When I opened up the package, it started off great. Jim sent me these cards in hopes of generating some good karma to help the Giants get into the World Series and boy did it work! I am pretty jealous because we have exchanged a couple emails and he got to attend the championship parade, I thought about dropping everything and heading north but it was quite possibly my busiest work week of the year. Jim also sent me a link to some photos that I happened to miss, check out these double rainbow photos. It was definitely a sign of great things to come.
I am thinking someone should produce a new series of cards to catch up. This year would definitely feature the Kung Fu Panda and his 3 HRs in Game 1. Not exactly sure what the 2010 card would feature, probably the Beard and Posey's embrace at the end.
Jim also included this cool Sportcaster card of the Giant's former home of Candlestick Park. I don't recall going when they had the artificial turf as showcased in this card, they had changed it back to natural turf by the time I started going. I do however believe that I sat in about this area for a Giants vs. Dodgers doubleheaders one year. The Stick was old and nasty but I do miss it.
Finally the highlight of the package is the McCovey postcard. I loved all the content but whenever you can add a new item to your collection of your favorite player it is a great day. Now I just need to figure what the heck to send Jim back.
Thanks for a great trade Jim!
