Yes, I'm a recipient of one of the Junior Junkie's padded yellow mailers from Louisiana. T.J. and I didn't have a trade history until he reached out to me about a month ago. It was a slow developing trade, but well worth the wait on my end.
Now, that's my kind of blogger.
good guy list.
The first thing I noticed in the package was a nice brick. It was a 1994 Williamsport Cubs team set from the short season New york-Penn League.
Geremi Gonzalez burst onto the scene in 1997 and pitched well that year for a bad Cubs team.
Next up we make a stop to the Kerry Wood player collection. I have the two gold bordered cards, but not the silver.
Oooooh, shiny! I love the International Parallels from Bowman. I prefer the United States' flag to the other varieties: maps or state flags. This is also one of my earliest cards of Kerry on cardboard (1997).
number 387 in my ever growing collection. I may reach 400 yet!
I already own a copy of this card, but it wasn't on my checklist . . . and that really bothers me. I wonder how many other cards have snuck through my system.
For the record, the false statement on the card is #1. He had 7 strikeouts in 7 and a third innings in 1995. I thought it was #2, but I went back and checked and although Wood went 6 and 7 for Orlando in 1997, he finished up with 10 wins and 9 losses for the ENTIRE season. Technicalities all around.
number 758 in my collection. It's beautiful and makes great use of the horizontal layout. I can only find one flaw with this card: faux stirrups. I can't believe Ryne Sandberg would wear such things. Ugh.
Thanks for the cards T.J.! I've got some Mariners set aside for you, and a couple of Griffeys I think you're really going to like! They'll be out to you shortly!
