I got an email from Rob asking if I wanted a White Sox car flag that he had picked up somewhere. He said it was the old Sox logo that he knows that I like. I said sure, so he sent away. I was pleasantly surprised when I received it last week.
The above mentioned flag, which is way cool. But along with that he sent this hat. Which if you’ve ever noticed my profile pic, I wear hats. But along with those great items, he sent a huge stack of White Sox cards.
These are just the highlights. A couple of Baines, one being a mini and the other I’m thinking might be my first 87 fleer (that’s kind of pathetic isn’t it). A Fisk, a Bo Jackson, and there were a few Robin Ventura’s. I really enjoyed seeing the father-son card, which if memory serves, is from the 1985 Topps set. I remember those from my childhood. But if that wasn’t enough, he sent these.
This is a cool set. It was the whole set, and it was still in plastic. Of course, I had to open it. The bad part is, I’m going to have to do the same thing I did with the 2011 Topps Team Set from the Diamond Giveaway, take out the Konerko for it’s collection and hope I can find another one to complete this set again. I’ve watched listings on ebay for that card but I just can’t drop $3.50 for a single more-or-less base card.
He said he didn’t want anything in return for the flag, but I’m definitely going to have to find him a little something for this awesome package. Your truly a great man, you know, for a Cubs fan. Be sure to check out his MLB recognized blog at “Blue Batting Helmet”.
