Trade With Austin aka Budda_Hat From Twitter
I am proud to be a Filipino and support the greatest athlete to ever come out of the Philippines but I have never acquired a Manny Pacquiao autograph of any sort. It was on my list of items to acquire but Austin aka Budda_Hat gave me the opportunity to check it off my list sooner rather than later.
As stated in yesterday's post about Don Sutton's signing I attended it for two reasons. One to obviously meet Mr. Sutton and to acquire his autograph and two to complete a trade with Austin. Earlier in the week he contacted me and asked if he knew anyone that would want a Manny autograph card that had been authenticated by PSA. Uh, yeah me. Ha Ha. Since Manny is a boxer there aren't many things I would/could get his autograph on. I am not going to start a boxing section for my autograph collection but thankfully Manny is showcased on a card from Allen and Ginter and that is what card Austin had in hand to trade.
Even though the autograph is in black sharpie (prefer blue) it is a great looking card of a victorious Manny and I couldn't pass it up if the opportunity presented itself. We agreed on the trade and when we met up at Harry's we completed it and I finally had my very own Manny autograph to call my own. Simple trades are always the best. Thank you again to Austin for the card of the Filipino boxing great.
