Do you remember when David, from TribeCards, was opening a pack of cards a day and posting them on his blog? It was a huge undertaking, especially considering that he planned to sort and ship out all the cards to team collectors and the like. I was in full-on accumulation mode at the time, claimed the Cubs, and watched with glee anytime a Cubs card was pulled. It was a grand time.
Well, last weekend things got even better. The cards arrived!
Next up are the over-sized cards which were found at the bottom of the box. These are new to me, but I don't need multiple copies. I wonder if Wrigley Wax has these. Anyone else interested?
Here's four more cards which are little larger than necessary. Topps Big and '89 Donruss aren't high on my list because they are so difficult to store.
Alright, let's get to the stuff that stood out. For instance, I needed this Rick Monday for my collection. That's one fabulous looking card.
Here's a quartet of my personal favorites. Oddly enough, I have a thing for part-time players.
Here's a pair of Rated Rookies and two Topps RCs:
Old school Cubs!
King Kelly played for the Cubs franchise. Another superb addition to my collection.
There were three Rynos in the package and I needed two of them. I needed both cards from A&G.
Here's a couple of card from the 1995 Upper Deck SP set. I have no idea if every card has the blue triangle on the left side, but it works really well with the Cubs. I have to imagine it changes colors to match the team.
Here's another set I knew nothing about: 2005 Upper Deck FlyBall.
Hits? There hits in the Pack of the Day experience?
Oh, I love stickers and holograms. A page of these fillers begins everyone one of my Cubs binders and I was running low. Perfect timing!
Here's my absolute favorite card from the entire box.
Ahh, here's a great way to end a wonderful and truly generous package. An auto from David. Very nice!
few packs to the Pack a Day project back in the day, but I never expected this kind of return. David, thanks again for putting this together and sending all of those cards out!
