A not so Minon package from the Card Papoy

I received my first package from Kevin over in France. I do try to limit the International trades due to the NOW overwhelming shipping cost. Earlier this year I was able to slip 2 stuffed long PWEs to Kevin (a few Andruw Jones) for $1.50 each. Not anymore, sheez!  The contest package I sent to Canada was $21.95 in the box I had it in, so I removed the box, brown papered them saved $5.00.

Anyways, Kevin hit back with some return fire. Mainly the really really shiny kind.

All 4 of these 2014 Bowman Chrome Refractors are serial numbered the same. I have no idea why the Freeman shows up/ looks so much darker than the others. Kevin sent a few more from this set too.

2 Blue Refractors, and again Santana shows up so much darker. I would say that a light in the scanner was not working properly, however that Santana was not in the same row vertically or horizontally as the Freeman.  But, hey let's look at more from this set.

A Purple.

Kevin wrapped up the Bowman with these 2 Green refractors.  These are appreciated so much, as one can tell from my want lists the "COLORS" I just don't have much.  Let's look at what else Kevin sent.

A few from 2013 Topps Chrome.

Okay these two may not be shiny like the others, but they were still on my wantlist!  Thanks Kevin for the trade.

I pulled this Orange Brave out of one of my factory sets.

See ya (not really, but you know what I mean) tomorrow.


  1. Have you tried a private shipping company? This would probably allow you to compare rates since most private shipping companies work with multiple agencies and allow price comparisons. A private shipping company also adds a layer of convenience since they will pick your package up at home. This is how I would ship because I really think it's the best way to get a great shipping rate.
