The contents of the prize weren't specified, so to say that I was slightly shocked by what arrived, would be an understatement:
Normally if someone sends me stuff, I try to scan and show everything, but there is just no way to do that with this hoard. So below you will see what I hope was a good representation of what was in the box.
I believe the custom is to start with this particular card:
|2003-04 Upper Deck Victory Michael Jordan #212|
|2013-14 Panini Crusade Blue|
|1993 Front Row Converse Grandmama #G7|
The back is just as good as the front:
|Various years of Past & Present|
|More Holograms! 1993-94 Upper Deck 3-D Standouts|
|2012-13 Panini Brilliance|
|A couple of Kobe's|
|2005-06 NBA Hoops MJ Profiles #MJ-7|
|2011-12 Past & Present Fireworks #14. This card looks way better in person.|
|2013 Panini Black Friday|
|2002 Upper Deck Twizzlers Team 2002 Alonzo Mourning #6|
|2013-14 Panini Select Tim Duncan Red Hot #22. Another card that looks way better in person.|
And finally, my favorite card from the whole batch:
|1997-98 Bowman's Best Tyus Edney Atomic Refractor #10|
Now I thought it might be fun to giveaway the Sam Perkins refractor (minus the dust on the scan), plus a few more things from whichever sport, team, etc. that is of interest to the winner. All you have to do is be the first person to leave a comment that correctly identifies who is the player behind Tyus Edney in the card above. If you were a basketball fan during the 90's I don't think this should be to difficult.
Thanks again, Wes! It might take a little while to find some stuff for you, but I will try to reciprocate your amazing generosity.
And finally, a song with only the loosest of ties to this post:
Thanks for taking a moment to look at my page.
