So here's another trade package thank-you post. Today's mailer comes courtesy of Captain Canuck:
Brian asked if I'd be okay shipping north of the border, which I was. I've noticed that some traders won't because the cost is prohibitive. (It's a major reason why I don't sell eBay items internationally anymore.) After shipping three packages to Canada for $9.50 each I might have to do the same - which would be a drag because there are so many great traders up north.
This is the kind of mailer I'd be missing out on if I stopped shipping to Canada:
Ten cards for my 2015-16 O-Pee-Chee Retro Franken-set. I'll scan each card individually once I complete it (it's only 100 cards)
A nice stack of Devils, including my first Portfolio cards...
...and my first card from 2017-18. The Cammalleri Ice is very nice, too. I was surprised the Devs bought him out in the off-season, but I wont be surprised if he has a bounce-back year with his original team, the L.A. Kings.
Brian sent some Sox my way as well, including Bowman prospects past and present:
...a rookie star with tons of HYPE, and some award-winning Sox stars:
I don't disagree with those who say Justin Verlander should have won last year's Cy Young over Rick Porcello - but I will strongly disagree with anyone who says Chris Sale doesn't deserve it this year.
This might be my favorite card of the lot (though the Cammi Ice base is a close second)
I know Topps doesn't always match the date/year on the card to the photo, but Nomar looks so young in this pic; if it's not from '94 it's certainly not far off.
Thanks for the trade, Brian. I appreciate the cross-border trades, I know how expensive it is to ship internationally...
Damn, Canada. You've got hockey everywhere, a leader that isn't embarrassing, and your postal rates are cheap?
Got room for one more up there?
Hope you all have a great Labour Day weekend, eh.
