Well, that second tiny package placed me on Fuji's Hit List. Fear not, loyal readers, for am alive and well. Fuji's Hit List is a list of traders he needs to send cards to or "hit back" with cards.
Honestly, I was just trying to even the score a bit. I'm not big into "one-upping" someone in a trade, but I do try my best to make sure everyone is happy with their return.
Here's the true problem though . . . I wasn't happy with what I sent Fuji. Thus, the second package. Hey, a guy's gotta sleep at night.
So in summary:
Blogger P sends Blogger F cards.
Blogger F sends return package that Blogger P sees as way more than acceptable.
To balance things out Blogger P sends another package to Blogger F hoping it would end there.
Blogger F, a stand up dude, received another package and now feels he must send another return out.
Blogger P pleads his case:
Blogger P is too late. Blogger F has already placed
Lesson learned. Trifle with Fuji and you have to deal with the consequences.
Luckily, those consequences come in form of more Cubs goodness.
Kosuke Fukudome player collection... I actually chased his cards until I fell under the spell of The Vogelmonster.
I've always found two-way players fascinating. It doesn't matter if it's high school football or high school baseball or Major League Baseball.
Kieschnick Cubs cards collection.
Look. At. This. Card.
That's a bad a$$ card.
So, yeah. Fuji is the man. He sends out cardboard like a boss. Not like a mob boss or something, although the Hit List is not something to take lightly.
Fuji. I appreciated your generosity and I yield, Good Sir.
May the Cardboard Gods bless upon you good fortunes and tidings as you break open your next blaster. (As long as I don't make the Hit List again!)
