Too much time has passed without sharing some great trade packages. That's what's about to happen right here, right now.
Eamus Catuli! Tom Olson once waiting another year, has since celebrated his Cubs World Series win. This occurred well after after sending two different packages. One contained 60 or so cards, the other was a box of 200 more delightful paper collectibles.
The first featured two 90 Score Sandbergs - one is an error. Gracie 94 UD ED and 95 Leaf Ltd Bat Patrol make an entrance into my collection. SWELL Baseball Greats, 2013 Opening Day Stars, a dosing of Presidents and Cardtoons rounded out the first package.
Six weeks or so later, this surprise hit my mailbox:
Contents included a good helping of Sandberg and Grace, 93 Flair Tigers and the original framed cards of 96 Emotion EXL.
Holy Moly Tom Olson! You rained some serious cardboard on me! I am truly appreciative of your time and thoughtfulness! You are my Sandberg and Grace connection. I looked forward to more trade opportunities!
It's been too long - one year ago in fact - since there was a giveaway on this blog! I am currently working to sort out my collection. I shared a picture of my sorting process which includes a discard pile. Adam Sanders of Cardboard Clubhouse commented on the post to suggest a contest for a box full of stuff from the pile. I have to agree!
So here's the first box - labeled 400 count! Consider this a $40 dime box. There are lots from 2014 Panini Classic, 2014 Golden Age with minis, 2016 Diamond Kings, 2015 and 2016 Topps Archives and a handful of 2015 GQ minis. It also contains dupes from my collection, players I no longer collect, set dupes, commons etc. My outcasts might be junk to one collector but another may find gold. Here's a sneak peek:
If you want a chance at the box you must live in the United States and have a street address for UPS Ground Shipping. You are required to comment to tell me why you are most deserving above all other readers. I shall present your cases before the Great Randomizer. She alone will determine your worthiness. The Randomizer will cycle three times before her decision is final. Your opportunity to participate ends Saturday March 11 at 8.00pm EST. [Any cycle jokes are cause for immediate
execution disqualification as the Randomizer is subject to mood swings.]
Thanks for reading and good luck!
