My wife attended a conference for work about a year ago in downtown Houston. She was actually in town when the Astros clinched the World Series against the Dodgers. Pretty cool. While she was there she found some tea at a local grocery store, which she immediately fell in love with. I guess she checked all over the internet and couldn't find any and she also visited stores here in P-town trying to hunt it down. She struck out on both fronts. Laura then turned to me and asked if I knew of any bloggers in the Houston area and if I could ask them to be the middleman.
I looked through my blogger Rolodex and found Marc lives down that way. You may better know him as Bru, the man behind Remember the Astrodome. I reached out to mark, told him of the store where my wife originally purchased the tea and sent him the picture below.
A couple of weeks later I found a package from Houston in my mailbox. Nope, no tea.
It was baseball cards! Woo-Hoo! Crazy, I ask for a favor and he sends me cards! I feel like I should be the one sending him something for his troubles. This community is so great.
There was some set help:
A shiny Donruss Optic Rizzo was joined by a Topps Fire Rizzo:
I was happy to find a pair of Albert Almora cards. He had a nice campaign in 2018.
Lastly, we have another Sandberg to add to the player collection!
900th different Ryne Sandberg in my collection. I was hoping to hit that mark sometime this year and this mini from A&G marks the milestone!
Thanks for the fabulous Cubs cards, Marc. And thanks again for trying to help out my wife.
