I recently asked for some help in ridding myself of some 2014 dupes. Dime Box Nick sent me a want list, and of course Topps collation seemed to have gotten us with the some of the same wants. But I sent off a few cards to him.
In that original post I said I didn't necessarily need anything in return, but as bloggers always seem to do, Nick decided to send back some cards. When I got the envelope in the mail I thought "cool, he'll hit some of my 2014 needs too".
But there was more.
You've got sweaty Reggie and "What are you looking at?" Reggie.
Three year progression of Wally World parallels. Hey Topps, I'm one of the biggest parallel supporters, but let's keep the number of different parallels in the single digits, okay?
If I have a Halo Rickie, there's about a 99% chance Nick sent it to me. I think he's the only player who actually looked good in the Disney-era unis.
And then there's the horizontal of the best player in baseball, and a faux-rizontal of Upper Deck patting itself on the back. (Whoever came up with faux-rizontal, step forward. Brilliant).
Thanks Nick, you have outdone yourself. Again.
