Set Help from Waxaholic

Captain Canuck, the friendly blogger from the north and author Waxaholic, showed how appropriate his blog's title is with a recent trade package.  I was expecting sixteen '87 Topps card for my set, but he laid down some 1990 Donruss on me as well.
 Sure, the above picture may just look like nine cards in a standard page, but I assure you it is not.
Captain Canuck filled nine team bags and then taped them together to fit inside a 10"x12" padded mailer. Very creative!  He did a ton of damage to my '90 Donruss want list. 168 Donruss cards in all.  Now I only need twenty-two cards, but two of them are Ken Griffey and the Bartlett A. Giamatti tribute card.

What's even better was I was watching a lot of the "Grand Slammers" on eBay and Captain Canuck nearly knocked out the whole insert set by himself!  Woo-Hoo!

Thanks for the great surprise, Captain Canuck.  I hope the Braves I sent northward were to your liking!


  1. I have some more 1990s and 1991 Donruss from your list if you are interested.

  2. glad they could help bud.

    I don't know about down south, but here in Canada, thin is in. It's a helluva lot cheaper for me to send those cards like that in an envelope, then stack them normally in a box or two bricks in a bubbleope.
    Think small.....

    1. I'll have to remember that the next time I ship in bulk. Thanks!
