Here's a couple of snapshots of the last box, and then we're going to fly through a flurry of pictures in a vein attempt to keep up with The Leprechaun.
Wes must have had an abundance of penny sleeves, because every card in the three boxes was protected. Even the 1987 Topps!
Let's start with some good Kris Bryant mojo:
The dude can mash, but my pick for NL ROY is Jorge Soler. But if Soler can't stay healthy because of his pesky hamstrings then I reserve the right to change my pick to Kris Bryant! The Leprechaun says he'll make sure that no one objects. Such a swell lil' fella!
Hey, look! More colors of the rainbow!
Sweet swingin' Billy Williams and Mr. Cub...
Another Hall of Fame member . . . The Hawk!
A Madduxing of great proportions and a boost to my player collections of Brooks Kiescnhick, Matt Clement, and Nomah!
A couple of new Starlin Castro cards to add to the binder. I must be getting close to the century mark by now.
A new Kosuke Fukudome card! And one of my favorites . . . I love those Masterpieces!
122 unique Fukudomes! Woo-Hoo!
Two brand new Kerry Wood cards as well! One is from Opening Day and the other is from relic end of the spectum.
383 unique Kerry Wood cards! Woot! The Leprechaun knows what I like!
There were plenty of Sandberg cards being tossed around, none new to me, but plenty that might wind up in the FrankenSet!
DefGav any love for the Chicago Cubs top loader he sent in his last package. Stellar! Thanks, Gavin!
If I had to pick an NL Cy Young winner for this season my vote would be Andrew Cashner.
The next card is getting some love because Kyle Farnsworth wears tight pants and my wife digs that.
Heathcliff Slocumb . . . another former Peoria Chief from my middle school days.
Vinatge! Glorious Vintage!
Many years were represent in the box and few different brands in Bowman, Post, and Topps.
Mark this down... The Leprechaun gave me my first 1954 Bowman card . . . and it's in really good shape!
Roy Smalley was the Cubs starting shortstop from 1948 through 1950. Nice zip up jersey, Roy!
Lastly, my favorite two cards from The Leprechaun. #1 = Stan Hack! I talked a little about Stan when JBF sent me a placemat from his restaurant in Dixon, IL, a couple of months ago.
Wes, once again you outdid yourself. The shear volume of cards alone is enough to keep me sorting for a few weeks, especially with my new system involving the Cubs FrankenSet. Toss in cards for my player collections... a couple of Kris Bryants... the VOGELMONSTER... autos... vintage... and an Ernie Banks relic.
Wow! Thank you so much, my friend. A return package is in order, and it has been in the works for sometime now. It centers around your 2015 collecting goal, but be patient for this one will be worth the wait!
