I have been without a scanner for a few weeks. My wife d a new business and to keep costs down instead of buying a new printer she swiped the one from home. I went and got my old scanner out of storage only to find that I lost the cord for it. That problem is now solved and I am back to posting. Though, it will take some practice getting use to the old scanner again as you can see from the poorly cropped scans.
A while back I got a package from Gordon. The same Gordon that is in 2nd place in our Card Bloggers Unite Fantasy League. Every team set collector wants someone to send their doubles to. I am
that one of those guys for Gordon. I have received many, many packages from him. I try to repay him in kind but I usually have a hard time finding stuff he doesn't have yet. Now and then I get lucky and find a few but never very much. On to the cards...
This is one of the worse ideas for a card set all time. It would have been ok if they put out a 20th Anniversery set that we could have bout instead of giving us a couple cards per box of everything UD we bought for a year. I always wondered if certain cards from this set only came out of a certain product. Like could you only pull numbers 1-200 out of base UD, 201-400 out of First Edition 401-600 out of Spectrum etc. Someone out there knows. With the addition of this Papelbon I only need about 150 more to complete my Red Sox team set.
Not sure what this card is or what it does but I can tell it folds or comes apart or something. It kind of reminds me of one of those Pinnacle 4-In -1 Stand Up cards but I'm not the kind of collector that has to know bad enough to tear it apart to see.
The longer I live here in AZ the more I like Schilling. He is as much of a cult hero around here as he is in Boston. Maybe even a little more.
I've seen these cards on other blogs and wondered what Red Sox were in the set. Not wondered enough to do a search and find out, just wondered enough to think to myself. So now I know that there is a Williams card in it.
Thanks for another great package Gordon. They are always appreciated. I actually found some stuff for you that will be on the way soon. At least as soon as I get my lazy self to the PO.
Same goes to all the group breakers. Everyone is packaged up, I just need to brave the PO line.
