Paul in Louisiana sent me a package a few months ago that included a Joe Tinker T206. He’s up to it again with a high end package of Cubs cards.
It was delivered in a medium flat rate box. Inside was a 400-count box and a bubble mailer. Assuming the bubble mailer contained hits, I saved it for last. As I opened the box, there were several Cubs from high end 2018 sets that I didn’t have. While not high end, Topps Finest is a product I haven’t picked up this year.
Bowman High Tek is an awesome set. I debated buying a few boxes upon release, and ended up not buying any. This is a really sweet Adbert Alzolay, along with Kris Bryant and Carl Edwards Jr. The Alzolay is from this year’s set, Bryant is 2017, and Edwards is from 2016.
Another beautiful release is Topps Museum Collection. My first Cubs from the 2018 set here with Ryne Sandberg, Javier Baez, Anthony Rizzo, Yu Darvish, and Kris Bryant.
A 2018 Topps Inception Bryant.
Ian Happ from 2018 Donruss. It’s serial numbered 26/187.
Two nice rookies of Bryant and Willson Contreras on 1st Bowman cards.
All of that (and more) came in the box. Now it’s on to the bubble mailer. As I expected, it was filled with hits. How about this! 1960 Post Ernie Banks.
From Topps Museum Collection, a Bryant Quad relic numbered 27/99. Whoah!
Ian Happ Topps Tier One bat relic numbered 322/335.
Dillon Maples Stadium Club autographed rookie.
Another Topps Tier One hit. Kyle Schwarber autograph numbered 47/160. Wow!
Finally, something that’s been on my list. A unique relic. I’ve been loosely looking for something like a cleat relic, etc. and this Victor Caratini matches what I’ve been searching. It’s a button relic and it’s numbered 7/10. Sweet!
Well, Paul has outdone himself. I’ll be heading to Rosemont, Illinois (Chicago suburb) for a show next weekend and I’ll be searching for some stuff to send down to the bayou.
