World Cup of Trading Entrant 3/Wave 2-P Town Tom

My good buddy Tom decided he wanted to beef up his WCOT entry.  Boy did he ever!

 Always a good way to start any package. The power of the sliding hammer
 Not many cooler things exist than a Wheres Waldo jersey
 I have to admit that I am a big sucker for Fragments of the Farm
 Oh the stories this tarp could tell
 Now you're with me Boomer
Finally we have the Director of Smiles!  What a bad ass card!!

Tom you really know me well sir.  This was a great add on.  Thanks and cheers my friend.

Angus is on deck...with a monster

A new Redus thats straight butter

Been trying to pun this Gary down for quite sometime.  But everytime I thought I had it, it slipped away like butter.

 Issued by Kellers and placed on their butter packages these are pretty sweet
 I also picked up Von
And Juan.  They are available if anyone wants them.  Gary stays with me lol

World Cup of Trading Entrant 17- Dawgbones

Tonight we have entrant 17 courtesy of Richard aka Dawgbones.  Richard did quite a bit of research via email which led him in the right direction.  Here is his claim

And Richard listed a couple other items and asked that i surprise him. I can definitely do that.  So what did he send in return?? A doozy of a trade package
 This is definitely not a snake oil trade
 A lovely red refractor
 Hammer Time
 Mad Dog
 Miscut and fantastic
 A beaut of a card
 Presidential Action
 Bravos led by Chippah
 A nice b ball relic
 I have an itch to get in on the ginter fun
 A Smoltzie manuswatch
 I love boxing relics
 Onto the auto portion of our program
 Some more hockey love
 Man i miss Craiggers.  This baby is beautifully red
 Such a great unique auto
Richard finished me off with a great Harley shirt thats BIG ENOUGH FOR ME TO WEAR!!!

You did a great job Bones!!  Thank you!

World Cup of Trading Entrant 16- Bob Walk the Plank

This is entry for the reigning and defending champion Bob Walk the Plank.  Matthew is the master of ceremonies there and also my biggest adversary and also my best trading partner.  We started out slow and eventually things reached a level never seen here before.  Got a lot of respect for the man that is Matthew Scott.  Here is what he claimed in the WCOT

Would you expect anything less than straight fire in return from this mad man
Here we go

 He started with these little hammers
 Then we innocently moved into this auto relic
 This beauty is #d to 50 and it only gets lower
 Now another beauty dropping down to /40
 Holy smokes this red auto is #d to 5
 Holy crap another 5er
 And whats better than that....
This is 1/1 fire!!

Matt my friend you are simply top notch brother.  I thank you so very much for everything.  

Coming up in the next couple of days are Angus and Richard...spoiler alert.  Both brought major heat
