Mailbox Joys: The Last Mail Of 2009

2007 Upper Deck Premier #130 - Paul Konerko (09/15)

Ironically, the last purchased card to arrive through the mail ended up to be one of the biggest bargains. I'm not that far off from completing my 2007 want list. It's still a ways off, but closer than I ever could have imagined.

After securing some cards in my Check Out My Cards account, I headed over to eBay to see if I could snag some bargains. To my surprise, I found this card numbered to fifteen, on sale in a store for slightly over a dollar. Cards that were numbered to ninety nine were far more expensive.

What was the big secret of finding this card for such a small price? Frankly, I don't know. Maybe it was divine intervention or some other Slayer album title, but the price was the only factor for me. It was a no-brainer.

This left 2009 on a high note for purchased cards. I can't wait to see what 2010 has in store for me through the mail.

Hey, I sent you an e-mail awhile back. I have some White Sox stuff for you from your want list. Please let me know if you got the e-mail - and I need your mailing address.
