Yesterday I received a fantastic 'thank you' package from Casey over at Drop The Gloves!. A while back I built a custom cut auto of Reggie Lewis for him and this was his way of letting me know how much he appreciated my work.
I don't want to diminish the cards (because they are very cool), but the gesture in itself is more than enough. Thanks Casey for the fantastic gift.
As I always say....do good things and good things happen.
So without further ado, let's check out some of the goods.
I have seen numerous articles about this card. It's constantly on the 'top baseball cards of all time' list and I've wanted a copy of it for quite some time.
It is a stunner.
In fact, I like it so much, I'm making it a part of my little shrine at work. I know the guys will get a huge kick out of it. They thought I was a card geek before.....this'll put things over the top.
I literally jumped out of my chair when I saw this card. It'll always bring a smile to my face. And if you readers have a moment...do a Google search for Oscar Gamble hair (good times).
Again, too many to scan so here are the selects.
Casey included a number of the 70/71 singles....more than enough to build a very solid 'One Sheet, One Set' page. Thanks very much for that.
Me thinks so.
I gotta say, a huge thank you for the kind gifts. As much as I love the cards, the gesture is what resonates with me.
Makes me motivated to do more good things.
