Domo Arigato: Matthew @ Number 5 Type Collection

This morning, I arrived at work and discovered a big white envelope inside of my mailbox. Matthew over at Number 5 Type Collection shipped a bunch of baseball cards to my school.

Last week he held a Spring Training Giveaway and I was fortunate enough to get two teams: San Francisco Giants (for my students) & San Diego Padres (for my collection).

Here's a snapshot at what I received:

San Francisco Giants

San Diego Padres

I was really stoked to find this Swinging Friar card in the stack. Usually I buy specific singles, instead of packs and boxes... so these cool lower end cards don't usually make their way into my collection.

Thanks Matthew... both my students and I really appreciate your generosity.

Have a great week everyone... and sayonara!

    1. Hey Padres Zombie... just shot you an email and the card you're referring to is #369 from the 2008 Upper Deck baseball set. Best of luck on grabbing that card. You might want to check out Sportlots or Check Out My Cards.
