The man they call Spankee was at it again recently, sending me another great envelope filled with Tigers and Wolverines. Here's the damage:
DID SOMEBODY SAY "SANDWICH"?
Oh hi, Prince Fielder.
I'M PRETTY SURE I HEARD THE WORD "SANDWICH."
Yeah, my bad, I was using it as a verb, not a noun.
SO NO SANDWICH?
Nope, not this time.
*Prince Fielder glares at me and then waddles away to wash himself with a rag on a stick*
Ok, so that was a weird interruption, but yeah, Prince made it into the package, which was mighty generous of Adam because those three cards probably added about $10 worth of postage.
Harry Heilmann, a 1952 honoree. Below them is a pair of AJax inserts, highlighted by a 2013 Black Refractor numbered 001/100; nice find, Spankee! Al Kaline, who put the OF in HOF, is next up with a couple inserts, and next to his Tall Boy is a Mini of fun-to-watch 2B Ian Kinsler.
All in all some really nice cards, but they can't help be overshadowed a bit by another (future) HOFer in one of the more oddbally forms I've seen recently:
Appropriately enough for representing Detroit, a Pudge Upper Deck issue (possibly custom-made for this product) is paired with a mini Ford F-150 in this UD venture from 2007. It looks like other teams were available as were various vehicle models including a Ford Mustang and Peterbilt tractor/trailers. Definitely a fun item to add to my oddball stuff!
Thanks for taking the time once again to send some stuff my way, Adam! I have a few things set aside for you and will likely ship them your way soon.
Readers, please also make sure to head over to TMM tonight to see the rest of the package Adam sent me. Also, never forget to
