I sent Kaz, the proprietor of This Way to the Clubhouse, a little sampling of Mets cardboard last week and he returned the favor and then some.
Topps Archives Reserve? Whaaaaaat? Shiny and vintage-esque within the same product? Wow.
I miss Ernie, but time stands still for no man. Luckily we have nice cardboard to remind ourselves of the good times.
I have the Chris O'Donnell card from this insert set and now I've got Jeff Garlin, too! I wonder if Eddie Vedder has one? That would be a nice get.
Addy! Part of me hopes he comes up short in the All-Star voting, because Corey Seager is more deserving in my eyes. This card is a repeat, so it'll go in the PC binder. I'm still working the Wrigley Field insert set. Hit me up for a trade if you have any you can spare!
Fukudome collection. That's a nice number, because it reminds me of the size of the Topps Traded sets of the 1980's.
Last up, we have Future/Retro card from 2000 Bowman of Mr. Kerry Wood. I think the Wood collection is probably the one I've enjoyed building the most over the years, because it's been largely blogger supported.
467 cards in that collection and 228 have come from trades. I actually give credit to the blogger who sends me the card in the spreadsheet each time I log a card. Nearly half are from the blog world. Thanks, everyone!
And thank you, Kaz, for a great assortment of Cubs cards! You really out did yourself!
