Fat packages. Padded envelopes. Self-sealing. Metered mail. Team Bags. Mmmmmm.
I'll highlight just a few of each's contents.
#1. Overweight, stiff get-well-card-sized envelope from the Troll.
Minis are pretty with a black background aren't they? And numbered cards are always nice. Jered Weaver Gold 1333/2011.
#2 Crinkly Wrappers shows up with a self-sealing, moisture resistant 4x7 Scotch padded envelope.
Contents included six nice cards for my 2008 Upper Deck X set. Nice chunk to check off. And two really sweet 2011 Topps Heritage Joel Pineiro variations: Wal-mart blue tint and a regular green tint. Joels gone now. Is there a black tint?
#3 The largest envelope was a 6x9 USPS issued, self-sealing padded stuffed with a LARGE team bag appropriately stuffed with Team Angels.
Five, count'em five...wait four and a half, oh three and a half and one with a hole...how many does that make...SALMONS! A beautiful assortment.
Two, two-thousand-one Topps Archives Angels. Very nice.
A really sweet 2001 Fleer Ultra Garret Anderson Gold Medallion Edition #136G. Again, gold looks good.
Practically a whole team set of 2011 Lineage PLUS a Diamond Sparkly Jered Weaver! Oh hey! You know what? Troll sent me the Vernon Wells card that makes it a complete team set! Did you two work together behind the scenes?
That's the best I could do on this extra little surprise in the envelope, a little bitty Vladdy from something. Not sure what this is from but the bottom says whizkidgames.com. Went there and didn't see any kind of MLB game that would have a little Vladdy as a piece. Dig it for the collection though.
#4 Same as #2 but from Nomo's Sushi Platter.
Good, good stuff Spiegel, good, good stuff. (Thats a Piedmont back!)
