Sweet! Big rookie cards I needed for my McCutchen and Altuve PCs, respectively.
Early cards of a pair of today's best third basemen, Arenado and Castellanos.
More big-name minor league cards.
And notable Bowman RCs up the wazoo.
More Bowman highlights.
Additions for the Arod and Jeter PCs.
One random basketball card, and a nice one at that, with this sparkly, diecut Kyrie Irving.
At first glance, this would seem to be regular ol' 2002 Topps Pudge, but no...
2002 Topps Kanebo Gum Japanese card! HOFer import! Very cool.
And this begins the Japanese-cards portion of the post.
More special Nippon Professional Baseball cards featuring Sadaharu Oh (home run king), Kazuhisa Makita (he's on the Padres now), Tetsuto Yamada (sparkly), and Wladimir Balentien (didn't do much in the majors, but has since had a fine career in Tokyo).
Here are a couple fun ones, including a lenticular card from 1996 and what seems to be a vintage (Calbee?) card on the right, though I couldn't say what's the story with them.
Somewhat "NSFW" picture warning. Proceed with caution.
Oh man! These might have been the most exciting cards of the package for me. I'm an admitted
I think this is called an Icon box or something, right? Features a couple mini boxes of cards. Mariya Nagao here keeps clothed, though scantily clad.
Gonna end this post here rather than stretch it out too long, but man, still plenty of other good stuff in the package.. a bunch more rookie cards, minor league Topps cards, numbered parallels, etc.
Thanks so much, Zippy! This was a zippy zapping to remember. I'll round up a return for you soon.
