A Thank You Gift From Bobble Mike

I can see why Jeff from Joe Collector didn't put on return address labels. When you send out free stuff, people feel compelled to send stuff in return. It's just human nature. Yeah, I just got that Michael Jackson song stuck in my head now too.

I don't mind thank you gifts. If someone ever wants to send me cards, who am I to tell them not to? I have absolutely no problem with that.

Mike, from Baseball Card Back, e-mailed me a few days ago to thank me for the extras that I threw in for the contest that he won. Mike told me to be on the lookout for a package.

I told him that it wasn't necessary, but if he felt like doing so, go for it.

The package came yesterday, but I didn't get to it until today. It looks like someone has been searching through my want list and was looking at my collecting list!

Wow! Or should I say, "Oh, Canada!" That is a lot of Canadian cardboard coming from the Hoosier state! Thanks, Mike! I'm floored by your generosity. This starts the weekend out right. I've been looking for that Cangelosi Minor League card for awhile. This was a great early Christmas present.

Check out Mike's blog, Baseball Card Back. He's another White Sox fan and is open to trading. The blog is in its beginnings, but it has awesome potential. I like what I see so far!

Wasn't there a Madonna song too?

I am very glad you liked the cards and was excited to knock a few off the list. BTW,I was more compelled because you are a White Sox fan than anything else and would have sent cards regardless. ;-) Mike

I think you're right about the Madonna song. Thankfully that didn't get stuck in my head too.
