Happy Camper

Why am I a happy camper on a dreary Monday afternoon? Because I just received a package from Steve over at White Sox Cards today. I desperately wanted to get in on the past baseball group break of two boxes of Donruss Threads because of all the hype surrounding that product and also because I haven’t bought anything baseball related in a while. Unfortunately (or maybe fortunately), I only had $8 in my PayPal and I couldn’t afford the $14 minimum for two teams, which may have been a good thing since everything else sucked other than that Mays card. Well, Steve ended up with the Giants and he got the big hit of the break. Knowing that I am a huge Giants fan, he graciously sent over all the other Giants cards from the break along with a ton of other Giants cards. What were my favorites from the package? I don’t think you need to even ask that question.

Thanks Steve! You made my day a little brighter with a little dose of Lincecum cards. As you can see, the one on the right is actually a game-used card! That was very, very generous of him. Steve, if you’re reading this, I am shipping out a package to you today, as we speak. Don’t expect too much as it was all the White Sox cards I had right now because I haven’t bought anything else lately. I will send over more during Christmas time because the bulk of my random cards from other teams are at home (this goes for everyone else as well), but I hope the cards that I send over will hold you over until then.

That brings my Lincecum collection up to 55 cards. You know, Upper Deck X isn’t that bad…okay, maybe it is, but when it comes to Lincecum cards, they’re all good. I like how the game-used jersey at least is framed in a die-cut X window rather than just a plain square one.

I’m really itchin’ to bust of box of something right now, anything. What’s the next new baseball product coming out that’s worth getting? Anyone?
