Always on Monday. I go to the mailbox all week long and nothing, then on Monday the postman can't close the door it's so stuffed. I got four packages in the mail today, all from fellow bloggers. Here's a sneak preview of all four.
First up is a package of stuff from Heartbreaking Cards of Staggering Genius. I sent him that Bo Jackson graded card from that repack box and a bunch of stuff off his want lists. In return I got a bunch of Holy F%$&ing $#!& good cards. I'm talking mega-awesome. I also got this Finest autograph of Rich Thompson I won in a contest.
Up next a short and sweet trade with Thorzul. He had a couple of Goudey SP's I needed, I had a couple of Heritage cards he needed. Thorzul was kind enough to throw in this Brian McCann SP Authentic with Mecha damage as well.
Third package was from Capewood's Collections. This is kind of a strange trade, basically Dinged Corners posted a weird Jeff Kent Fairfield Monstrocity and when all was said and done I ended up with a package from Capewood. The story is too long to tell now, but let's just say this package is all about the Chippers.
Finally I got a package out of nowhere from Steve at White Sox Cards. I sent him some stuff out of the blue a while back so why not? Instead of a card here is a cartoon Steve sent:
Well, I would hope the cards were set aside before I obtained them because otherwise Steve snuck in my house and snagged a few of my cards to send me. I saw no cards I had already in this package other than some old Hoops cards (everyone sends me hoops), so Steve, ya done good. Better than you know. That White Sox pile I have put aside just got a little fatter too.
I'd show more, but I have a Card of the Week post, special Election night post, Topps Target post, O-Pee-Chee Hockey post, a Topps Retro Football set post, my '80-'81 mini card post, a super special seecrit post and I'm expecting the 2009 Topps design to pop up on a message board (or elsewhere) any moment now. Kinda swamped at the moment. However, you can choose which package you want to see first:
Heartbreaking Cards of Staggering Genius
Thorzul Will Rule
White Sox Cards
Let me know who you want to see first in the comments and I'll get right on that. After all that other stuff.
