I owe you an answer to my last 3D post: Jeff Bagwell. I assure you, it's forthcoming. There are more cards looking for homes too. I've overhauled my want list. I continue to collect Tigers but more carefully. I just can't use cards from 1980-1994, having them many times over. The list will be updated more often as well. Thanks to all of my many trade pals, whose generosity pushed me to eliminate player collections from the list for now. I'll add specific player cards in the near future.
This is a good time to share a few more of the packages received in the past year. Each of these jolly good fellows deserves an individual post. I can't wait that long. They have waited months.
NIGHT OWL CARDS
A great mix of old and new here from the great repository of cardboard history, Night Owl. I can say new since these were rec'd less than a year ago and rather new at the time. Ha. Really tho, 76 Topps, 81 Fleer. Player collections. Tigers. A very nice JD Martinez /99. Always grateful to you, N.O.!

|What's a Wockenfuss? Snuffleupagus comes to mind.|
|Champ Summers belongs in every collection. Does too.|
|If flakes are gonna fall, better on the card than in the yard.|
JOHNNY'S TRADING SPOT
John Miller is a crazy man. The proof has found its way to my porch twice - in July and this past week. Both packages contained THOUSANDS of catchers. THOUSANDS. This will keep me sorting all winter long. I have never been Zippy Zapped or Bipped but now know what it's like, catchers in the wry. Needless to say, catchers were also removed from my want list. Unless it's 79 or older, I won't need it. He also sent a mailer a while back filled with an assortment of shiny and colorful Tigers.

|1998 Skybox Thunder. Lightning and the Thunder.|
Kevin - writer, collector, musician and my friend in France! He shops ebay and comc for his trade pals, always choosing a little vintage and snappy relics or autos. He sent a sweetly packaged mailer earlier in the year. Here are some of the surprises it held:
|BIGGIO heavy duty 2016 VAULT METAL|
02 MUSEUM SANDBERG /199
|PUDGE 01 UD GLOVE RELIC|
PIAZZA 02 HOT PROSPECTS
|NEWLY RETIRED VMART - 2017 MUSEUM|
|2017 THREADS #/18 - sweet card!|
|2017 GOLD LABEL HEAVY DUTY AUTO|
