Mailbox Shock

I found this draft from 2007.  I have no idea who sent these cards to me.  

I love going to the mailbox and getting a shock. unless it is a bill  Card shock is always great.  I recently got one of those shocks.  I was warned that some cards were coming but I didn't expect an 800 count box full of Red Sox.  Here is a tiny portion of what I got.

  • Yes, I still need 1993 Bowman cards. I was only collecting football in 93 so the want list is extensive.
  • Cyborg Mo - Hard to see but he has a metal arm and leg.
  • A rookie Nomar
  • Hard to see in the scan but that is a Donruss Press Proof Mo Vaughn.  The first one I have ever had.
  • Wakefield is in back in the rotation and I now have a blue parallel Wake.
  • Of all the painted sets ever made 2003 Playoff Portraits may be the very best ever.  
  • Pedro was supposed to go on a different scan.

Upper Deck Timeless Teams are kick ass. Somehow I missed that set but I am always glad to find some.  The big checklist means I wall be chasing them for years.  I received 7 in this box so to fill the scan here are 2 Nomars.

The floodgates were opened with Nomar cards as you could see in past posts.  Now I hope the Pedro floodgates open.  If they do this package will be the start of it.  I think if I decided to bite off player collecting again I would probably choose Pedro.  The best pitcher that I have ever seen and he has a ton of great cards.

Thanks again for the great box of cards.

Love the card stock on the 2003 Playoff Portraits. They feel and look like they were actually individually painted.
