Tonight's post showcases a killer package from P-Town Tom from Waiting 'til Next Year fame. This package arrived in an odd sized package and had me puzzled before I cracked into it.
Next up are some cards from the 1952 Bowman President release. I was able to complete the 1956 President set that I believe was put out by Topps with some similar art work. Tom knocked off 7 cards from this list including one of my favorites - US Grant. I believe based on some genealogy work done by a relative that I am a direct decedent of our 17th US president - I have thought about starting a Grant collection but haven't pulled the trigger yet.
I was going to recap the history of the bat but thought I would let Tom's own words share the story.
I was very touched that he thought of me and sent it my way, my kids were pretty pumped as well. I haven't put it up yet but they helped me select a spot on the wall for the bat
Here is an up close picture of the bat label...
Thanks Tom for such a generous and thoughtful package!!!
