The above smattering of cards was delivered last week and were courtesy of Marc from Remember the Astrodome. Between work, hosting breaks and getting ready for a camping trip this weekend I just haven't had time to do much blogging, however I wanted to take a moment to publicly thank Marc for the cards.
I decided to skip the annual Gypsy Queen set for the first since it debuted in 2011. This decision was made before the COVID-19 pandemic hit and threatened the 2020 baseball season...and as a result the 2020 baseball card season as well. To date I've not bought a single pack of 2020 GQ so these cards of Freddie Freeman and new Braves catcher, Travis D'Arnaud represent the first new GQ cards in my Braves collection.
I opened my first pack of 2020 Topps Stickers earlier today as well so I'm excited to see the Mike Soroka card in the package. I still think he is going to help solidify and anchor the rotation for years to come...plus these sticker cards have a fun design.
I honestly can't remember if I have the included Donruss, Heritage, Archives or Opening Day cards, but I do look forward to sitting down and updating my Google Sheets file.
Marc, if you're reading I'll try my best to have a package out to you. Thanks again for sending these my way.
