Some things have happened in the card blogosphere that have been nice and I should have blogged about them. But I didn't. So, this is an in-road back to blogging for me.
Several weeks ago I received a small package in the mail from everyone's favorite blogger, Mr. Night Owl.
I had sent him some cards back when the snow was still on the ground in his neck of the woods. It may still be there, I don't really know. He sent me a baker's dozen Hershisers and a few other cards. Greg likes to post so many card images that it makes my phone melt. I must abandon the reader service on the phone and run to a computer so that I can see them in all their glory. I'll make it easy on your phones. Only three cards in this post.
Greg is one of a few Hershiser collectors in the circle of bloggers. Okay, what doesn't he collect? Well, I've cracked his code. He doesn't collect Hershiser in an Indians uniform. Or in a Giants uniform. Maybe the Mets, too. I don't know. I guess Hershiser in a Dodger uniform.
So, he scoured my want list and knocked a few out.
|1997 Leaf Fractal Matrix Die Cuts SX|
Orel Hershiser (card # 76)
Now here's a pair of Giants cards Greg wanted to be gone from his stacks.
|1999 Fleer Ultra|
Orel Hershiser (card # 144)
|1999 Fleer Ultra - Gold Medallion Edition|
Orel Hershiser (card # 144G)
How do I know that this one is the Gold Medallion Edition? It says so on the back of the card. If I ever get around to scanning again, I'll show you the back of it so you'll believe me. And yes it looks like he sat on a painted park bench.
So, thank you, Greg for kicking my butt into blogging again. Guilt is a fantastic motivator. I'll be showing off more of his generous offering to me.
