The Johngy Files

There is no mail truck in sight. Yet, there is a package on my porch. No postage. No return address. When this happens to me, I don't panic and frantically call the police with thoughts of a Unabomber clone. No, I figure that the package has found its way from Johngy to me.

So far, I have been right every single time. During my isolation period from the internet, I received one of those mystery packages. I am never disappointed by the generosity and frequency of these packages. I am just grateful that they arrive. This one arrived just when I needed it most. When I'm jonesing for baseball cards, Johngy always comes through!

Thank you, John! These cards were awesome! It took me awhile to figure out what the Fleer Tiffany was. I wasn't collecting in the mid nineties, so I missed out on a lot of those things. It's one thing to list them, it's entirely another to identify them in person.

I was excited about the 1959 cards, but I was also excited about the Don Wakamatsu card. I guess that all the cards you sent are equally excitable to me. It was great to see the progression of some of the nineties teams. It's always fun to reflect through cards.

You're an excitable boy.

So does John drop off these packages in person at your house?

Great Zevon reference!

The delivery is always a mystery.
