Cards from the Most Interesting Blogger In The World
A few weeks ago, Jaybarkerfan caught me off guard and sent me TWO flat-rate boxes back with 16 team bags of cards. I need to show those off. However, the other day while scanning cards, I realized that I never scanned and showed off the previous package Wes sent me about a month before. I felt badly about that.
So before I get to those AWESOME two boxes he sent me, here’s some of the sweet stuff he sent me back in February.
First off, this post-it was in there. I actually do find Wes to be the most interesting (and mysteriou)s card blogger out there. He comes up with massive amounts of Yanks and sends them my way. Where does he get them? How? Why? The man is a mystery, but I’m thrilled he has chosen me to be the recipient of mysterious ways.
Now on to the cards. I’ll show off this football card first. A few times, I’ve mentioned I’m a Bengals fan. Long story as to why I like Cincy, but Wes took note and periodically sends me Bengals relics. I don’t actively collect football, but adding sweet cards from my favorite team is something I’ll always be up for. Take a look at this beautiful Tyler Eifert jersey/patch card #’d to 99. Whoa! Eifert is going to be a star, and I’m very lucky to have this in my collection now.
Next up, two sweet green cards! This Mariano is just a classy card. Well, any card with Mo is classy, but the design and the vibrant emerald color really make this card special. Plus, #’d to 250. I don’t have many high end Mariano cards like this.
And speaking of green, this awesome emerald refractor of the guy pitching for the Yanks tonight!
Here’s a random sampling of what else was in there. Is there any insert set over the years that is cooler than Flair Wave of the Future? I don’t think so.This card doesn't have water in it, but it's still fantastic.
All in due time I’ll show off the EPIC boxes sent by JBF.
