Yesterday a PWE landed in my mailbox and the return address read: Luis Torrens Fan Club. Hmmm... I think we all know who the president, VP, secretary, treasurer and media relations guru of the Luis Torrens Fan Club is, but if there's any doubt, then here's a quick link to ZZ's blog.
The PWE yielded some most excellent bounty.
Up first, a Dexter Fowler rookie card.
A 2019 Topps insert of Ryne Sandberg:
Ah, this card is the best! Don Zimmer, as a third base coach, swatting Sandberg on the a$$ while he rounds third.
Sandberg cards in my collection. If I were in a goal setting mood I would ramble on about how acquiring 59 more cards would put me at an arbitrary round number. Lucky for you, I'm not into setting goals in 2020.
Thanks for the surprise PWE, Zippy Zappy!
When it comes to baseball cards and the magical PWE I pride myself in reciprocating. Yet, here's a link to Zippy Zappy's recent post about his goals for 2020 wherein he writes:
Well, isn't that something? Now you see where my dilemma comes into play.
Do I send cards or do I not send cards?
Obviously, ZZ is cutting stock and maybe that's why I received the PWE. He's glad to get the cards out his house.
Is he hoping I don't send anything back?
Or maybe he's counting on me to continue my PWE ways and he's hoping I return the favor so he's forced to jettison more cardboard?
Then, there's the fallout of what happens if I do decide to send cards his way. If I send a half-dozen cards, then someone unsuspecting blogger (like @Lost_Collector) gets dumped on 15-fold because you know ZZ is not messing around when it comes to his annual goals. Can I live with that kind of guilt?
Wow. When I was young I was looking forward to 2020 because I was convinced everyone would have a flying car by then. Instead, I'm dealing with cardboard dilemmas.
Perhaps the two aren't mutually exclusive and I'll have my flying card before the year is out? Or maybe ZZ will chime in within the comments and I can stop trying to read between the lines.
Either way, I'm not quite sure what to think about 2020 so far.
Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your weekend.
