Another package that arrived last week was from a trade with Jason in New York. The trade originated from my post selling medium flat rate boxes of hockey cards for $20 shipped.

Allen & Ginter Has Become More Than Another Baseball Card Release

Sometime around 2012 or 2013 I began dabbling with baseball cards after a few years away from the hobby.
