Everybody's favorite dime box aficionado, Nick, sent be another high quality PWE yesterday. If you're ever looking to make my day with cardboard, then just follow this template:
1. First add in current Cubs.
Over the last couple of years I've adopted a philosophy of trading for current product rather than purchasing. Receiving cards of Edwards, Rondon, Soler, Lester and Bryant are always guaranteed to make me smile. Don't forget the cards of guys like Hendricks, Montero, Ross, Fowler and Coghlan. I love them all . . . all the way down to the third string catcher.
2. Add a touch of vintage or vintage-esque cards. (The Lester fits more in category number one, than here, but that's not the way I planned it when snapping the photos.)
3. Include a card for one of my player collections.
Kerry Wood, but I also collect Ryno, the VOGELMONSTER, Kosuke Fukudome, and Brooks Kieschnick.
4. Throw in something to help with one of my set builds.
I'm a set builder at heart, at least that's way I came into this hobby back in 1988. Now I'm chasing things a little bit more interesting than junk wax. Exhibit A: The Conlon Collection!
Thanks for the sweet package, Nick!
And thanks to you, the reader, for stopping by. Enjoy the weekend!
