Another blogger must have used this title before, right? It's just too easy not to.
Tony Burbs is the author of the Cub-centric blog title Wrigley Roster Jenga. AND . . . he just happens to live in the suburbs of Chicago. I mean, this blog post title is just too perfect!
Is there anything better than a package from a fellow team collector? Nope. I don't think so. I think even the great Night Owl might agree.
Let's see what he sent. Oooooh, I love me hand written note . . . in cursive no less!
Here's a half-dozen Cubs cards.
No lie, I almost bought this Soler card yesterday at my LCS for three quarters, but I put it back because I thought it was overpriced. Not Anthony Rizzo overpriced, but still pretty high.
Matt Karchner for Jon Garland? Really?
Fabulous Foil, Batman!
I must say I do prefer the modern team cards to vintage, floating heads or not.
Dale Long? Honestly, I don't know if I have this card or not. My vintage collection, especially the 1950s is very hit and miss. I'll have to check on it and get back to y'all. (Can I say "y'all"? I did spend nine days in the South recently.)
Boom. I think I found it! Tony most certainly was certain I did not own this TTM inscribed auto of Tony Balsamo.
Tony Burbs sent a TTM to Tony Balsamo earlier this spring and had great success! Thanks for spotting me a Balsamo TTM! What a sweet addition to my hit box!
Tony, my Cubs doubles are slowing building again. I'll hit you up again sometime soon! Thanks, the cards were most appreciated!
