I've got a couple of great trade packages to cover today, the first of which came unexpectedly from Commishbob of The Five Tool Collector. Bob caught me totally out of the blue with a random act of kindness when he sent me the Dwight Evans buyback he pulled from a pack of 2017 Topps. As if that wasn't enough, I found a nice little stack of '59 Topps baseball in the mailer alongside Dewey!
I can't thank you enough Bob for this wonderful surprise mailer! I already felt guilty that I hadn't reciprocated for the wonderful TBT Bogaerts card you sent me last season, but now I'm really in your debt. I don't know what I could possibly send you to make up for this but I'm going to have a look around here...
The (Pedestrian) Collector. I only got in touch with Chris and began following his blog recently and he's already hit me up here with a nice stack of cards. Like Bob, Chris' package also contained a buyback (1975 Topps Nelson Briles) that made my franken-set.
top scorers in the NHL for the '82-83 season, but noted that it was pretty beat up. Well, Chris came through with a nice condition upgrade for me, score!
Thanks Chris for the great package, I've got a small stack going already for you, and am really going to try to make a push to add some more cards to it and get it in the mail this coming week. I'm notoriously slow but I like to think that I always come through in the end.
A couple of great packages there indeed, just the latest examples of the amazing generosity that exists in this hobby we enjoy. Thanks again gents!
