Since I started this blog, I've felt that if I wanted people to open up and leave comments on my posts, then I had to be willing to leave comments on their posts. It's been a win/win situation.
I get to read interesting articles about sports cards, learn about and see cool sports cards, and hopefully they'll spend a few minutes checking out what I have to offer.
John over at Johnny's Trading Spot took it a step further. Not only does he take the time to comment on my blog, he also sent me some cards for being the most frequent commentor 3 years running.
This is the second week in a row that I've received a package from him. Last weekend, I showed off a prize package I won on his blog. This time around, he specifically targeted things I collect and sent an entire small flat rate box packed with cards. See for yourself:
If I were to guess, I'd say he sent 300 to 400 different cards. As you can see from the photos, there were tons of goodies.
In an effort to keep me from blabbing on and on about how awesome this care package is, I've narrowed things down to five cards that stood out:
#1: 2017 Topps Now Offseason #OS-80
I considered buying this card a few times, but never pulled the trigger. Now I won't need to. This is a huge addition to my Japanese PC.
#2: 1981 Kellogg's #26
#3: 1978 Hostess #120
Right now there are five pitchers who share the lead in MLB lead with two complete games each. Rick Langford pitched 22 consecutive complete games in 1980. Yeah. Let that sink in for a second.
#4: 1973 Topps #500
Meet the 1972 World Series Champions.
#5: 2004 UD Timeless Teams #83
This card brings me one step closer to completing this set. Only 41 more cards to go.
In an effort to pay it forward, I'm going to send out a care package to one lucky person who leaves a comment down below. I'll leave the comment window open for one week. After that, I'll throw everyone's name into the list randomizer at random.org, hit randomize five times, and whoever comes out on top will win the pay it forward care package.
In the meantime...
Thank you John for this very generous package. And thank you to everyone who has ever taken the time to read my blog and comment on my posts.
If I haven't reciprocated, there's a good chance I don't know about your blog. Feel free to leave a link to your blog down below and I'll add you to my reading list.
Happy Saturday and sayonara!
