    When we trade I go the extra step for a fellow collector. I send out the best packaging. I use sleeve covers, sandwich between cardboard protectors tight yet firm fit. Use of bubble wrap mailer often with delivery confirmation. I do not send damaged cards. I require the same respect. I understand trader ratings isnít required I urge you to make the effort to give those ratings.

    One of the cool things about the Brewers moving to the National League was getting a chance to see players like Gwynn, and not having to deal with Chicago traffic, came over to 2 Padres games in Milwaukee but both times Gwynn was on DL. Along with Kirby Puckett and Cal Ripken, Gwynn was a throwback to an era when players didn't chase top dollar to the highest bidder. That was one of the things I respected most about TG. Rest in peace Mr. Gwynn

    I'll always fondly remember the argument we'd used to have in the neighborhood as to who was the better hitter - Wade Boggs or Tony Gwynn. He could always rake. Taken way to early.

    Hi All
    When I first saw Tony play in a game at Jack Murphy in 1982, I knew he was something special. When I got back into card collecting, collecting Tony's cards was a prime desire and when I needed an username and email name; gwynn_fan just seemed natural.
    Hearing the news on Monday was a total shock. The previous news was that SDSU had signed Tony to a one year extension to coach the Aztecs.
    We had all ready gotten tickets to tonight's game versus the Mariners. It will be strange. Tony was the most informative and entertaining sports analysis on radio.
    Tony will truly be missed!
