This is such a busy time of the year ! I really need about 36 hours in each day.
The parts manager at work took all last week off to hunt Bambi, so I had to take over for him. (50 + hours last week)
That, right in the middle of my trying to get cards together for my free card give-a -way.( everyone will be getting more than than one card ! ) The first few are in the mail and the others will be going out soon.
Then the holidays are starting. My wife and I do a lot of Christmas candy making.
Plus I have other trades I need to catch up on.
This trade started about a month ago.
But I love to get emails like this one :
"Hi there. So, I was going through my secret-special box of favorite vintage cards that I would take to a desert island with me, and I somehow came across an autograph card of former prospect John Drennen. It's a sticker auto from 2005 Topps Rookie Cup. Apparently it's the red parallel version, numbered 056/399. I definitely remember getting this card in a pack several years ago, but I haven't a clue how it wound up in this box. Anyhow, now I'm looking for an appropriate home for this thing...."
He came across my blog and thought I might be interested ! Might be ?!
I definitely got back to him and he graciously sent it to me.
He also sent this great Albert Belle patch, along with small stack of other Tribe cards.
( can't post too many pictures right now, I'm approaching my Google limit !)
Mark, from This Way to the Clubhouse , was the sender of the email.
I know this post is a little late Mark, but thank you very much and I will get a nice return package to you.
The baseball card blogging community is just so awesome !
