I got a Fort Knox Box

I received a box in the mail Saturday from TheSewingMachineGuy .  Not a padded envelope or a card box, an actual box.  The box was filled with peanuts (not the kind you eat).  In the middle of all the peanuts was a padded envelope and inside of that bubble mailer was this. 

What you are looking at is two pieces of cardboard** held together by four rubber bands.  What was he trying to protect??

**I used to wonder why he was TheSewingMachineGuy.  When I saw that the pieces of cardboard he used spelled out Singer when put together I decided he either sell sewing machines, reairs them, or both.

1990 MLB Playing Cards Wade Boggs

Does anyone know if these came in wax pack form or was it just a deck of cards with players on them?

2009 T206 Mini Jacoby Ellsbury 03/99
I'm eagerly awaiting what other T206 cards I ended up with from I Am Joe Collectors group break.  This is the first month I was able to get a spot.  Hopfully there were lots of Red Sox and hopefully one of them wasn't this card.
2008 Goudey Bobby Doerr Autographed
An autograph of a Hall of Famer.  Heck, he even personalized it as HOF 86.  This is easily the coolest card in the package.  I have heard that he is a great TTM signer but I have never sent him anything.  I actually haven't sent any TTMs since I was a kid.  The last one I sent was an 88 Topps Reggie White in 1988.

Thank you SewingMachineGuy, these were great cards.

The Playing Cards I have are in a little box as a deck. I'm assuming the earlier ones were that way as well, but I don't really know for sure haha.
