A PWE Out of the Blue

Earlier this week an expected PWE landed in my mailbox. [Honestly, aren't surprise mail days the best?]

Within this PWE was a nice note from a fellow Cub fan and blogger, Matt.

Take a gander at this beauty:
I've been eyeballing this Karl Olson card from 2006 Topps Heritage for quite sometime now. I never pulled the trigger as I was hoping to randomly catch one at below market value on Ebay. Instead, Matt surprised me with the card in a plain white envelope.  Most excellent!

Matt made it up from the east coast to Chicago recently to experience the Cubs convention. He had an extra ticket and he invited me to tag along! Unfortunately, I had all kinds of activities planned for that weekend. Obviously, he's a pretty super guy.

Thanks for the autographed card, Matt. It's certainly the centerpiece of my Karl Olson player collection now!
