Gotz some mail!

It is always nice to come home from a long day of work and find a nice brown envelope (or two) in the mail. It is definitely a good feeling that you finally have a free pack to open, and quite frankly after a frantic initial month of blogging, it gets a little difficult to remember the trades that I have made, so it is always a nice surprise in each envelope.

So tonight I had the fortune to come home to two, the first package coming from Jeremy at (they will now!) Jeremy kicked me down some Sox for my ever-increasing binder pages, got some nice retros as well as Francona, Lowell, Papi, and a few series 1 commons that I need to try to finish off my second full set. If you have not already, you should receive a package from me very soon. Everybody make sure to check out the blog and bookmark that address so you only need to type it in once!

The second package is one that I have been looking forward to for some time, it comes from Jeffrey at Card Junkie . Below are some of the cards. I apologize for my lack of scanner yet, this is the poor mans version!

These are a couple of the career legends career best series, Christy Mathewson and Ty Cobb and his bionic arm. The best, and worst thing about these cards is that I am ONE short of the 15 card set, Mr Lou Gehrig. It is always the last card that is the hardest to find, so if ANYBODY can locate this card for me, this set collector will feel very good to close the book on one of many unfinished sets.

These are exciting because they represent the first of the Turkey Reds since my official turkey hunt began a couple weeks back. Connor Jackson, Cole Hamel, and Derek Jeter (bum) and look what else? A 3-month SP Jacoby Dustin! Doing his Dr Evil impression none-the-less.
Also included were several more commons in helping to complete my second complete set. Inching ever closer thanks to you guys!
As always, thank you for supporting our blog and here's to more trades down the road!


  1. Glad I could help and thanks for helping me with Topps series 2.

  2. I'm glad I could help you out a little. You were very generous with your trade. Thanks a lot. I loved the cards you sent. The little "Dr. Evil" pose looks cute.
