Those were just the tip of the iceberg, as Nick really has a way of cramming a lot of cardboard into a single plain, white envelope. Here are some of the other goodies I found inside...
Finally, one last card, a buyback!
1969 Topps #542 - Bob Aspromonte
Bob Aspromonte's 1969 card. This one came as a box-topper in 2018 Heritage, though I'm sure Nick probably plucked it out of one of those insane discount boxes he always seems to find. Wherever it was sourced from, I sure am glad he decided to send it to me. While maybe not politically correct in this day and age, that's certainly a unique shoulder patch that Bob is sporting.
Will this buyback make the franken-set?
Nick, I apologize that it took me so long to properly thank you for this great delivery of cardboard. It's amazing not only that you were able to cram so much into a single envelope, but also that every single card was an absolutely enjoyable keeper for my collection. I'll have something headed back your way in the coming days...
For now, I'm off to see if the Bruins can somehow rally in the third here. Ugh.
