I'm not distracting you more, am I? Ooops.
If you have been graced by an envelope from John, you have experienced his unique shipping style.
Look close - that is a cut row from a 9 pocket page. John then stuffs 3 cards per slot, and sends one or two in a #10 envelope. DAMN - I wish I thought this up. Over the past few weeks, John has sent me a few envelopes of joy. I have two left to showcase - 2 sleeves per envelope - for a total of 36 cards. I am going to pick the best per slot, per row. So the best three cards in each sleeve. Then, as I am want to do (it's my blog - I set the rules), a little YouTube search to honor the best card of the three. It'll make sense when I start posting.
Need me to distract them some more while you figure this out?
No - that's okay future wife of mine. I can handle this. Alright, on with the scans.
Since you see the same Big Hurt, this is the sleeve from the top of the page. An all ChiSox sleeve. I always like seeing Kenny Williams as a player. I forget that about him when he GMs. Good old Dave Martinez. Ya know - the last guy to wear 14 before a certain potential HOFer. Dave wins the sleeve and the tune.
On to sleeve #2.
There's the #14 we know and love. More ChiSox in this sleeve, and mostly at the plate. Love seeing Valdez and best card winner Lee watching their moonshots.
Moving along to sleeve #3.
Something really simple about a "common checklist". Seems like really out of place wording. Great double play card of Bret Boone. Ultra had some great images. Including best card winner of Singleton tracking a ball in center. You can see him just about to pull it in.
And now, the final sleeve of twelve cards.
I know many bemoan '92 Fleer, and I will agree the design stinks. But that is a perfectly framed picture of Alex. He had a good career ahead of him but good ol' arm trouble changed that path. Another needed DP, this time from Counsell. And the best of the bunch is Ray searching for a pop up in the sun. Nice picture, and a great dirty jersey.
Thanks for playing and listening. And thank again to John for some great pieces of cardboard.
