I'm overdue for tipping my cap to fellow cardspherians who've sent me mail recently.
Last for today is a bright selection of 1987 Bohemian Hearth Padres from friend of the blog and past guest-blogger, Alex T. I managed to complete this regional oddball set a while back, a sentimental favorite, but many of my cards (that originally came packaged with loaves of bread) were creased and/or suffered from browning/discoloration. So when Alex said he might be able to help me upgrade my set, I jumped to attention. These cards don't pop up very often.
A couple extreme before & after examples: what I had on the left, upgrades from Alex on the right. Night and day! My set is looking a lot nicer now. I still wouldn't mind upgrading the Gwynn and Kruk someday, but won't hold my breath there.
Thanks again, Alex! Much appreciated!
That'll do it for today. Thanks for reading and enjoy the rest of your weekend.
