Winnings from It's Like Having My Own Card Shop

Daniel, the proprietor of It's Like Having My Own Card Shop, recently asked a question to the blogging community about the last time we purchased a Beckett magazine. I volunteered my answer and he decided to give away some cards to a group of random bloggers to thank us for participating. I wasn't expecting anything in return, but free cards are cool. But then I saw this comment:
So, I sent off a quick e-mail suggesting Daniel send my cards to JediJeff.

Then I found a PWE in my mailbox with the following note inside:
Daniel is a swell guy. I'm not sure what he's referring to about the Russell, but it seems like a good enough reason for me to retaliate and send this one Goldy card to him that I've been sitting on for most the summer.

Let's take a gander at the cards that came with the nice note.
 Man, I remember when this Carlos Marmol rookie was all the rage in P-town.  Now I finally have a copy of my own!
 Speaking of being all the rage...  Brett Jackson, Tyler Colvin and Andrew Cashner were supposed to form the core of the team which would break the World Series drought on the north side of Chicago. Then Tom Ricketts hired Theo Epstein, Jed Hoyer and Jason McLeod.   Fast forward about six years or so and . . .
 Yep, the hiring of that triumvirate gave Cubs fans something to celebrate!  Woo-Hoo!
 Daniel, thanks for the cards!  Totally unnecessary, but very much appreciated. I will hit you back as soon as my schedule allows for a quick run to the post office!


  1. Nice celebration card with at least part of "Cubs Win!" showing in the background.

  2. Those are all beauties! But yeah, 'Cubs Win!' is an excellent moment captured on a card.

  3. Glad you got liked the cards! No need to send anything back.
