Shipping all your Cubs cards to me!
A Cracked Bat, did in this case. She has become a very reliable trade partner over the last few months and she mentioned recently that she had some 2015 Heritage and a few other cards to send my way. So, I started setting aside some Tigers for her and then . . . BAM . . . a flat-rate USPS box landed on my door step.
I'm guessing it's easier to clean the unwanted cardboard out of a collection than to try to find room to pack it all? Hey, I'm okay with that!
Woo-Hoo! Some more 2015 Topps. I'm doing pretty good for not buying one pack of the stuff.
The Soriano die-cut is not out of place... Sori has had many different die cuts in the last decade, but that Rick Wilkins from the early 90s is almost before its time.
Wood player collection. Score!
Ryno player collection! This Ryne Sandberg card is from the 2012 Panini Cooperstown set. I think every player collection needs a nice card like this one.
Here's some more Panini... Mr Cub makes an appearance as usual, but he's joined by Billy Herman, Joe Tinker, and Phil Cavarretta. It's nice to see some of the other bigger names get some love.
What did Todd Wellemeyer do to deserve being a Diamond King?
Speaking of looking young . . .
No, Albert, I haven't forgotten about you. Many others have lost you in the shuffle behind Baez, Alcantara, Soler, Russell, and Bryant, but I think you are poised for a big year for the Tennessee Smokies with Kyle Schwarber in 2015.
I thought this last card would be a fitting end to such a great trade package.
Good luck with the move to Michigan, Julie. I'll be sure to send you a house warming present consisting of rectangular pieces of cardboard toward the latter part of May!
