I've often been amazed at the generosity of my fellow bloggers and the past 2 days have been no exception.  I've had several transactions with many that read this blog, but Dennis from Too Many Verlanders and I haven't crossed paths all that much.

Sometime in 2011 I won a contest he was holding for a set of football cards.  Very cool I thought.  Time passed and I forgot about it as I was busy chasing other cards.  Then 2 days ago I received a large "brick" in the mail chocked full of Braves and Panthers cards.  Inside was a note apologizing for the delay in getting me the set I won as well as something to the effect of you'll probably like the other package better.  I thought what is he talking about?  This box alone was cool enough as I saw several cards that I didn't already have.

Then yesterday I got a large bubble mailer from Dennis full of more cards.  It still didn't hit me that this was the "other package" he referred to in his note.  I couldn't believe what I saw in the mailer.  Take a look:

Like I said earlier the first box full of Braves and Panthers was generous enough, but to throw these beauties in too?  I'm speechless.  It's not like we had a trade in the works and he just made the deal sweeter.  He sent these out of the blue.  Of course I am trying to put together a nice package to send in return, but I'm still amazed.  Thank you Dennis.  This is just one of the many reasons that I'm glad I got into the blogging game and continue to keep chugging along.

  1. Aw, you know I wouldn't send my Panthers stuff to anyone else. Glad you liked them, and I'll be quicker to get stuff to you next time.
