The cards within the business style envelope were protected by a brochure for the Louisville Slugger Museum and Factory. I hit up the factory and absolutely loved the tour. If you're ever in Kentucky I would definitely suggest it.
A Heritage box top was the first thing that slid out of the brochure. RYNO! . . . In a Phillies uniform. Bleck.
But hey, it still goes in the collection! Honestly, I'm glad Sandberg is not the manager of the Cubs. I would have hated to see him not succeed like many of his talented managerial predecessors who also came up short, like Lou Piniella and Dusty Baker. And while we're being honest... it's the Cubs... and they've been bad. Ryno would not have been given much to work with. His legacy as a Cub would have been tarnished and that would have been VERY tough to take.
After adding the 2001 Donruss Classics card the Sandberg collection now stands at 758 unique cards. The KW is a dupe, but numbered die cuts are pretty sweet and the card is greatly appreciated!
Lastly, I read that Chris Denorfia is dealing with some hamstring issues, which may mean at Matt Szczczczczczur may make the Cubs opening day roster.
If you don't know his story, and you have about 11 minutes to kill, then watch the video. Quite a young man.
Thanks for the cards Gavin! I literally have your return package sitting on the passenger seat of my car... it's actually been there for two days as I've been trying my best to make it to the Post Office. Sometimes life gets in the way. Hold on, it'll make it to you in short time!
