A few weeks ago, Tony sent me one of his great trade packages. It took me forever to post about it, and for that I apologize, but you know how it is with vacation...you get lazy and keep procrastinating ! Now that I'm back at work (sigh), it's time for me to do some catching up.
Anyway, Tony was kind enough to spend some time looking at my wantlist and knocking off a bunch of 80s and 90s needs. And of course, on top of that, he added some of his famous oddball finds !
ANd to think I'm still missing some Alomar base cards...The Select is a little strange, though, as you can see that there clearly isn't enough space on that right side for a multi-exposure shot. But hey, it's still quite nice, and it reminds me of the Donruss Spirit of the game one :
Some Update needs
Tony has a healthy collection of in-person autographs, and I'm the lucky recipient of a couple of Dave Stiebs !
Oddballs ! I love that George Bell pop-up.
Those are from the 86 Topps All Stars set. Simple, efficient design. Dave Stieb looks kinda creepy, though. Or maybe it's just his evil twin.
Always happy to add a Danny Ainge card. Regardless of the photo they choose, you always know he'll look like he's about to complain or whine about something.
Set needs, O Pee Chee and Diamond Kings round all this out !
There were many more, but this is the Readers Digest edition.
Thanks a lot, Tony, for once again putting so much thought in your package and including a ton of set needs and tough to find (for me anyway) oddballs !
