$30 a week hookup

For a card blogger, there is no sweeter email to receive than one of the variety along the lines of, "Hey, I got some cards to send you that I think may have a place in your collection. Just need your address. You don't need to send me anything back, just want to help you out a little."

Ah, that's the best!

Robert at $30 a Week Habit was generous enough to bestow one of these on me a few days ago.

Let's take a look!

Sweet vintage! I'd love to put together 1962 Topps someday. Though I'm currently focused on..

1973 Topps! Always great to check some cards off the list.

Robert also bolstered my hockey collection considerably with lots of Gretzky and Lemieux cards.

As I've mentioned before, I'm not very knowledgeable when it comes to hockey, but I like to branch out my collection here and there, especially with all-time greats such as these guys.

Lastly, we've got some Padres..

..including a Peavy plus a couple #'d gold parallels from 2011. Very nice!

Big thanks again, Robert! Extremely kind of you to hook me up with these cards. I hope to return the favor before too long. I foolishly tossed the package before jotting down your return address, so I won't be able to surprise you with anything, but please, please get in touch if I ever post any trade bait that catches your eye!
