RIP Ryan

 Hello everyone, I'm posting here in one of my infrequent times. I'm kept pretty busy with the cat rescue my wife and I run. I'm still buying and selling on a smaller scale.By the end of the day, I just want to relax and chill out. That's when I start checking out some of my favourite blogs. I don't leave a lot of comments but just enjoy keeping up with things. In late September, Chris of Nacho Grande: A Baseball Card Blog shared some sad news. Ryan R (roddster" in blog comments) passed away. You can read about his work and relationship with Chris in the above link. I had been a recipient in the past of some of Ryan's custom A & G minis. To honour his memory, Chris was sending out some of the cards to commenters. I just love the look and feel of them and wished to dd a few more to my collection.

And here they are in all their glory. Mostly baseball, but a superhero and golfer thrown into the mix. And I received one of the variant backs. I don't know if Chris did this on purpose or not, but it was a Blue Jays Jose Bautista 8/25 Bazooka back. (Jays are my team.) Thanks Chris for these and remembering Ryan at the same time.
