Cubs/Red Sox Trade - Just My Damn Luck

A couple of Days ago, I got a hobby box of 2012 Gypsy Queen from my LCS. I was happy to discover that one of my guaranteed autographed cards was a Cub, Marlon Byrd. Now, he's not one of the biggest players available, but anytime you van get a hit of someone from your favorite team, that's a good thing, right?

Well, sure enough, just DAYS after I pull this card, the Cubs swing a deal with the Red Sox to send Byrd to Boston in exchange for pitcher Michael Bowden. Hey, it sucks, but these things happen.

Except......guess whose auto/jersey rookie card I JUST got rid of on ebay last month.

Yeah, you guessed it.



  1. Poor Marlon -- last to last. Well not exactly poor --6 mil this year. Who would you rather play for, Dale Sveum or Bobby V?

  2. nice idea.. thanks for sharing.
