A Rare Two-Card Mailday Today

Maildays in general have been rare for this collection, but today was a pretty good day:
1.  Hooray for Tek progress!  This is Pattern 71 and a member of a trading forum sent it to me for free.  I am down to needing just nine more Tek cards.  Progress has been very slow of late, but it is moving.

2.  I love this card.  This is the 2004 Upper Deck R-Class First Class Autograph card.  I love the photo on the card and the fact that this is a rare White Sox autograph card.  In fact, it is the only one.  There is a 2005 Upper Deck First Pitch Signature Stars autograph that pictures Alomar with the White Sox, but it has a Texas Rangers logo.

So that's the terrific mailday I had today.  Still no new Alomar cards in 2016 so far.  I still have hope for Topps Archives.


  1. Wow...your (our) prayers have been answered... two different Sandy autos in Archives!

  2. Saw that. Looking very forward to it.
