The Card Papoy. What's worse is Bieber, DipLo and Skrillex had a feature article on the NY Times website and my wife has been playing that silly song more than I can ears can tolerate. If you're interested, click on the link above. But don't say I didn't warn you. I hope she finds something new . . . soon.
Let's get to REAL cardboard, shall we? There was some great 90s cards with some truly unique shots.
Clean those cleats! And I really miss those home plate collisions.
A new one for the Dunston collection and a be-speckled Chuck McElroy from Flair. Nice.
Sometimes collectors forget what we have when we're in accumulation mode. Kevin, thanks for reminding to smell the roses! The Grace was probably my favorite card of the package.
Rynos! The one on the left is a Final Tribute card from Upper Deck Collector's Choice and the 777th different Sandberg of my collection.
Here we have some more Stadium Club and Flair featuring my grandma's favorite Cub: Mark Grace. Tight pants, blue eyes, blond hair, nice smile . . . yada yada yada.
408th Kerry Wood card. Man, I love player collection additions!
Autos? Wow! I wasn't expecting certified ink! In some ways, the hype surrounding Kris Bryant is like Corey Patterson Version 2.0 . . . just 13 years later. I'm hoping Bryant lives up to the hype. But honestly, can ANY player really live up to the hype the media lays on a player?
The DLee patch is black? When did Derrek wear black? Gasp! With the Marlins! Ahhhhh! Feesh fabric in my Cubs collection! LOL!
The Mark Prior card has a FANTASTIC swatch of fabric from the U and B of Cubs on the chest logo. I haven't seen that part of the jersey used before and I'm so glad to add this to my collection.
Lastly, a Sammy Sosa relic. I'm not the biggest of Sosa fans, because I was a K.Wood guy. (I guess the two were friendly, but never really all that close.) But this card is pretty AND unique. It features a box score from Sammy's 20th homer in the month of July back in 2008. Twenty homers in a month. Just think about that. Nuts. Absolutely nuts.
