Today was MAIL DAY! Yeap, that's right, I **finally** pointed my Charger toward the Post Office and mailed off several bubbleopes I have been meaning to send off for weeks now!
And, today was MAIL DAY! I had a package from the good Cap'n himself, Capt Canuck from the Great White North! Let's see what's inside:
First up, we have a great selection of Indians O-Pee-Chee cards from 1985! Man, do these guys bring back some memories!
Then, we have a bunch of Panini stickers from 1989! I don't know off-hand which ones I need, but I am pretty sure I don't have the Cleveland Stadium sticker. That is SWEET!
Rounding things out, how about a couple of Victor Martinez cards and a pack of 1990 Donruss cards! Oh yeah, there will be some "Tribe or No Tribe" tonight! In fact, that is coming up right after you look at these beauts:
Now, let's bust open this pack of Donruss for a little Tribe-or-no-Tribe action:
17 cards in the pack plus a puzzle piece. Par score = 9 points at 0.5 per card
Carl Yastrzemski puzzle piece. Well, I suppose that gets the base +0.5 score. Total = 0.05
Dave Stewart (A's) MVP card - +0.5 points, total = 1.0 point
Chad Kreuter (Rangers) - +0.5, total = 1.5 points
Willie McGee (Cardinals) - +0.5, total = 2.0 points
Felix Jose (A's) - +0.5, total = 2.5 points
Eric Show (Padres) - +0.5, total = 3.0 points
Gene Larkin (Twins) - +0.5, total = 3.5 points (Well, we are on par anyway)
Ricky Jordan (Phillies) - +0.5, total = 4.0 points
Gary Pettis (Tigers) - +0.5, total = 4.5 points
Rickey Henderson (A's) - +0.5, total = 5.0 points (Now, THAT is awesome. Period!)
Bill Doran (Astros) - +0.5, total = 5.5 points
Brad Komminsk (Indians - TRIBECARD!) - +2, total = 7.5 points
George Canale (Brewers) - +0.5, total = 8.0 points
Billy Ripken (Orioles) - +0.5, total = 8.5 points (no "error" here! That's just for Topps)
Chili Davis (Angels) MVP, +0.5, total = 9.0 points
Les Lancaster (Cubs), +0.5, total = 9.5 points
Jim Acker (Blue Jays), +0.5, total = 10.0 points
Ron Robinson (Reds - TRAP!) - -1 point, 9.0 total points
Aw, dawg. I thought I was going to have a big time with that Indians card, but then fate stepped in and tossed me a trap card! Well, I still scored above par on this pack! Al-in-all, a *GREAT* delivery from Captain Canuck!! Thanks a bunch!!
