Trading With gcrl

Since this box arrived, I have been sick, sapped of energy and generally trying to scrape together posts with the little bit of energy that I did have. I am sad to report that my sinuses are still hanging in there making my life torturous, but that is the only thing.

The generosity and concern of many fellow bloggers made the time that much more tolerable. I thank each and every one for the good thoughts and well wishes over the past week. They really did help.

Now on to this monster that came by way of gcrl. I haven't sorted them out yet. I haven't counted how many cards either. But I have written everything down and scanned two cards to represent the entire box. The card initially representing the box is a 2001 Topps Tribute card of Carlton Fisk, as seen in the upper left hand corner of this post. The card is actually shiny and mirrorlike, but it scanned beige.

When I opened the box, I knew I was in for a treat. On the top was a graded card and three 1989 Bowman cards of Carlton Fisk. As I sorted through the cards, putting them in order, I saw a bunch of great cards. I also saw mind blowing numbers of duplicate cards. To get the full impact of this box, I have decided to list all of the contents, including how many of what card. Be prepared for a laundry list of cards. Not since the box from Eric have I seen such a display of White Sox cards in one setting, through the mail.

What's in this box? Let's find out the loose cards.

Let's catch our breath, shall we?

There was even more treasures in the box. Remember, way back near the top of the post, I mentioned something about a graded card. It turned out to be a graded rookie card. No, not a Frank Thomas, but someone else from 1990.

A 1990 Upper Deck Sammy Sosa graded card.

Normally, I don't care much for graded cards. This would be my first actual graded card. But, I feel the imprisonment of this card is justified. Take that any way you like.

If that weren't enough, there were three sealed White Sox team packs of 1997 Collector's Choice.

This was a lot to handle while I was sick, but I enjoyed every minute of it! Thank you so much gcrl! A package is being compiled for you right now!

I received my box from gcrl on Monday. Loads of good stuff. I think he may have more cards than dayf!

sosa under glass. glad you enjoyed going through all that. sorry about so many duplicates - i was in a zone with the purging.

Slette said...

Holy Lord, what a haul! That had to knock out half of your want list!

Purging cards you don't want is the best.

I didn't mind the duplicates. Especially the duplicates of the 1990 Topps Thomas rookie. :)

Today I'll go through the cards and see what is actually on my list and then update that. This box will take a good chunk out, that's for sure.

Dang, Steve! I hope gcrl left some spots on your want list for me to fill with the cards I sent you this past Saturday.
