Wait. I won something?

Isn't it great when you win a contest but forget about it?  I know I enter a bunch, because the cardsphere is pretty flush with giveaways at times, but I'm usually on the outside looking in.  So, I guess I just assume that I lose every time.
 This time was different though, because I won AND I commented in that post.
 But I still forgot.  My mind is obviously slipping.
  The above cards were are contest winnings from BWTP. Matt has to be one of the most generous bloggers out there, right? I mean, hey, he once took on the great JBF and lived to tell about it! That alone should put him in the Top 5 of all time. #BOAT

The Prior is numbered to 25. (No Gavin, it's not a Christmas card.) The Lester is my first Topps acetate card and is numbered 09/10. I actually think the back looks cooler than the front, but I like my Jon Lester to be lefthanded.

The Addison Russell, from his Oakland days, is numbered to 199 and is my favorite from this prize package. I have long been watching Addy's autos on Ebay and just have never pulled he trigger. Of the Cubs regular starters, Addison was the last guy I needed an autograph from. Now I can check that one off my list!

 Thanks for the contest and the great cards, BWTP!

P.S. - Happy Bday to my sis!
