My sister in Ocala Kathy, bought me cards for my birthday this year (1983 Traded set), then mailed them to me. Well, I kind of expected her to get me cards for Christmas this year too. I drove home and straight back a couple of weeks ago to drop my presents off for those back home, and grab presents for me. I knew instantly that the heavy package was baseball cards. It kind of scared me knowing she buys everything off of Amazon, but I held out hope because the shape made me think it might be a hobby box of Bowman Platinum.
Yeah, my first instinct was correct. I did actually search the box knowing what I would find and not find. There were two cards unexpected.
Same here. Turns out I already have those two vintage, so off to the dupes box they went. Not the shiny stuff like Greg got. LOL. I am going to have re-iterate to her that I already own most cards that she will find. I can't fault her, she means well.....she really is trying to appease my card collecting habit. Um Hobby. I am the youngest, and she is 8 years older than me, she was out of the house by the time I started collecting. I plan on showing her my web site the next time I can spend a little time with her now that she is trying to move my hobby along. I want to do that in person so that I can explain it a little to her. I think then all will be GREAT going forward. My only problem is being able to go home for about a week. I haven't been able to do that in 3+ years. I'll have to make it happen in 2021 so that she doesn't waste her money. I have no idea what she paid for that box, and add in shipping too. She's already asking me if I got anything good in there. I love her so I have to get that done sooner rather than later.
