Moving On Up- Second Trade
There for a couple weeks I was thinking that nothing was going to come up. Boy was I wrong. I have learned to become much more patient with the process after these past couple weeks of gaining attention to the project. Many people have started to follow the cause and I have been overwhelmed by the support.
After waiting for a couple weeks the next item has finally arrived. Although the trader wishes to remain anonymous, I cannot thank him enough. I traded the A-Rod Rookie card for a Game Model Ike Davis A2000 from Wilson. Wilson makes Davis's custom gloves that he wears on the field. While this glove is not game used it is one of very few that were ever made. This New York Mets Infielder takes this glove out on to the field with him each day in the big leagues. This particular glove was never sent out to him and is in mint condition with him name stitched into the side.
I felt these last couple weeks as if the project was going to fail, but after this recent trade I know that it will be a great success. I have been putting a lot of hard work into this whenever I can and it appears to be paying off. I really do feel like this is going to change a kids life and I am thoroughly looking forward to the next trade. If this item is something you are interested in trading for send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also follow along on the Twitter account @TwoBlueDice. Thanks for all of you supports and I hope to hear from all of you soon!
