I have a Secret Admirer?
Huh. I recently passed over 100,000 page views and now I've collected my first admirer from afar. Nice!
Let's see what my secret admirer sent me!
We have some more recent edition of Topps plus a Bobby Hill from 2003, a Topps Total card from the same year, a '91 Upper Deck card of Shawon Duntson, and two card from the 1992 Topps set.
But, that's not all! Jake Arrieta now has a lumberjack beard and Welly is doing his thing for the Diamondbacks, but they are still two of my favorites.
Speaking of favorites: Reed Johnson is cutting his way through a flock of venomous sea gulls to rob an opponent of extra bases. It's my blog and I can say sea gulls have a lethal bite if I choose to. I didn't get 100,000 page views for nothing!
Lastly, my two favorite cards from the envelope . . .
I went through all the cards and cross checked them against my Cubs FrankenSet and I found that the following cards pictured below all had parallels in the set, except the Marlon Byrd, which is just the base.
So, my secret admirer was turned away in those attempts. I do love me some parallels!
But, two did make the cut:
I'm not sure who my unidentified admirer is, but I'd like to thank you for reading my blog and donating some cards to my collection!
