Well, John is at it again. He is sending out packages to the blogs that he reads and wants absolutely nothing in return. I am a little disappointed that he wants nothing in return, but I will honor his wishes.
This time John sent over a nice assortment of White Sox cards. They range from 1975 to 2008. There's even a teeny weeny, itsy bitsy, tiny little Robin Ventura card from the 1992 Cracker Jack set. It looks like a little baby 1992 Donruss card. How cute!
Is it my imagination or does Brian Downing look a little like Richard Kiel in this photo? Maybe I've been watching too many cheesy Bond flicks and cheesier Adam Sandler comedies. Does that date me too much?
Anyhoo, let's see what John sent, shall we?

That package was simply awesome! There was a good size chunk from the mid-nineties, which is my lost weekend from the hobby. I've been getting an awful lot of 1989 Donruss Jack McDowell cards. Maybe I should try to collect as many as possible, you know just for fun. I could corner the market.
I'm shocked that I'm getting those and none of the Yankee Stadium Legacy cards showing games against the White Sox. That may prove to be an impossible task. Maybe more impossible than collecting all of the 1989 Donruss Jack McDowell cards. I smell a challenge!
Thanks for the package, John. The cards are greatly appreciated!
