Just when I thought I was caught up on card packages, I received an incredible six trade packages in the mail just this past week. Folks who enjoy this hobby sure are generous. Let's see some of the goods!
Baseball Card Breakdown. In fact, it's not just a card but an ornament! '87 Topps Lamar Hoyt has been transformed into Santa Claus, complete with white cloth beard and "Ho Ho Hoyt" caption. Here's a look at LaMarr hanging (came complete with hole punched at the top and string) on our Christmas tree. Hilarious stuff Gavin!
My Life in the Sports Card Hobby. Frankie's one of the younger bloggers I've encountered, but man does he have an impressive collection building already! A while back he put out a call for anyone who wanted some free cards, so of course I shamelessly commented. In return, I got a solid trio of cards, starting off with this Bowman Mookie Betts. I had the Blue and Purple parallels of this card, but not the base version until now. Perfect!
Frankie, thank you so much, I will see what I can dig up to repay your generosity.
Wish They Still Came with Bubble Gum. He'd warned me that some 2015-16 Upper Deck was headed my way, and he delivered with a pair of Bruins.
Gentlemen, thank you all for your killer packages. I hope you and your families are enjoying a wonderful holiday season!
