Another Box From Eric!

Wow! I received yet another box from Eric! I think he's slowly sending me every card in existence featuring the White Sox.

I saw a nice small, tidy box on my windowsill, well after the mail carrier had gone. It was a substitute carrier, so not only was the mail late, but the box was hidden off to the side. If I hadn't gone out to pick up dinner for the family, I wouldn't have seen it.

I was having a so-so day, with little sleep, so this perked me right up. I saw one or two cards in the pile that I have never laid my eyes upon. The Bionic Bo Fun Pack card, I had never actually seen before. I love the cartoon aspect of the card!

Let's see what goodies arrived in the box!

I'm only listing what I needed for the collection. The want list will be updated tomorrow, with this list.

Talk about a great selection of cards that I needed! This of course doesn't include the cards that I already had. That stack was almost three times the height of this one. I'm amazed that I'm still getting cards knocked off my want list with seemingly random White Sox cards.

Thank you, once again, Eric! You are truly someone who is thoughtful! I will start stacking a new package for you. It may take a while, but it will get there.

No problem, man. My timing sucks, because I just pulled the A&Gs of Jenks and Cabrera... time to start rebuilding the stack, huh?
