Unsolicited Cards Accepted Here!

There is almost nothing better than unsolicited cards, and today I'd like to thank some people who have been sending me stuff over the past couple of months. I've picked out some of my favorites that each person has sent.

This first package has been sitting in my dining room for months. Luckily, receiving a gift of this nature is not sanctioned by the IRS, so I do not have any need to go back and figure out if they came in calendar 2008 or 2009. (Somehow, someway, The Man will figure out how to take cards away from us. Remain vigilant!) Anyways here are the four favorites from The Easy Life:

2008 UD Baseball Heroes #46 Corey Hart Jersey (167/200), 2008 Baseball Heroes #99 Robin Yount Charcoal Parallel, 2007 Topps Updates & Highlights #UH246 Ben Sheets Copper Parallel (39/56), and 1985 Donruss Ginormous #16 Don Sutton.

Awesome lot, including a Yount I didn't have yet and a look into Don Sutton's perm without the aid of a magnifying glass.

Later, Saints of the Cheap Seats sent some Brewers. He's currently eagerly awaiting the arrival of a case for his upcoming case break. Here's the haul:

2008 Bowman Chrome #120 Yovanni Gallardo, 2008 Bowman #BDPP83 Mat Gamel, and 2007 Bowman #9 Prince Fielder. Gamel is going to be great. You heard it here first.

And most recently, I got a package from Thoughts and Sox. My three favorites:
2005 Bowman Heritage #341 Ryan Braun, 2008 Upper Deck X #57 Prince Fielder, and 2009 Upper Deck #212 CC Sabathia.

Very nice bunch of cards. I have the other Braun card from that set, the close-up variation, but I don't know for sure which one is harder to get. I also bought the mahogany variation of this card for a buck or two just before Braun got called up in 2007. Smartest move in carding I've ever made, just about. And now I've also got an addition to my growing CC list.

Big thanks go out to all of these fine human beings who were smart enough to realize the best way to get your blog linked on Thorzul Will Rule. Yes, there's very little that I'm above.
