Hey, folks! Well, we managed to skirt the storms where I live, but other parts of the state got hit rough - though nowhere near as hard as Oklahoma. My thoughts and prayers go out to the folks dealing with the devastation there.
On a different note, I have nearly all the mailers ready to go! I sent out several already but the bulk will go on Wednesday. I am still waiting for addresses from some folks, and I've been contacting you via email, so you may need to be on the lookout for that.
Some of the 2016 items managed to escape my grasp before they could be stuffed into mailers (mainly the non-baseball stuff, really - just operator headspace on my part), so those will go out either in the June batch or sometime before that if I feel like sending PWEs.
Whew! What else? Oh yeah, some folks have been asking about the "Galactic Greats Set Giveaway" - Okay, actually, the question has been something like, "Hey, I thought we were going to draft the Galactic Greats Set. Did you forget?" NOPE! I have not forgotten. But, we aren't going to draft it, either. I am concocting a scheme for that giveaway. Believe me, you'll know when the time has come!
Are we caught up? I think so. You know what that means! Let's Rip Some Wax!
2013 Panini Triple Play
Buster Posey Sticker - Giants - Arpsmith (Wahoo!!)
Josh Reddick - A's - Dayf (Wahoo!!)
Jered Weaver - Angels - AngelsInOrder (Wahoo!!)
Pedro Alvarez - Pirates - Brian C (Wahoo!!)
Johnny Cueto - Reds - Nachos Grande (Wahoo!!)
Knuckleball - Baseball 101 - FREE AGENT
Prince Fielder All-Star - Tigers - Ryan G (Wahoo!!)
Why is Posey dressed in RED!? He plays for the Giants - Black, Orange, White... I dunno, man. I know the scan makes him look dressed in orange, but to the eye, it looks red. Never mind. Fielder was a Tiger in 2013, so he goes to the Tigers. We scored a Free Agent! And, congrats to each of you that pulled a card from this pack! Great job! (Haha, I feel silly saying that sometimes. I mean, all you did was pick what team you wanted, right? Ah well, Nice job anyway!)
2014 Goodwin Champions
LeBron James - Basketball - Enamel Rods (Wahoo!!)
Canelo Alvarez - Boxer - FREE AGENT
King Kelly Mini - White Stockings - Dominic FDNY (Wahoo!!)
Bobby Hull - Hockey - Hockeykazi (Wahoo!!)
King Kelly played 7 seasons for the White Stockings, 5 for the Beaneaters, and for several other teams. Since he played the most for the White Stockings, the card goes to FDNY. Haha, that Hull card is great! We scored another Free Agent! We are building up our next draft. Oh yeah, speaking of that - I forgot to include "Umpire" in the last draft, so that will be in the next round!
