I love opening our rural route mailbox to find a padded envelope inside! The one I found most recently came from Duane in Howard, Ohio.
As I looked through the cards, a song from long ago and far away began to fill my internal music box.... "Silver and gold... Silver and gold..." It was Yukon Cornelius, who had finally struck it rich in the form of shiny baseball cards!
We start off with Score Gold Rush cards! The Treadway with Yount is especially cool. I have no idea why a card photographer would choose Espinoza's pose to begin with, let alone adorn said pose in gold, but there it is. There is also a Topps Gold Mike Aldrete in there too! Then on the 'silver' (as in Chrome) side, we have a selection of Topps Chrome Tribers! I am a huge fan of Topps Chrome. And to top it off, we've got Nagy, Franco, McDowell, and Mesa! Not a bad combo in silver. And if THAT weren't enough, Duane sent cards with silver AND gold on them! They are Bowman's Best Wright, Bell, and Fryman!
But that's not all, boys and girls! How about Sportflics, stickers and a 1992 Donruss MVP Alomar Jr!!
There's also a king-sized Farrell and another Topps sticker, too:
And last, but no where near least is an actual PANEL from Kraft Cheese and Macaroni from the days when it was Kraft Macaroni and Cheese! This one not only features the great Joe Carter, but right next to him is Pete Rose! And the panel itself is in tact, which is ultra-cool! You'll notice that even the glue strip that held the box together is there - no trimming that down, folks!
Man, I have to give a BIG "Thank You" to Duane for some kickin' Indians cards! Oh, and for giving me a song that is playing over and over in my head because I can't get it out now.... It's worth it.
