A helping hand

Competition isn't always bad. It's always cool to run across fellow Braves collectors where we can help each other out from time to time.  Awhile back a reader contacted me about something...can't remember what exactly.  Turns out he too was a Braves fan and was looking for new trading partners.  From time to time I send him Braves stuff and he sends me Braves and Panthers cards.  He even started his own blog not too long ago, Chipp 'n' Dale.  Recently he contacted me about a Steve Smith card and tossed in a nice little bonus...

I love getting old Hornets cards!  I'm not as big a fan of the NBA now as I was in the early 90's, but that doesn't stop me from wanting more old school Charlotte Hornets...you know, the real Hornets.  I really really hope Michael Jordan renames the Bobcats the Hornets again since the name is being freed up.  The whole city is behind the movement.  Come on Jordan, Bring back the Buzz!

  1. What's going on with the Hornets name,or was it already changed? That tells you how closely I follow the NBA

  2. New Orleans can't change their name until the sale of the team to the Saints' owner is complete. I really hope the new owner does change the name. Not sure Jordan will spend the money to get the Hornets name back...but he needs to do something in Charlotte to get the city behind the team again.

    Call it irony that Charlotte loses out the #1 lottery pick this evening to the New Orleans Hornets!

  3. I love Hornets cards too-the cards I sent were just some dupes I had. After reading Muggsy Bogues's biography, I just got hooked on that team.

    Also, that line is awesome: "The whole city is behind the movement." Can I steal it sometime?
