TMV presents Too Many Christmas Cards!

I may be slacking big-time on getting other things posted, but I'm happy that I can finally make this announcement today so I'm bumping everything else for now.

What am I announcing?  Nothing major, just free Christmas cards for a whole bunch of you is all.
I know, right?

Back in November I thought about coming up with a contest where the winner would end up getting $20 worth of their wish list cards off of COMC because promotions were right around the corner.  In the end I didn't like how it looked, so instead I decided to do something that would benefit way more of you.  As a matter of fact, I made it my mission to send at least something small to every single person who sent me cards that I showed off on this blog and/or TMM.  I've loved trading with all of you and this seems like a perfect time to give back.  That evolved slightly into a list of lucky recipients that includes all of the above plus a few other favorite bloggers.
Wow.  Such MSPaint.  Very quality.
In the last few weeks I've landed cards from shows, COMC, eBay, Sportlots, and other sources with many of you in mind.  Some of you might just get a PWE with a few things, many of you will get a bubble mailer, and at least one of you has at least a smallish box to look forward to.  The common denominator is that each person will get something(s) tailored to their PC(s), and in most cases that will include at least one hit.  I won't go into details, so if you're getting something you'll just have to wait and see what it is!  I thought about surprising people but I think it'll be more fun for people to get to anticipate something besides coal in their stockings this year, so if your name is on this list, congrats!:

The COMC package was the last piece of the puzzle and since that arrived today I expect to start sending cards out by tomorrow.  Probably not all at once--have you seen that list?!--but I'd like to have them all out by Friday at the latest.  I hope everyone enjoys the free swag from their not-so-secret Santa!
Merry Christmas from TMV!


  1. Sweet! Thank you for this holly jolly post, and in advance for the cards.

    1. Ok, since you commented I'll go ahead and reveal that one of your Christmas cards is a Christmas card, since you'll know what that means.

    2. I think I know what that means! Congrats, defgav!

  2. Ummm.....I have no idea what you said after "bunch". Or I don't care.

    1. HA! It's just as hard getting through your posts with all those pictures of your girlfriend...

  3. You and that guy who commented above me have been the most generous towards sending me cards, knowing I can't always reciprocate. For that, I'm definitely grateful. If I don't talk to you again before the holidays, have a Merry Christmas and as always, Go Blue!

    1. You guys need to form a group called "Card-Collecting Jeffs" or something. Merry Christmas to you, come home Jim, and GO BLUE!

  4. Huzzah!

    Boopy Doopy Doop Boop Sex.

    1. You got the reference! Cool, coolcoolcool. (Six trade posts and a mooooooooovie!)

  5. Thanks in advance.. Happy Holidays

    1. And to you as well, my vintage-trading friend!

  6. Awesome -- thanks in advance for your generosity!!

    1. Thanks! Sorry I didn't send anything your way--I know we haven't traded in a while, and of course shipping across the border doesn't help, but maybe next year...
