The Magical Pack Genie

It seems that I have been struck by The Magical Pack Genie. I received a mysterious package in the mail today. It was addressed simply as The Magical Pack Genie. I wasn't expecting anything by any Genie today, so I was a bit perplexed. I normally don't open strange looking packages addressed to me, but since the Unabomber is safely in ADX Florence, I decided to proceed.

The rest of the return address looked familiar, so I have my suspicions. This also helped in my decision to open the package. Inside, I found the 2007 Topps 52 cards of Amos Dewon Day and Joshua Dean Fields. Then there was a package that I had not seen since I was rummaging through the candy aisle at the local independent drugstore, which I found out will no longer be filling prescriptions after this month.

A package of 1986 Donruss All-Stars! Only this was no ordinary package. No, this package is special. Not only was it given to me by a genie, the magical fiery spirit deemed the package fit to have not one, but two Carlton Fisks inside its cellophane.

I haven't opened the package, so how do I know this? There is a Carlton Fisk pop-up card in the front of the package and I can clearly see the name Fisk on the back of the last card in the package.

I'm extremely pleased by this generosity straight out of thin air. May the Magical Pack Genie grant you your fondest wishes soon. Just don't expect anything, it will never come that way. This Magical Pack Genie thrives on the element of surprise.
