiring. Matt, of Bob Walk the Plank fame made the honorable decision to spend more time with his family and less time blogging. I think we all get, it he will certainly be missed.

Today's the last day to enter my contest and it's been fun to see a few other bloggers pay tribute to Matt as part of my contest. I thought I'd do the same.

I had the pleasure of meeting up with Matt and his brother last year for a D-Backs vs. Pirates game. It was great to meet up with Matt in person!

Matt and I made a blind trade that day and this David Peralta card was one of the cards he brought me. Peralta is having a solid year and just played in his 500th D-Backs game. Not bad for a guy who started as a pitcher with the Cardinals and then was out of baseball for a while before coming back as an outfielder 

Matt is one of the most generous traders out there. Between trades and a contest win here are some of my favorite cards that I've gotten from Matt over the years.

Matt, you will certainly be missed in the blog-o-sphere, but I'm glad you're going to still be active on Twitter so we can keep in touch. If you're ever back in Phoenix let me know and we'll catch another D-Backs game.


  1. Matt is a good dude. That black All-Star Goldy is nice!!! I am becoming such a fan of the black, pink, and camo parallels year after year.

  2. Wow, those are some great items he traded. He certainly will be missed.

  3. Pretty cool meeting another blogger IRL. Matt always sends the goods with his trade packages!

  4. Some very neat cards. Very cool that you had the opportunity to go out and grab a game together.

  5. Thanks for the nice words Daniel. You really rolled out the red carpet for my brother and I when I was in Phoenix.
