My Secret Santa gift came a little while back, but I try to be a rule follower so I kept it all wrapped up until this morning.
|That's a high quality wrapping job right there!|
Let's start with the note first:
Hmmm... perhaps I should have signed the note with the gift I sent out. Silly me, I thought it was supposed to stay secret. Hello, my name is P-town Tom and I'm new to the Secret Santa game. No matter, I think the blogger who received my gift seems happy enough.
Boom! Right off the bat we start with a heavy hitter!
This is my 76th different Brooks Kieschnick card and my seventh certified auto of his. Great start!
Here's the former fourth most wanted card on my wanted list: 2011 A&G #32, Dirk Hayhurst.
Speaking of funny cards, here's the most wanted card from my list:
This was my second most wanted card and it's a beauty: '96 Stadium Club #53, Jim Bullinger.
Here's a couple of former Cubs. Starlin did okay in New York last year and I really think Jorge will finally come into his own in Kansas City this summer.
This next card is super thick and is beautifully framed.
The last two cards go into my Kerry Wood collection, which now stands at 488.
The last card is another Kerry Wood relic, which puts my Wood relic total at twenty-three. This is only my third Wood wood relic . . . if that makes any sense. The rest are either ball or jersey relics.
I'd like to send a big thank you out to Daniel, from It's Like Having My Own Card Shop, for piecing this perfect package together for me! Also, thank you to Matt, from BWTP, for organizing this year's card exchange.
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to you all!
