Monday marked my biggest Cubs card mailday in terms of total packages without my mail being held. Eight bubble mailers and boxes were delivered.
The largest package contained 3,118 Cubs cards and the smallest package was a single card purchased on eBay. The more than 3,000 cards came in a flat rate box from Billy . I’ll be putting together a package of Jose Canseco, Xander Bogaerts, and various other goodies for him.
The second box included more than 100 Cubs cards including several Kris Bryant. There was not a return address or note, so I’m not sure who this came from. If it was you, please let me know via direct message on Twitter or shoot me an email.
Another source of Cubs came via Sportlots. I’ve been looking for Bowman Chrome that was recently released and was able to knock off a few including some Aramis Ademan cards. To finish out my order I added some Javier Baez (of course) and Kris Bryant cards.
The rest of my eBay Bucks purchases arrived as I used my balance to pick up some Heritage Minors parallels, like a blue border Nelson Velazquez 26/99 and a Velazquez color swap 7/25.
And a pair of black border parallels of Adbert Alzolay (48/50) and Charcer Burks (48/50).
Finally, a few Bowman Chrome autographs. I picked up a base chrome Jose Albertos as well as the Albertos Refractor auto 350/499, and the base chrome auto of Charcer Burks.
