Cards From Cards On Cards

I sent off a package to Kerry of Cards On Cards a little while ago. I think it started out as a thank you package or something. I forget the exact details of it all. Anyway, I received a package in the mail from Kerry sometime over last weekend.

Before this post gets delayed any further, I figured I'd blog about it now. The past two weeks seemed to bring nothing but delays. I'm slowly tying up loose ends and everything should be back to normal by the weekend. This time for sure!

As I opened the package, I couldn't imagine what cards would await me. I was pleasantly surprised by some. Really surprised by a few. And I wore a smile throughout the entire contents of the package.

Without any further ado, here's the cards!

Thanks, Kerry! That was an awesome display of cards. I think I might be able to cross those pesky Canadian cards off my list soon. I've been receiving a lot of O-Pee-Chee cards lately.

The things that seemed odd to me, now seem the coolest. The Cliff Floyd promo had me puzzled, until I read the back. I knew he grew up in Chicago, but I had no idea that he modeled his playing style after Harold Baines. That's really cool! The Cap Anson card threw me, since he was on the White Stockings team that eventually morphed into the modern day Cubs. The more I pondered on it, the more it seemed really cool to have a numbered promo card of a Hall of Fame player.

The little touches were wonderful. This package was just full of little surprises. The littlest cards were the two Cracker Jack cards. They are about as big as my thumb, but they are oh so cute. Any time that I can get a little closer to completing my 2008 Topps Heritage is a good time.

Glad you liked the cards. I used to work at a card shop when I was in high school for a couple of years and also was a regular card show attendee so I ended up accumulating a number of odd promo cards.
