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!
Glad you liked the cards! The Balsamo was definitely the one I was hinting towards, but it's good to know that there were several new ones in there for ya.ReplyDelete
Very cool. That Balsamo is the bees knees.ReplyDelete
Y'all entered my vocabulary in recent years thanks to country music. Maybe I'm rubbing off on you?ReplyDelete
