Ok, on to the second day of the "vendors" from the SAH National (you guys) that sent me cards over the past few days. I am way behind on my trade and non-trade cards-out-of-kidness postings, but going to knock them out if I have to move the skies and the seas doing it.
|Little help here?|
Huge stack of junk wax to current filled the two team bags Greg sent. While much wasn't new, I found many pieces to fill teams sets in the Sox Box, as well as about a dozen cards into the Sox frankenset. Thornton was one of those that hit the frankenset binder, while Kittle and Flowers are new additions in the Sox box.
These two are the stars of the package. Singleton is a Domination dupe in the Sox box, but I really like the card (even if it scans like hell) and made a nice addition in the frankenset. Plus an on card auto of a Sox minor leaguer is always welcome. Zippy - wanna give me a rundown on his talents? Greg, thanks as always. I believe I have a few cards about to come back your direction.
Today's other vendor is everyone's favorite Dutch collection Jeroen from Dutch Card Guy. Besides being the biggest Glavine collector in the world (seriously dude - are there no therapists in that country?), Jeroen is very generous for a guy that has to spend serious postal cash to trade with anyone. We usually help each other out with set building as I dropped a bunch of GQ and other cards on him, plus two newbies for that Glavine monster he has. His return was quite generous.
Lots of Sox, with that gold Sale leading the way. Jeroen also included some hockey players from Goodwin and a few of the World Cup champ woman's team member, which came from Americana a couple years back. That's a section of the set I really should complete.
Either Topps Finest (of that style) should never be scanned, or my scanner is just crap (answer: B). That card is 1000 times better in person and a nice card to receive. Diamond Kings will definitely be a box purchase soon. Panini releases a lot of ugly cards without the license, but somehow DK works really well. That Alexei is actually a parallel serialed to /99. But the highlight was the stack of relics in the mailer.
Little bit of everything, with a piece from a Ben Stiller flic, a donkey bat relic and a Verlander jersey swatch. I'm sure the first two can make some sense, but the Verlander? Luckily, Jeroen added a note telling me that he hopes the Juston reminds me of Kate Upton. Since we know the uniform relics are not from a specific game, event or season, I did a little Google search....
White jersey? Yup - THAT'S A MATCH! It touched Kate! Thanks for the cards, Jeroen.
