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.
