The Massive Box Part One

On Friday, I received on long, heavy package in the mail. I was a little perplexed as to what the package might contain, until I saw the return address. It was from Eric! I was thinking that the package contained some White Sox bulky novelty items. When I opened the box, this is what I saw...
A 900 count box, mostly filled with cards. Eddie Vedder's painting certainly looks like it approves. Maybe Eddie, a Cubs fan, wouldn't be so quick to approve of the contents of this box, if he knew that it contained White Sox cards.
750 White Sox cards to be exact! While I sort out what I need from here, I will post the highlights in part two.

The one thing that I have learned from this is that the 1991 Donruss Grand Slammers card of Ron Karkovice came in both blue and green borders. Who knew? I sure didn't. That's my new fact for the day. It pushes out the name of the girl I had a crush on in preschool. Oh, well. It's not like I've seen her in over 25 years. No big loss there.

750 on the nose? Weird. Like I said man, you'll get a lot more enjoyment out of them than my closet did as they sat there in boxes and pages.

If any of your readers are team collectors, feel free to tell them to look me up!

Yeah, I was a little shocked at that number when I counted. I'll be on the lookout for team collectors.

Check out the Specialized Card Sites links on the right side of my page. You'll find a lot of team collectors on there.
