It's a drizzly Saturday morning, but I have my coffee in my favorite TOOTBLAN mug and a package to open on this raining day!
Today's cards are courtesy of Tim, from I Love the Smell of Cardboard in the Morning. And I do, I do love the smell of cardboard in the morning. Although, I personally don't think chrome cards smell like much. Flagship has a certain smell and I love the old school aroma of junk wax, but that is NOT your signal to send me your junk wax. I repeat: Do NOT send me your junk wax.
Tim is part of the #SuperTraders group and I send him all of my Rays when I can and I'll also slip in a few Yankees from time-to-time. He returned fire with some Cubs! Woo-Hoo!
Ryne Sandberg collection.
Here's what my collection is missing in a big way:
Both of these relic cards contain pinstripes and those are my favorite kind. I also like that the card company paired the jersey swatches with Sandberg wearing the home white uniforms. Too many times I see a jersey card with the pictured player's uniform not matching the actually relic. These two are great looking cards and I'm thinking about incorporating them into a new display I've been tinkering with for my man room.
Tim, this was a fantastic package and it was clearly evident that you went to great lengths to pick out only cards that fit my collection. Thank you for going the extra mile and making my morning!
