The Kindness of Strangers

Okay, the last thing I want to do is imply that T. from Wax Pack Relapse is a stranger. After seeing several slick cards at his website, I dropped a line asking what he collected and if he was up for a trade. Well, instead of trading, he just up and sent me “something off your wantlist that I don’t want/need” — holy cr@p!

clockwise, from top left: 2008 Bowman Draft Picks Gold #BDP28 Matt Macri; 2010 Bowman Prospects Black #BP76 James Beresford; 2010 Bowman Platinum Prospects Refractor #PP28 Miguel Sano [922/999]; 2010 Bowman Platinum Refractor #14 Joe Mauer [938/999]; 2010 Bowman Chrome Prospects Refractor #BCP127 Andrei Lobanov [434/500]; 2009 Bowman Orange #78 Glen Perkins [047/250]

Included in the package were several refractors, a lot of Bowman (I still don’t get those), a little of this, a little of that, even five UD Documentary cards!

I’m not sure what to send in return, but we’re having a nice sized get-together in KC to tailgate and watch the Twins/Royals game on June 5th — if you’re interested in attending, I’ll see that you’re fed and “watered” well. As a matter of fact, any of the KC-area bloggers are welcome to hang out with us. Several Royals fans as well as some of the Twins gang from WGOM are making efforts to be there.

Thanks again, T, and don’t be a stranger!
