Those who are familiar with the Harry Potter novels (or movies), will know who Hedwig is. For those not familiar with the story, Hedwig is Harry's devoted pet owl. And by now I'm sure you know where this post is heading...
I recently sent a package to the one, the only Night Owl that included a number of 1983 Kellogg's cards as well as a
No, the package didn't disintegrate. And it wasn't even beat up through the USPS- if you can believe that. Okay, on to the cards...
I had 'claimed' the 2017 Fire Ken Griffey Jr card off of Owl's post where he said he felt Burned from his purchase of the product. I guess I would have, too, had I bought the product. Not crazy 'bout the colors in the Cruz and Jr cards- but I do like the design and colors featured on Cano's card. Topps should have done them all like that one.
Two more cards of The Kid that I didn't have, and the Lee card will go into the Project USS Mariner binder. Yes, Dae-Ho, that is exactly how I feel.
Smyly. More like frowny. Will probably be non-tendered.
Okay, back to cards that matter. Felix x3. Need all of them, so it's kind of like the King's Crowning Moment. *Raises arms and fists in triumphant joy at obtaining new cards I need*
Two parallels of a man who should be in the Hall of Fame. Maybe this year. When it comes to cards, I feel conflicted about 'Gar. M's legend who had the biggest hit in team history but I just can't bring myself to jumping all-in on collecting his cards. Maybe one of these years.
The last of the cards I'll show (Greg sent more than just these featured) are three from 2017 Topps Update. They'll probably end up in the USS Mariner binder. Pagan was traded a few days ago, so I can't imagine him appearing on any more M's cards; Motter- who knows. Yes, he's got 'the flow' but not much else to offer. Bench player in '18 or a ticket to AAA. Either way he may not be on any more major cards. Rzepczynski seemed to do alright against lefties, but I thought he'd be a little productive overall. Another possible exclusion from '18 card sets.
Thanks again, Greg, for the trade. Happy hunting as you look for those
