Today was an 'I love the mail' day. I seem to be having these days more often than 'I hate the mail' days, which is awesome. When I opened my mailbox today, it was just how I like to see it- stuffed with bubble mailers. There was one in there that came as a total surprise to me, and made me very curious the whole 4 minutes home. It came from Dan over at Grand Cards, and boy was it grand. Dan sent me the only 4 cards I had any interest in from the Wal-Mart Topps black set and made my day.
Here is what I got:
#4 Jones, Pujols & Holliday
#217 Pujols 2008 NL MVP
#290 Albert Pujols
#94 Adam Lind
I think I like this set better than the actual base set simply because it's something different. The blacked out backgrounds made the players images jump out, plus they just look a heck of a lot nicer to me.
Thanks so much Dan! You saved me from having to update my want list twice, since I never had a chance to add these then take them away. If anyone has any spare Curtis Granderson cards, send Dan an e-mail.
