A Pink Padded Mailer?

Well, that's a first. I've seen the white, gray, and the standard yellow, but never pink.  This must be a padded parallel #'d to 50 or something crazy.
 Hey, look at that!
 Tony Burbs, from Wrigley Roster Jenga, sent me 107 new Conlon cards for my set build.  Score!

Here's my favorite card from the Conlon Bomb:
I think the reason I love this set is two-fold: anecdotal history and the photography. This card is a great example of both.

Thanks for the help, Tony!  I'll be sending you some Cubs before too long.

If you have some Conlon laying around please drop me a line.  I still need . . . oh, a thousand cards or so!  Lastly, check your mailbox for the pink padded mailer, because I was able to open it without damaging it and it is way too cool not to pass around the blogosphere.


  1. It's actually numbered /10, so...

    But in all seriousness, I'm glad they were of use to you. I bought a box many moons ago and the doubles have been laying around, taunting me with their space-taking ever since. When you said you were building the set, I was irrationally-joyed.

  2. I have one of those pink mailers in my stash. I do believe it came from Weston at Fantastic Catch. I should use it soon and then we all just keep reusing the two of them. Whoever ends up with both in their possession should win something.

  3. Hughie Jennings is what Bryce Harper means by making baseball fun again, haha.
