As my wife and I were heading out to the truck to go to Target to spend some of our Christmas dough, the mailman pulled up and stepped out with a stack of mail and a small box. He handed it to my wife and she said it was addressed to me. It was a surprise package from Dawgbones of...well...Dawgbones. He had first contacted me about my last contest and we got to talking about many things, including the fact that he lives where I grew up, and I now live near where he works. Small world. He sent along an awesome package that included some cards:
Yes, that's a 2002 Bowman David Wright RC. I already have that card, but had been looking for another one for my brother, who is good friends and former high school basketball teammates with David. There was also a BJ Upton Fathead Tradeables:
I had a massive brain fart for a minute or two trying to figure out who #7 for the Yankees was...I'mmmmmm dumb.
He even took my Jefferson Burdick image and slapped it on for the face of the David Wright. Don't tell my family, but I think that is my favorite Christmas present I opened this year. I will absolutely be sending Dawgbones a sick package in return, because this was just plain awesome.
