I could go on about how work and my personal life prevented me from doing much of anything when it came to sports cards this past week, but you didn't come here to read a bunch of complaints. You came to see cards!
Off Hiatus Baseball Cards. We've traded a few times now, but looking back on it some time had passed since we last sent any cards each others' way so I was happy to find this latest bubble mailer in my mailbox.
Obviously Tony didn't send me an original 1954 Bowman Ted Williams, but I absolutely love this '89 Bowman reprint. It's also probably the closest I'll ever get to owning an original. As vintage collectors know, Ted's card was pulled at some point during printing, making it extremely rare and coveted. Maybe someday, but for now this reprint does the trick.
Tony, as usual it was an absolute blast going through all of the great stuff you sent (every single card of which I needed). I managed to get a PWE off to you this week, but I still feel I owe you so I'm keeping an eye out and hope to replenish my Brewers trade stack soon. Thank you!
