An Eclectic Stats On The Back Package

One of the best things about having an extensive list is the amount of oddball cards I get on a regular basis. Sometimes people go off the list and just send over stuff. That's great too! Half the fun, sometimes, is not knowing what to expect when you open a package.

Mark, over at Stats On The Back, recently sent over a package of great cards. There are reprints, oddballs and a whole lotta awesome! Let's see what Mark sent over.

Thanks, Mark! I think that marks many firsts. My first Dover Reprint. My first Baseball Immortals. My first Baseball Talk card. That's a lot of firsts for one package! I wasn't sure what to expect when I found the package in my pile of mail. It was so well packaged, that I was stumped until I was able to open everything.

Frankly, I don't know who has a better shot at the playoffs, the Mets or the White Sox. I think they both have a good shot at making it. I wouldn't mind another Mets championship... that is unless the White Sox face them in the World Series. Then I'd have to root for my Sox. In only a few short months, we will both find out. I guess the only real difference this year is that when the playoffs start, I'll be married.

Congrats on the upcoming nuptials! I'd like to give you a Mets championship to celebrate!

Thanks! If the White Sox don't take the championship, I wouldn't mind seeing the Mets take it.
