Dennis from the Too Many Verlanders blog was kind enough to send me a great bubble mailer filled with various cards from different parts of my collection. One of the two bricks in the envelope contained just 3 items...
The Adam Lind auto is the 2nd one of those in my collection. It's as thick as a brick. I've seen a few of the Joe Sakic mini jerseys over the years, but never decided to pull the trigger and buy one. Now I don't have to.
A few miscellaneous Blue Jays cards came this way, along with a 1974-75 Topps card featuring Ron Ellis of the Leafs and Don Marcotte of the Boston Bruins. I can't say for sure, but I believe the goalie in the background to be Doug Favell. The Leafs unfortunately were swept 4 straight in the quarter final series against the Bruins.
Some miscellaneous Joe Sakic cards. The 2000 NHL all star game card will be an upgrade over the one I currently have as the point on the star is sharp on this card. I haven't checked them against my have list, but I believe I need 2 or 3 of the cards of the other 4.
A trio of Leafs past and present. I believe that Nazem Kadri will be a victim of the Leafs cap crunch next summer and be traded somewhere to help sign both Matthews and Marner.
Finally, Dennis sent me a bakers dozen serial #'d cards. I really haven't put much thought into the Serial Numbered hockey set, having only bought a few cards over the past few months. But Dennis always manages to remind me that the set is still alive, and needs tending. I'll have to update the page sometime in the next few days.
Dennis, thank you so much for the cards, they are appreciated. Merry Christmas to you and yours as well Dennis.
Thanks for reading!
