The Hits from Dave

I posted earlier some of the great cards I received from Dave. You can read about them here. Today I'm showing the hits that were in the package.

Donaldason relic and Huckaby autograph.

And two Daniel Norris signatures are better than one.

78 Topps # 149 Jerry Garvin RC.

Now you may be wondering why this is a hit. 

Yup, a 42 year old piece of gum still attached to the back of the card. Wonder how this would grade.

Nice additions to my expanding Blue Jays collection.

Christmas Cards 2019

I received Christmas cards in the mail from friends and family. Also received Christmas gift cards. But here are the Christmas cards of the sports card variety,

Will just show hits as I think everyone is tired of seeing base.

From the bonus pack of OPC Platinum.

One hangar box had 1 pack of series 1 and 2 packs of series 2. The other pack was reversed.

A little underwhelming but there is my Christmas 2019 card haul.

Happy New Year 2020

Been a while since I've posted. Same as everyone else, life gets in the way. I'm going to try to hopefully post more during this year.

I'm going to start with this overdue mail post. For the last few years, I participated in Tribecards Pack-A Daily-Circus. Basically, a pack was opened each day of the baseball season. You could pick a team or players (different format in different years) At the end, all the cards were sent to you. I was able to increase my Blue Jays  collection greatly. This year, there was an open call to anyone to choose a team to receive cards of.

This is the 600 count box I received in the mail. It was sent on Black Friday from Arkansas and I received it the following Friday. On a sidenote, We ordered something on Black Friday and we received it the next Thursday--from 71 miles away and in the same country.

Also included was this custom card of Dave of Tribecards.

Some of the "big" cards I received.

Some coins to fill the box.

I'll be posting more of the contents of this box in the coming days.
