During my move I neglected to post quite a few packages that I received from fellow collectors and over time I hope to remedy that to show my appreciation. The first such package I want to share was from fellow Giant fan and reader of the blog Jim aka mrhaverkamp. Jim is super generous and always fills some big holes in my Giants collection. This time he also helped out on some sets I am working on.
Usually I save the best for last but not this time. If you recall from several months back I bought a box of series 2 Conlon collection cards and started doing a pack by pack reveal on this blog. I think I stopped somewhere around 6 packs and will pick it up again in the near future. These cards showcase amazing photography of players from the past and some great info on the backs. Jim was able to send me a ton of Giants to fill out some of the other series. I would normally just pick my favorite few but I think the photography is so great I decided to scan them all. Enjoy:
Next up a trio of Kelloggs cards:
Next up are a dozen 1970 Topps cards. My goal this year was to get the set complete through card #459. I will probably share an update on that quest in the not too distant future.
And the final 5 cards:
Jim, thanks for the great package and sorry the post took too long. I am hoping the Giants bounce back next year and we have more joyous topics to talk about next year around this time!
