Last post went with ham, this time I mixed it up. Maybe next time I'll make a pork shoulder joke or something?
Anyways, the great Night Owl sent me some cards recently in return for some goodies I sent him. I didn't really send him the stuff intending for a trade...it was very much more a gesture of
because he's definitely one of the best in the card blogging world.
But he sent me some stuff anyways because he's cool like that, so as I tend to do, let me show ya'll SOME CARDS!
We start with the Hambones, both of the 2015 variety:
Owl also sent me a ton of another CF, who regardless of Hamilton's career path will likely always be considered the better of the two: Ken Griffey Jr.
I LOVE this first card
A few early 90's entries from Leaf and Donruss:
1991 Donruss, on the other hand, has one of my favorite Griffeys of all time:
Owl sent a few more Topps card to add to my baseball PCs too, specifically a yellow Brayan Peña and a Heritage Choo:
Yellow is kind of a ghastly border color for a card, but I'm mesmerized by it here and kind of really love it. As for the Choo, how can you not love Choo? I mean...yeah he's not living up to his contract right now, so I suppose some Rangers fans could have a beef, but he seems like an awesome guy having an awesome time most all of the time on the diamond. And I can get behind that!
Night Owl snuck in a few football cards in this package too, and they may be, even with all the other greatness, the coolest cards in the box. First we have a beautiful die cut card of Priest Holmes in his Ravens regalia:
It's sort of like Wave of the Future means Crown Royale, which I could get into as a set idea!
This last card is a set idea that everyone can get behind though, as it comes from Bowman Chrome. This one is especially nice, as it's a Chrome Gold Refractor, numbered to just 99 copies, of Corey Alston:
Thanks for getting me one step closer Night Owl!
