Unexpected But Awesome Mail
I still haven't been able to write; I don't know what my deal is. I thought Tuesday's post would be the bloop single that got me out of my slump but apparently not. That said, I can't not show you guys the cards that came in the mail yesterday. I happened to be outside when the mailman (Is that the correct term? I think they're 'mail carriers' now. Whatever; he was a man and he had mail.) showed up. I was confused at first but after a second I was able to put the first name and city together and realized it was from Padrographs. I haven't even opened it yet and I already know it's going to be good. Exactly how good was something I wasn't quite prepared for. So many cards! And on top of that, so many Gwynns! You can see the stack to the left; there was a total of 66! He also included a packet of 33 Trevors; of these 12 were different '09 UD 2008 Documentary cards, as pictured at the top. Also in the package were dozens of Padres cards of players whose last name begins with an 'S'- including two Dave Staton cards I didn't have! There was doubles of one of them so I'll send that along to whoever gets the Sisterhood jersey after me. All in all, it was a huge haul and I'm incredibly grateful. I'm going to have to come up with something really good to get him back.
