Go Bears! - a Crackin' Wax Special

Chris, at Crackin' Wax, is always busting open packs and listing the cards that don't fit in his personal collection in his "Take My Cards!" section.  To claim some cards, all you have to do is send him a SASE and he'll send what you have flagged.  Pretty generous and very cool!

I flipped through his offerings recently and found a Junior Lake card.  Junior played shortstop for the Peoria Chiefs back in 2009 and is now a thirdbase prospect for the Cubs.  He had a heckuva an arm when he played with the Chiefs, but he didn't always know where the ball was going once he released it, as his forty-two errors that season can attest! 

I also found some Chicago Bears cards to fill out my "order" from Crackin' Wax.  These are the only football cards in my collection that are younger than twenty years old.  It's been awhile!

The Bears are 7-1 at the midway point in the season and they put on a show last weekend versus the Titans.  But, they will be tested tonight against the 7-1 Texans and next weekend when they match up with the 6-2 49ers. 
Good luck to Brian Urlacher, Lance Briggs, Devin Hester, Matt Forte, and Jay Cutler!  Go Bears!

And thanks to Chris for the free cards!  They've found a good home!


  1. YIKES! All those coool Bears cards for free!? It must be your lucky day. Let's hope they can win tonight and not crumble under the pressure of their winning record.

  2. Glad you're enjoying your new cards! GO PACK! :P
