jeff at 2x3 heroes sent me one of his plain white envelopes a while back, stuffed with a third of a nine-pocket sheet. each of the three pockets had some cool cards in it, and jeff added a note saying 'guess which pocket was not from a nickel box. let's see if i can figure it out.
pocket #1 - 1987 fleer fernando valenzuela all-star team insert
1985 fleer limited edition steve garvey
2004 topps all-time fan favorites steve garvey
all-time fan favorite cards shouldn't be selling for a nickel. especially ones with steve garvey on them.
pocket #2 - 1990 pacific baseball legends steve garvey
2001 upper deck decade 1970's steve garvey
2013 topps hanley ramirez chasing history insert
it's not the foil version, so it could be in a nickel box, i suppose
pocket #3 - 2013 topps mini adrian gonzalez
2014 topps gypsy queen yasiel puig
2014 topps gypsy queen yasiel puig glove stories insert
ok, i think it is pretty obvious which pocket did not feature cards from the nickel box. puig is still in the cases at the card shows, and i'm hoping that he plays well enough to keep his cards under glass for a long time.
thanks for the cards jeff!
