Peoria did not experience a white Christmas this year. We had two decent snows in November and one of those was fierce enough to force a "snow day" for all the local schools.
January? Ten inches fell last Saturday and another four this morning. And then I received this nice little package referencing Christmas in the mail.
I don't remember the last time Daniel and I put together a formal trade. I'll collect some Diamondbacks through random retail packs and dime boxes at card shows. Once I have enough to fill a bubble mailer, then off they go to It's like having my own Card Shop. Sometimes I'll check to see if the address is the same and other times I just cross my fingers as drop of the package at the post office.
I have this type of relationship with a dozen or so bloggers and I really enjoy the randomness of it all. Surprise cardboard can be the best type of cardboard!
Alright, enough stalling. Here's the card Daniel was alluding to in his note.
Brooks Kieschnick! And yes, Daniel, this card was new to my Kieschnick player collection. Many thanks!
Wow, that package packed quite a punch! I'll be on the lookout for Diamondback cards for you!
