There are a lot of dual cards out there that feature Griffey and a young player that doesn't end up going anywhere or a single-season superstar that doesn't stand the test of time. Here is the exception: Griffey and Larkin. There's a lot of skill on this little card.
The Reds had a great lineup in the mid-00's. I'm really surprised when I read about how unsuccessful they were in that time. Reds fans, I'd like your input on this.
Geaux Hornets! Er, I means geaux Pelicans? Hm. That sounds weird. Anyway, I don't know who this guy is.
There is a beast living in my soul that thirsts for all the Griffeys of the Earth, and it is sated not just by new Griffeys but also by duplicates. Bert at Swing and a Pop Up sent me a package loaded with delicious duplicates of Griffey goodness. Bert, your offering has pleased the beast.
Last but certainly not least, Spankee from My Cardboard Mistress sent me a package he assured me I would enjoy. It was gigantic because the cards inside were stored inside this:
I'm a sucker for small boxes. I don't know why, I just like them. This one shows a Griffey signature which is amazingly cool. The cards inside were just as impressive:
That's five serial-numbered Griffeys. And that's not even all of them:
That big postcard-sized mamma-jamma is also serial numbered! Plus that Fleer Triple Crown card is news to me, and who doesn't love collector coins? He sent two.
Thanks, Adam! You were right - this was a really fun one to go through.
I've just sent out a massive wave of trade packages. My memory is not great (thanks, college), so I'm hoping I'm square with everybody. I try to keep up with everybody using an Excel document, but it's far from perfect.
And if you sent me something and have gotten nothing in return, don't be afraid shoot me an e-mail. I embrace every opportunity to mail out free cardboard.
