i did not expect old foul cardboard

nor did i expect the spanish inquisition, but then again, who does?  a while back, i sent a pwe with a couple of yankee cards for kyle, whose dad chris runs old foul cardboard - no big deal.  i certainly didn't expect a return package.

that means i was more than pleasantly surprised last week.  i received some good stuff, like this 1975 topps walter alston/dodger team card with dodger stadium in the background
the orange and brown color combo isn't the best, but…

here's a 2008 upper deck clayton kershaw 20th anniversary card
kershaw made his debut in 2008.  less than 6 years later, he's the highest paid pitcher in big league history. well deserved, i might add.

2012 bowman platinum andre ethier
i like the way that card scans.

2012 topps chrome matt kemp
i wish that card scanned better.

2013 topps update jp howell
i still have quite a few dodger update cards that i should showcase before 2014 flagship hits the shelves later this month.  stay tuned for some puig and ryu sp craziness.

here are a couple of double play turns from update that were also in the package - matt carpenter
and didi gregorius - emerald style!
thanks chris!  i'll get another pwe or two out - no need to send anything in return - although i will probably wait until i have some 2014's to send.

Nnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnobody expects the Spanish Inquisition!

...I don't really have anything to add, it just seemed like someone should acknowledge the reference.
