I've actually already received cards thanks to the initiative. I know there are some waiting for me from Wes (my good friend Matt from Bob Walk the Plank is nice enough to serve as a post office platform), and I also got two envelopes. One from Tony (Off hiatus) and one from Brian (highly subjective). So yay !
Let's first have a look at what Tony was nice enough to send my way :
Plenty of minis, some with A&G backs. Can't go wrong with 81 Donruss, especially with Danny Ainge on it.
More early 80s stuff, some Heritage and a very nice Carter insert (ah, 90s....). Thanks a lot Tony, many of those will be going in my binders ! I'll make sure to put some Brewers aside, as usual.
Next up, some cards from Brian. Not for our usual trades. Not for our transatlantic triple breaks. But for #SUPERTRADERS.
Autos and a relic ! Very nice Pompey chromey auto.
A little bit of everything. The Pompey Finest and Price Bowman's Best are my first taste of each issue from this year (well, last year now).
New York teams ! That Em Tunnell card is actually a 57 Topps. I'd probably be able to dwell myself in any vintage from any sport (Hockey is really cool as far as vintage goes. plenty of mustaches), but I need to try and stay focused. I really love the variety Brian sent. Lots of stuff from lots of eras.
The great thing about having a large PC is that I get a ton of very various cards for each one of them. Love that Hall of gold
Some Pat Burrell cards (including a gold SC parallel), and some Keith Hernandez.
And finally, also included was a pack of 83 O PEE CHEE, that of course appeals to my Canadian roots, and that came complete with its piece of gum (I don't think even Gavin would give it a try)Jim Kaat is actually PC, so that's cool. And it was apparently a Cruz hot pack.
Thanks a lot Brian, all of those are greatly appreciated, and thanks for hitting on a bunch of my broad collecting needs !
