They gave - let me say thanks.

Plenty of bloggers out there have expressed what they are thankful for. Greats reads. I'm not going to go that route. No one needs to read any of the drivel that will come from my mouth. I'm fortunate enough you are still reading this now.

How the hell do I unbookmark this site?

I do have a couple recent PWEs I would love to show off and show thanks for. First is from 2nd shift extraordinaire Night Owl. It's a usual 6 card envelope back and forth between NY and IL. This month's return trip contained a '13 Sale Panini, a gold ChiSox and these 3 beauts.

Topps Fan Favorites. Love these cards. You don't get a reprint but the year style with a different image. You can see the original '72 Wood here. Also about the Wood, the new picture gives a rare appearance of the blue sanitaries under the white stirrups. Thanks N.O.!

The other PWE came from John from Johnny's Trading Spot. John and I have never had one "official" trade. He just jumped in Club PWE, stole the return address from the envelope and has sent me back a few PWEs. And I will never complain, not just cuz it's free cards, but it is AWESOME free cards. Like this.

Three new for the throwbacks binder. Get used to this set - John sent a lot from it. And considering the cards, I need to look more into Fleer Tradition. For those looking close, I am sure you don't see the throwback that Wells is sporting. It's not apparent because it's not on his back. Check out his head. I am 99% positive that is the Ruth hat that Wells wore on June 28, 1997 against the Indians. If it is, we know that picture is from the first inning, as he had to remove the hat. John also hit another binder collection - double plays.

More Tradition. Man - quality photos from Fleer. And they don't stop in portrait mode.

While you don't see the turn, the Polcovich is definitely starting the 6-4-3 with the flip. How about some Big Hurt?

Where have you been all my life, Fleer Tradition? Best cards in the envelope are these two for different reasons.

Awesome Palmer miscut. That is Be Ee Ay Utiful. The Appier has him sporting the FDNY hat the Mets wore after 9/11. I'm not surprised a manufacturer would have cards showing that, I just never owned one before. I'll need to find a place for that. Thanks again, John.

Now that you are hungry, go hit the leftovers.


  1. I just watched the video with the two guys at the bar trading shots back and forth about the Cubs and White Sox. Love how it got "personal" when the White Sox guy slammed on the pizza.
    Add one more thing to the list that I'm thankful for: Radio 2x3.

  2. Thanks for the Kudos Jeff,

    I have 3 yes I said 3 more stuffed PWEs sitting here with your name on it to send out between now and the end of the year.

    Hoping to get some Braves coming back at me, LOL.

  3. Nice 77T Palmer. 30 years ago, I would have probably thrown that card away. These days I'm a huge fan of miscut cards.
