Trading Appreciation

I feel like I'm stuck in some Disney cartoon lately. I'm late! I'm late! I seem to be running late everyday now. Priorities come up and things slip by more and more. They are not forgotten, just put on the back burner more often.

A few weeks ago, I got a package in the mail from Beginners Wax. There were some "loved" and some new White Sox cards. They were wrapped in a personal note explaining about the condition. They looked fine, by the way.

1989 Topps Big #148 - Ozzie Guillen
2008 Topps #144 - Jerry Owens
2008 Topps #181 - AL Saves Leaders (Jenks)
2008 Topps #240 - Jim Thome
2008 Topps #284 - Lance Broadway
2008 Topps #296 - Paul Konerko
2008 Topps #248 - Jose Contreras
2008 Topps Gold Foil #248 - Jose Contreras
2008 UD #281 - Mark Buehrle
2008 UD #285 - Ryan Bukvich
2008 UD #286 - Juan Uribe
2008 UD #289 - Jerry Owens
2008 UD #325 - Donny Lucy
2008 UD #338 - Heath Phillips

1991 Topps #559 - Adam Peterson

1988 Topps #232 - Bob James (2)
1988 Topps #788 - Ray Searage
1988 Topps #657 - Gary Redus

Now, normally this would be enough to put a smile on my face and spout off to family and friends about how cool this package was. I noticed another note in the package. This one was from Tulo Trader. It turns out that the proprietors of these great blogs know each other. So, Tulo Trader wanted in on sending White Sox cards to me.

Thanks a lot guys! Those are awesome cards! I know that there will be a few that will find a permanent home with me. Most of them will probably stay with me. Who am I trying to kid?

This fills a few holes in my collection. Plus, the cards are mostly from a period with fond childhood memories attached. You guys rock! Thanks again!
