Expect the unexpected, part 2

As mentioned last night, I received 2 envelopes with unexpected surprises in them yesterday.

The 2nd envelope was from Tom over at The Angels, In order blog.  I had sent Tom some cards that I did not need when I saw that he was collecting John Olerud.  I didn't want or expect anything in return, it was just one of those things that I felt was right, and well I just sent him the cards. 

I got these in return, totally from 2 sets that I have been working on for a little while now.

First, '09 O Pee Chee

This group here represented 1/3 of my want list, for those who aren't quick at math I'm down now to 14 on my want list, which I went ahead and ordered from Sportlots yesterday.  It will be good to have that set off the books!

2nd, here come a few cards from the '77 Topps set:

What would a package from The Angels, In order be without a couple of Angels in it??  Bob Grich, and Bobby Bonds makes it even better!   Those 4 off of my list takes me down to 176 cards needed to complete the set.  Still a ways to go, but it's been fun working on this set and reliving the first set I ever collected as a kid.

Totally unexpected, and very much enjoyed.  Tom, thank you very much for the package, it really is appreciated!!

Thanks for reading, Robert


  1. Congrats on finishing up '09 OPC. My list is down to 29 cards so hopefully I can find a bunch at the show tomorrow and finish it up really soon.

  2. Surprise baseball card packages are always the best. Congrats!
