Acetates: The Summation of a Facebook Messenger Conversation
Fellow Collector: "Hey, you collect acetate cards?"
Fellow Collector: "Hey, I am practically giving away these two acetate cards because, well, they are
cards of Jason Castro and Dan Haren"
Me: "Acetate!" "Dan Haren was on the Cardinals for ten minutes once?"
Fellow Collector: "Sure. LOL"
Me: "Paypal address?"
It's really rough right now. I need a compelling backdrop to make the conversation seem more dramatic. Maybe the negotiations could be a bit tenser, or the curtains in my living room should be on fire. Something. I am actually going to say that was pretty terrible and just show the cards. By the way, I love the green grass background on the Haren card.
