Over a month ago now, on Halloween to be exact, Shawn did a post featuring a number of horror themed sketch cards that he had created. Within a day or two those same sketch cards were then put into a contest, which I then promptly entered. As per usual, the randomizer showed nothing but disdain for my name and put me at #6 out of the seven people entered. Normally that's a bad thing, but in this instance, even that mean ol' randomizer couldn't whammy away my hopes. You see, even though I was number six, I still got my number one choice...which was the sketch of Pale Man from Pan's Labyrinth.
Part of the reason it took me so long to get around to doing this post was that I couldn't figure out a way to express how much I liked this card as it really is one of those times where saying "I really love this card", just doesn't seem like enough.
1. Card to be featured in future post
2. 1972-73 Topps Dr. J rookie
3. Pale Man sketch card
4. Card to be featured in future post
5. 1958 Topps Batting Foes Mantle/Aaron
You see what I mean? A top five list in which you can only see three out of the five seems kind of lame. So since I can't think of any more elaborate way to express my feelings for the card, I will just have to say that I like this much:
|For anyone wondering, that's not actually me, it's just a good representation of how I feel about the card.|
And since I still haven't added any want lists (I keep meaning to get to that), Shawn actually took the time to look through some of my older posts in an attempt to send along a few more things to keep the sketch card company. He could not have chosen two better cards, even if there had been some want lists to scour through.
But wait, there's more:
Thank you again, Shawn! This was an incredibly generous and well thought out envelope of cards, for which I was most grateful to receive.
Thanks for taking a moment to look at my page.
