Yeah, I'm not that observant sometimes. Wes, from Jaybarkerfan's Junk, sent me a second plain white envelope bomb last week. I didn't open it until yesterday, partly because I wasn't sure of its contents and partly because I was a little swamped time-wise.
Little did I realize that there were eight Cubs squeezed into one tiny penny sleeve just waiting to be released!
Boom! Here's the contents of the PWE bomb!
1992 Score - Mark Grace: nice picture of Grace making contact as he was so apt to do. Glad he didn't make contact with anything when he received his latest DUI. I hope you get the help you need, Mark.
2006 Fleer - Jacque Jones; and 1989 Score - Jerry Mumphrey. I was too young to remember Mumphrey playing for the Cubs, but I was a Jones fan. This card of Jones features him in the uniform of his previous team, something Photoshop would never allow these days.
I'm not quite sure I understand these 2009 Upper Deck Documentary cards. I'm guessing there's one from every game of the 2008 Cubs' season? This one just happens to feature Ryan Theriot and a 4-2 loss to the 'Stros. If the Cubs ever win a World Series I wouldn't mind something similar from that year.
1987 Topps - Steve Trout: Ahhh, my favorite card from the envelope. I love the '87 Topps design. 1988 was the year I was introduced to baseball cards, so I missed out on the wood grained borders, the rainbow-like "future stars", and being "Bipped" by Topps. Perhaps this will be the next set from the past that I try to assemble? If nothing else, it should be a cheap get!
Thanks for the surprise cards, Wes! Payback for successfully blowing up my mailbox, again, will be on its way shortly!
