Trick And Treat?

It's that time of year again. Where spooky things and delightful treats travel through the U.S. Postal Service right to my door. It must be another Trick Or Treat giveaway by the master of gifting, Tribe Cards!

I grabbed the mail today and noticed a small envelope with a familiar address. Would I get Alomared? I opened the envelope slowly. A pair of eyes greeted me. I know those eyes! Kenny Lofton. And there's a White Sox logo. Kenny Lofton was on the Sox. No tricks!

Then I took the paper ring off.

The White Sox logo was just a sticker. Kenny's eyes turned evil and he was smiling, while a mini Kenny Lofton swung a mighty stick and frightened my fragile psyche. This was the Evil Dead trilogy all over again! I turned to the back of the card and it revealed three more Tribe uniforms. And two more Loftons!!!!

Then a 1985 checklist. What?!! That's not right. Another 1985 Topps checklist. The same card!! I'm having a horrible feeling about this.

A 1991 Donruss checklist card!! I think I threw up in my mouth a little.

Wait!! Wait!! Is that a... YES!! It's a White Sox card!! An autographed 2007 Bowman's Best Kyle McCulloch card. I'll consider that a treat, until proven otherwise.

OK. This isn't so bad. I think I'm going to live through the experience.

1997 Bowman checklist!! Awww, man!! 1991 Upper Deck high numbers checklist??!! I can't take anymore junk wax checklists!! Then I reached the last card. Will it be my salvation? Will it at least feature a picture? Noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

A 1992 Donruss checklist!!!
Four Indian encrusted Loftons on a single card. A number one draft pick autograph of a player still with the White Sox AA team. Six pictureless checklists. I think I got tricked with a treat. How did all of you fare this Halloween?
