Seriously, I'm tired winter. But a little ray of sunshine hit my mailbox a week or so ago from the Copper State. Daniel, from It's like having my own Card Shop, sent a surprise package with plenty of Cubs goodness.
First, let's check the note:
player collection, which now stands at 360. Nice way to start a package. The Playoff Absolute Memorabilia card from 2003 is pretty shiny and sports a nice design. It's probably my favorite of the package!
I am doing pretty "Well"-emeyer. Thanks for asking, Daniel.
Here's a couple other of my favorites from the package.
Lastly, let's take a look at those Ticket Studs mentioned in the note.
Each Ticket Stud has the date from the player's last game (Brooks, Ryan, & Reggie) or their debut (Ichiro). All were studs in their day. The cards fold up and are about the size of normal baseball cards. Convenient! I like the concept and appreciate the thought!
Thanks for thinking of me, Daniel. I'll be sure to send a return package out before too long!
