Packages Will Be Received

Three packages were mailed today. One way overdue package to Olagato House. One slightly late, but for a good reason, package to The Writer's Journey. Plus, one zippy package over to the Project '62.

The first package, to Nicole, has been brewing since March 2008. The bulk of the cards sent have been set aside waiting until she got back on her feet after an unlucky streak that rivals Nick Swisher's 2008 season. Now my desk is a little cleaner and her collection should be a little fatter. As luck would have it, I was able to knock off a few 2008 Allen & Ginter cards from her new list. Maybe her luck is changing already.

The second package goes to Jason. We did a blind trade of 575 cards. I received my gigantic box of cards from him about two weeks ago. I fell a little short of 575 Reds cards to return, so I had to wait a bit until I was able to call in some favors and snag a stash of 150 unique cards from the past two seasons. I'm hoping that there aren't any doubles in the box, but there may be one or two. There are some variations, so don't assume a card is a double at first glance. I threw in a few extra cards over the 575 mark, since the box took longer than expected to fill.

The third package goes to Chris. This is probably the fastest trade I have worked on in awhile. The turnaround was pretty quick. I am sending out 16 different Scott Radinsky cards and in return I'll be getting a few White Sox cards knocked off my trade list.

If you are on this list, then check your mailboxes in the next few days. Hopefully, there will be new treasures in there when you open the mail. If not, then probably at the beginning of next week. Regardless, all three of you should be seeing packages shortly, would be the gist of what I'm trying to say here.

Steve, your package came yesterday but I was unable to get to the mail until today. Man, first glance at the cards in the box and my jaw is still on the floor! I can't wait to go through and really look at them each individually...several Griffeys, Sabos, Dibbles, Davises, and even a 2008 Donruss Pete Rose! You rock, man. You rock hard.

And this coming Saturday, I've got that Izzy Stradlin song lined up for you on Hard Rock Nights!
