A card from Napkin Doon

A few weeks back I sent Napkin Doon some pressed pennies that didn't fit in my collection. When I told him that I was sending them he begged me for my address. I stalled. I hemmed. I hawed. I didn't want him sending me cards. This wasn't a trade. I finally relented and to the post office he went.

 Here's what arrived.
2009 Topps Sterling
White Frame
Carl Erskine (card # 118)
numbered 01/50
Oisk!  Over the past few weeks I've been having mixed feelings about collecting.  Nothing seems to inspire me.  I didn't buy anything this last weekend even though were some good deals online.  Partly it was I didn't really know what I wanted.  I really need to get my checklists in order.  Partly it was that family was in town.  It is better to spend time with family than to sort cards.  Most times, it is.

This card is resparking my interest.  It looks good.  It is of a player I collect.  I like it.

Thanks, Napkin.


  1. (*looks for pennies and a hammer*)

  2. I'm hammered now...oh wait, it's the pennies that need to be smashed.

  3. Do you still have this or any other Carl Erskine cards? I am his grandson and an avid collector. I would be greatly interested in anything you may have. Let me know. Thanks.
