I've sent cards to David in Alaska on a couple of separate occasions. He doesn't have blog, but he's solid trader and always sends some really nice cardboard in return. So nice in fact that I always feel indebted to him and must keep an eye out for new cards. This time was no different, although it was certainly a bit more random.
How so? Well, for starters this yellow padded envelope came unannounced and without a note. I had no idea it was coming, yet here it is with all of it's glorious contents. So, let's dig in.
Karl Olson collection is almost complete! The 1952 Topps, red back version, will be the last to fall.
More actual vintage! (The Fleer team sticker isn't vintage, but it'll be stored in the first page of one of my binders with other Cubs team stickers.) The Ron Santo is certainly a sharp looking card on the front.
RANDOMNESS ALERT! A magnet?
Back to cards . . .
PC of one of these gentleman (left), yet I somehow have almost as many cards of the non-PC guy (right). I don't mind though!
And here's a random Bipping times two!
I haven't seen one of these before.
Speaking of random . . . RANDOMNESS ALERT!
How glorious is that card? There's actually a 110 card set that was put out in 1992 and there are some sets, a wax box, and singles on Ebay. I have mine though and it is tremendous!
What a great way to cap a package full of Cubs and randomness.
David, thank you for the cards! Let me know if there's anything special I can hunt down for you!
