Trading With Stats On The Back

The second package I got in the mail today was a massive package a White Sox cards from Mark at Stats On The Back. He e-mailed me a while back and asked if I needed some specific cards. They were all cars that I needed, so I asked what he wanted in return. Mark told me to hold off on cards for him until these cards arrived. Then make a decision.

OK, they've arrived. The majority of the cards I do not have. That surprises me everytime I write that out. The few cards that I did have, I have either gotten very recently or I've had in my collection since my childhood. All in all, a very good selection of White Sox cards with a few very nice surprises! There are two head scratchers in there, but I'll get into those later in this posting.

I am very thankful for the 1970's cards and the Score subsets. I'm pretty much thankful for everything! You made some great choices. The Robin Ventura and Sam Sosa stickers were a huge surprise. They look cool and very early 90's. I'll post one of those on my other site.

Plus there was a 1989 Topps pack included that I've already played Sox Or No Sox on A Pack A Day. I will be sending your cards in the mail this week, probably tomorrow. They will include most of the parameters that you asked for, plus a few Hall of Famers. Thanks again for the cards!

I loved the Cubs cards used as packing peanuts! Brilliant!

for some info on the stickers. David did all the dirty research for you. The Sosa is one of the better stickers in the set!

David posted those! I knew they looked very familiar for some reason! It all makes sense... now.

Thanks for jump starting my brain.
