I've mentioned on the blog how I'm building a binder full of cards commemorating the Cubs World Series Championship and this package was to contain 100+ Cubs Topps Now cards which Matt, from Once a Cub, had been purchasing for me.
As we all know, these Topps Now cards are not cheap, especially when you're purchasing 100+. So, I did some shopping on the internet and set out around P-town on two separate occasions. My goal was to buy Cubs World Series swag to send to Matt as a thank you for all of his efforts and to compensate somewhat for the finances he committed to such a project. Matt lives on the east coast, so I was happy to go shopping and try to find some unique items he wouldn't be able to find in his area.

Instead, the box is big enough for my two younger cats to enjoy. They have been sitting/playing in the box almost non-stop since I opened it.
Yeah, cats are crazy.

Besides the Topps Now cards, which was all I was expecting, here is my favorite:
The whole package has got me thinking I can take over Rhashan's job as Director of Smiles.
Thanks for the package, Matt! At sometime during the fall, once all the Cubs World Series cards from all the various sets are released, I'll do a post of my World Series binder. That's a post I'm really excited about writing!
