Every 3 or 4 monthes, Julie will send me an incredible array of cards, usually in a big box filled with a little bit of everything. She always tries to surprise me (it's always impossible to guess what'll be included in those boxes), and I always feel like a kid on Christmas morning when that happens. Such was yet again the case with that Christmas bombing filled with great spirit, laughter and generosity. This very well sums up what I think of Julie !
This here is a binder. Julie knows how much I love holograms and picked this up for me. I only had a couple from that set, so it's perfect ! And see, it's a limited edition. Of several hundred thousands, but still, it says so on the cover.
Ooooh, sticky pvc pages !
This here is a jumbo card. And I love jumbo cards. There's a lot of love in that post, actually. And it's also a great looking (giant) card all around of someone we've been talking a little bit about lately.
Gold Glovers : It's way easier to send me cards I don't have, as I've only been collecting them for a few months, and don't necessarily do everything to add them to my collection. That's why trades are great ! That Mike Schmidt swatch in the middle is really cool. And the Bowman Molina is a refractor.
Might as well get used to seeing Ichiro in a Marlins uniform, as he signed for another one year contract. Obivously Topps only had one photo (photoshoped ?) to work with. The Heritage is numbered to 999.
Kellogg's 3D, one of my all time favorites.
And then, there're absolutely random cards that always crack me up
A couple of great Vladdys and a couple of bad jokes. Welcome home Justin !
Now, for my main collecting needs :
Plenty of end of the year Blue Jays to work with, including all those parallels (the black one is numbered out of 64). There are even a couple of Chrome Update cards in there, and I seem to understand they aren't that easy to find, so thanks !
There were many more (lots of 90s goodness) but those were the ones I needed for my collection !
Thanks again Julie, can't wait for next Christmas, in 3 or 4 months !
