I usually take lunch around 11:30, but the other day I was on a roll at work and actually being productive, so I ended up taking a late lunch around 1:30. As fate would have it, I stumbled upon Crinkly Wrappers's lunchtime blog post about his first annual year end clearance at just the right time. I was the third commenter, thus claiming a lot of cards. I picked Lot #2, described in his words as:
"Oddball sets and inserts. This lot will consist of oddball sets and odd sized cards. It will also include insert cards and parallels (ie; anything not a base card), from various sets, years and manufacturers. This lot will also include some of your favorite team."
Who doesn't love odd sized cards? A few days later, I received a 200-count box of randomness that was definitely an adventure digging through. I have sent him some Jays to say 'Thanks!', because this box was awesome. To give you a taste of what was included:
A couple Toys'R'Us cards, including a sweet Bo Jackson. Abunch of Topps Kids, including a psychadelic Nolan Ryan and a very roidy Bonds. A Billy the Marlin Tattoo that I'll put on my wife while she sleeps. Is it just me, or did that Sportflics card scan in awesome.
Several mini/offsize cards including a Doc and a Sailor
Some nice cards for my PCs. I actually have a few of the Wright 2020 card, but it's such a great looking card that I don't mind.
A few serial numbered goodies
And the highlight of the box...a Robin Roberts Topps Commemorative Patch
These cards are just a taste of the awesomeness that was in the box. Thanks a ton Crinkly Wrappers!
