JScott not only sent me his part of the $5 group break, he threw in a couple extra bucks for postage and a handful of Tribecards!
He hoped I might need some of these, and I'll know the definitive answer to that this weekend as I continue to catalog all the cards I've received over the past few months.
Here we have Aaron Boone and V-Mart! (It is still so hard to not think of him as one of ours...okay, I'm over it.)
C.C. in his heyday along with Trevor Crowe:
And, like Crowe, another 2009 Allen and Ginter - this time it's Fausto posing for his "National Pride" portrait:
These were a great surprise!! Thank you so much, JScott!! Well worth hosting a group break - LOL!
Next, I also received a package from Tim. He said, "A few Indians and some random. Hope you like em!"
Here is what I saw first in the plastic box:
Yeah, that's right, we're talking Mattingly and McWire(d)! Very cool coins!
Then, we have Gary DeMauro. You know him, right? Of course you do! It's Gary... You know Gary...right? I had no idea. Turns out this is from a 1990 set of "Classic Monster Truck Cards" according to the back of the card. He drives the "Towasaurus Wrex." Get it? TOW..WREX... Man, that kills me every time! Add to that John McNamara 1990 Topps Tiffany.
Next we have Joey Galloway. I'm sure I've heard of him, but the only thing that comes to mind is "My Cousin Vinny." I know, that was GALLOWS, but still... And Kenny Lofton!
Here are Chris James and Andy Allanson in this random pack, too.
Okay, maybe you didn't know Gary, but surely you know Doug, right? Doug Gilmour, you know, Blackhawks? That's hockey for those that are not so inclined. And, hold the phone! Jim "Holy crap was that guy young back then" Thome! Any random pack with Thome is a good pack.
Thank you very much, Tim! It was a great surprise getting my own random pack from ya. Some of these are going right into the 'other players I collect' boxes.
