I'm in the midst of quite the mail week. It is a cool feeling when people just send you cards out of the blue. My scanner is working overtime this week which is a beautiful thing.
A couple weeks back Julie
hit me up on Twitter to ask me if I would like this card.....
Yes Please!!!!! This jersey from Ginter even has a nice stripe. Nice change of pace from this set as many of the relics are very boring.
Of course Julie didn't stop at just the Ginter relic.
I'm a sucker for any portrait/canvas cards out there. Topps Gallery has long been a favorite of mine. It kind of looks like a little league field in the background.
I had to actually go look this set up to jog my memory. 2003 Fleer Splendid Splinters is one of about 9 billion short lived sets in this era. Love receiving cards like this.
Upper Deck channeling its inner Studio.
Bazooka was kind of fun for a short period of time. I think UD Collectors Choice or Topps Total will be forever my favorite budget sets, but Bazooka provided a nice change of pace.
Julie really hit me with a bunch of short lived sets. Here is cardboard God Jason Kendall.
A very young Aramis Ramirez. Private Stock would have been so much better if they didn't distort the backgrounds.
Some current Buccos.......for now.
Julie sent what I think was the full team set of Chrome. The Marte and Cole were my favorites this year. Throwback Bucco uniforms always make good cardboard.
I haven't done a whole lot with the Bowman sets the last couple of years. Nice to receive some Platinum in trade.
Love the Jackie Robinson day card.
One of these years I need to catalog my Bay collection.
A little vintage...Carl Taylor looks like he is about to throw up.
I think this Neil Walker might be my favorite of the whole bunch. The team name on this card is way too big but it is such a great shot.
Thanks for thinking of me when you pulled the Cutch Julie. I'm working on a return shot soon.
Thanks for reading.
