Early last week when I was putting the last of my group break packages together to mail out I received 3 rather large packages from Crinkly Wrappers, the Call of Cardboard and blog reader Scott Fendley. With some much goodness inside each box it's taken me a little time to sort through and scan the cards, but I wanted to share what each of these awesome guys sent me.
We'll start with Ted @ Crinkly Wrappers. We have gone back and forth sending each other stuff. I recently sent him some Blue Jays and Nationals along with a few Topps WWE relics and in return he sent me a big ol stack of Braves along with some Garbage Pail Kids Flashback cards & 2010 WWE cards I needed to complete my sets. I'm still missing a few cards from each set, but the want list is a lot smaller now. Ted also sent me a card that I thought was very cool, especially since I just finished at the time helping my brother list a lot of vintage baseball cards on eBay for his boss. Take a look:
Chris @ the Call of Cardboard recently participated in my October group break for the first time. We e-mailed back and forth about a few things. He ended up sending me a nice stack of Braves cards as well which 99.9% of them I didn't have. I keep saying I'm going to post my master Braves collection on my blog, but at this rate I simply don't have the time. I'm doing good just to catalog the cards I'm buying!
One day a few weeks ago I received a message from reader Scott Fendley stating he had a lot of Braves to send me and he wanted my mailing address. A week or so later I got a medium sized box in mail chocked full of surprises. The first thing in the box was a generous pile of cards for my new side collection of pitchers depicted batting. I haven't posted them yet, but they will soon be found here. He also sent me a nice stack of Braves players along w/ some cards of Josh Hamilton and others. The Braves cards were of current and former players with some of them being refractors, serially numbered inserts and even a few Chipper Jones jersey cards. Here are few of my favorites:
To be completely honest I'm blown away by the generosity of everyone...and not just these guys. Ever since I started this blog in February I've been amazed by so many people. I really appreciate the effort put into these packages and I hope I can return the favor soon.
