That's a Wrap

Tiger Sportscards volonteered to wrap a few team sets off for me when I begged for cards last month.  These were the last two 93 Ultra cards I needed for the binder.


Not two days after I got this Clemens to finish of my 92 Ultra team set I got the same card from NatsTown.  (But that is for another post)  I can't tell you how many times that has happened in the past.
A complete surprise was this Hostess Bill Campbell.  I never have expressed how much I like Hostess cards.  (or post for that matter)  I don't know what it is about them but I usually buy them over regular issue cards when I see them.

This 1962 Topps Pagliaroni card was completly unexpected too.  Nobody ever gives up vintage stuff so it is always a surprise when one lands in my mailbox. 


Thank you Don

Scott Cooper is amazing, he only had 500 at bats once in his career but was named to 2 AL all star teams.

Rhubarb - If someone told you they were just sending a few early 90s Ultra and there was a 62 Topps in the package you would be surprized too.

Adam, you are welcome. Some clarification on my end. When I contacted Adam I just said that I was not looking for anything in particular, but if he had anything off of my wantlist it would be great. I then started looking at his other wants and found the 62. I don't collect 62s, so I sent it his way. I am weird in that I have been known to send vintage to people and not expect anything in return.
