An Extra "Card" From Billy

Today, I received three packages in the mail. This one is the quickest to post, so I'll start with this one. I have a tree to plant this afternoon, so I'm not sure how long that will take with temperatures dipping.

This package came in the form of a white envelope from Billy at West Virginia Cards. It contained a hand written note and a "card" placed inside the note. I was unsure of what to make of the folded piece of paper staring back at me. I decided to open it up.

Eureka! It was a 2002 Donruss Super Estrellas insert of Frank Thomas! I guess that the inserts were mini posters that year.

Thank you, Billy! I now have a very interesting Frank Thomas "card" to add to the collection. I am working on a package to send back consisting of players born in West Virginia. It is a long, gruelling process, but I'm sure that it will be worth it once the package arrives safely in your hands.

Hey! You got it! There were different inserts in the Super Estrellas packs. In the same pack, I got a Vladimir Guerrero "Poder Cuadrangular" (I think) card.

The bad thing is that I can't find any info on the set. It's not in my SCD, which is really saying something because practically every other card set is in there. Does anyone else have any info on these cards?
