Goudey Trade-away #8: Carter for Bonderman
This trade comes in from Matt in Manchester, Connecticut.
Giving: Jeremy Bonderman, #58 (red back)
Getting: "Clutch Hitting," 1987 Fleer 1986 World Series factory insert set
Matt writes: "I chose this card to symbolize my favorite baseball moment of all time." Whether Matt knew it or not, this card symbolizes one of the very worst moments of my childhood: the 1986 World Series. I can still remember walking through the living room crying after the Red Sox lost in stunning Red Sox fashion to the Mets.
I didn't get over that series for a very long time. As they say at the trial of Ted Stryker in Airplane! II: The Sequel, when trying to determine the place of death:
Prosecutor: Over Macho Grande?
Witness: I don't think I'll ever get over Macho Grande.
The 1986 World Series will always be my Macho Grande. Thanks for bringing that one up, Matt.
If you want to get in on the fun and trade with me for a 2007 UD Goudey card, email me!
