Metaphorically... he's a leaking dam flooding my collection with sports cards. Every time I try to even things up with him, he hits me back with two, three, and sometimes four more packages. This past week I received my 7th JBF care package of the year and this time around it was reminiscent of one of those Collector Crate mystery boxes that several bloggers out there have been subscribing to.
If you're familiar with these mystery boxes, then you know they come with cool sports trinkets like this foam finger:
However Wes took things to the next level and threw in a Mark McGwire commemorative baseball...
a pair of Kenner Starting Lineups...
and a sealed Golden Greats of Baseball VHS tape:
Another Collector Crate staple are their packs of cards... and guess what Wes included those too:
He went one step further and included three sets and a cool 1988 Topps box bottom that features three San Diego Padres:
The final Collector Crate component are the singles they include in each of their boxes. From what I've seen they'll try to pick singles based on your favorite teams... which is what exactly JBF did too:
Sorry Collector Crate... you guys aren't in JBF's league.
Wes... thank you for the amazing care package. I had a great time opening it up and slowly going through each and every item you sent. I'm slowly accumulating some stuff for your collection, but it probably won't be in the next round of packages I ship out. I need to hit eBay and COMC since you've already cleaned me out of all of my Crimson Tide, Josh Willingham, and Arizona Cardinals cardboard.
But what's the saying? Good things come to those who wait. Thanks again buddy!
Happy Sunday and sayonara!
