Gotta love an unexpected PWE. Jon from the A Penny Sleeve for your Thoughts very thoughtfully sent me a half dozen cards that fit nicely into a couple of collections I have.
3 Blue Jays cards, all I'm pretty sure I don't own. Red bordered A.J. Burnett from 2006 Topps Turkey Red is something I'm sure I haven't seen come across the desk.
Had no idea that Gold medallion cards from Ultra came die cut. 2004 Alex Rios is another welcome addition.
I had never heard of Brian Sellier before; he spent 2001 playing in the Oakland system after spending his only season as a Blue Jay prospect playing in the NY Penn League for the Queens Kings.
The Ichiro collection is starting to build nicely. Everyone knows I'm a sucker for serial numbered cards, and the 2 Moments & Milestones double my total to 4. Needed them both.
I'd seen cards like the '17 Topps series 2 Silver Pack card on the left on the blogs, but didn't think I'd ever have one in hand. Well, now I do.
I sent Jon a quick tweet to let him know that the cards arrived, which he appreciated. Jon mentioned that he felt bad that he didn't have more to send me.
6 cards for 2 collections, all of them needed in a surprise PWE? Doesn't get much better than that from my perspective...
Thanks for reading, Robert
