3 x 2 x 3 PWE

It's not everyday that I receive PWEs. Mainly because you can't really trust a feeble envelope to make it safely across the ocean. But one thing's for sure, it's a great way to save a few precious dollars on shipping, as the USPS is clearly brutal with their international fees. A couple of forever (international) stamps later, and here I am with an envelope filled with goodies (you can send about 25 cards that way) sent over by Jeff, at 2x3 heroes. Jeff is one of the funniest guys out there and it's always a treat to read his blog. Especially when he was offering to send that card out to me :

I suppose you need to be a Blue Jays fan to know who Devon Travis is, especially since he's been injured since the end of July. He was named Rookie of the month for April and was having a very solid year. Let's hope his shoulder surgery goes well. It's still a very nice chrome on card auto, so thanks for thinking of me Jeff !

As a White Sox collector, he also has some Big Hurt extras for my collection :

One less card to find for my 93 UD master set project. And one of the better inserts, too.

The Spirit of the game insert is also a favorite of mine. And yes, this is (former Blue Jay great) George Bell...but lookie here :

Ooooooooh. There he iiiiiiiiiiis !

I opened a box of 93 Leaf recently, so I have a few of those. But I didn't have INTENSE Frank. Great looking insert too (ah, the 90s...).

The greatest invention since French bread : holograms !

I only have something like 100 Frank Thomas cards, which means I'm missing a ton of base cards. Including those. You know I haven't been collecting someone very seriously when I'm missing Upper Deck base cards of his.

I love that Fleer card !

Jeff noticed that I added pre 1977 Mets cards to my PC, so he included that 1964 topps card. I love vintage. As a matter of fact, I've just won a major significant card on Ebay. I'll be showing it in a month or so, the time for it to make it to COMC and then to me. But I am psyched !

And finally, some Gold Glovers

Thanks a lot Jeff, I needed the vast majority of what you sent. A return package will be headed your way soon !


  1. He put the hurt on you! Something tells me you kinda like it.

  2. I see what you did there, Julie.....

  3. It would have been interesting to see what kind of numbers Travis would have put up if he stayed healthy. It would have been tough company to win ROY against Correa and Lindor, but he would have had a two month head start.
