- I busted one pack of Topps Update and pulled two Twins.
- I had another Twin sent to me in a trade package, which didn't fit any of my collections
- I sealed them up in a PWE and shipped them to my favorite Minneapolis blogger, Brian.
- The three cards, with the stamp included, might have been worth a dollar.
Not a week later a PWE finds my mailbox from Brian, of Highly Subjective and Completely Arbritary.
Here is what was inside.
I appreciate a meaningful hand-written note:
Now, let's get the BIG card out of the way first:
400-card mark, as this #404 in my Vogelbach PC. So excited!
How about some green chromey goodness? This one is numbered 73/99 and I absolutely love the way this card photographed.
So, here we sit. Either one of these cards, the Vogelmonster or the Schwarber, would have been a more than fair return on what I sent Brian. Instead, he sent both and the scales are already tipping his favor.
But, wait. There's more!
Rounded corners, creases, and stains on the back...
You know. The perfect kind of vintage!
HOF Binder, preferably a card with Asburn sporting Phillies garb. This will do wonderfully! Beautiful!
Also, in my HOF Binder was a card of Sandy Koufax from the 2011 Topps Lineage set. Nice card, but no stats on the back, and definitely not vintage.
Here we go!
What a power packed PWE. I'm simply in awe.
Luckily, Brian keeps his website up-to-date with the Arbitrary 8 and plenty of other card ideas for me to do some future card show shopping.
Thank you very much for the very thoughtful PWE, Brian.
Happy New Year to everyone!
