The talented, and dare I say ahead-of-his-time blogger Matt at Diamond Jesters put on a contest and I was lucky enough to be one of the winners. He gave me a couple of topics to pick from and created my own personal haiku from it. His poetry has to be one of the most unique continued post topics on any blog I have seen. It makes his site one of my favorites. I chose the Portland Sea Dog topic as I had an apartment in Portland Maine for a couple of months overlooking Hadlock Field. He also tossed in a handful of PC player cards, all of which I needed. He is one of the best out there! Thanks Matt.
A BIG ASSISTThe Lost Collector aka AJ. He posts more often than 99% of bloggers out there and always quality content. Mostly drool-worthy Tino cards and some Yankee scrubs. I spent way too much money trying to pull this Aaron Slegers card this year and finally asked for help. AJ was my savior and sent me one PWE practically overnight. I owe this return to him. Thanks again AJ!

Oh, Canada...Not to be outdone; I received TTM and got in person one autograph from two Canadian born athletes. Alex Delvecchio is a Red Wing legend and I was finally able to get him on this vintage card at a local card show. TTM hall of famer Pat Neshek has been throwing Nick Pivetta's name out all over social media as an up and coming card freak. I sent him a hockey auto I had found deep in a nickel box a few years ago in return for his scribble.
