i got some mail yesterday. three baseball card related items. the first was a 1968 topps ron hunt card that i had sent off in hopes of an autograph. mr. hunt returned it with a request for $15 donated to his baseball school. fair enough, but i don't think i will follow through.
the second package was from cliff at capewood's collections. cliff sent me a nice stack of cards after i inquired about a trade. we had done good business a while back, and the cards he sent this time were absolutely fantastic. like this 2011 topps heritage rafael furcal
1988 score tim crews
2003 upper deck victory kaz ishii
2007 topps hit parade luis gonzalez
here's reed johnson's only dodger card - a 2010 topps update number
here's vicente padilla on a 2011 topps walmart black card
cliff also sent me my first non-dodger russell martin card
there were also a couple of cards featuring a dodger teammate of martin who joined him in yankees camp this year, ronnie belliard and his 2010 topps update card
thanks cliff and ronnie, and ron hunt too for filling my mailbox yesterday!
