Some Crinkly cards in the mail

I recently got some cards from Ted over at Crinkly Wrappers.  I sent him a couple 2011 Heritage SPs he needed and a sweet Clemens card.  Come to think of it, I haven't posted the pack that the card came out of, so why not do that first.

Here's a pack of 1999 Topps Finest Series 1.  Anyone who has read this blog in the past year has seen 1999 Finest pop up a few times.  The LCS had it for cheap, so I pick one or two up most times I go by. 

Neifi Perez,
Jeff King - I'm not quite sure how to describe the awesomeness of the moustache. His lip has a unibrow.
Shawn Green
Shane Reynolds
Scott Rolen Gems - Scott Rolen as a Phillie, haven't seen that in a while.

Roger Clemens Team Finest Blue #1179/1500 (1:82 packs) - Could be the best insert I've pulled from 1999 Finest.  All 'roid issues aside, it's a great looking cards since it's a blue card of a Blue Jay.  The serial numbers on 1999 Finest look great.  They make it look like a card you want to have.

Yeah, so I sent Ted the Clemens.  At least I think I did.  I intended to.  Now that I think about it, I can't remember if I stuck it in the package.  Anyway, he sent me a couple cards for my Topps #3 collection, which I greatly appreciated.

He also sent along some various set needs:

I love packages that hit several want lists.  Thanks Ted!

OK Spankee, what's it going to take to get that #17 Phillie out of you?? That is one swweeett looking card.
