I’m admittedly bad about checking the mail unless I know that I’m expecting cards. The mailbox was full when I checked it yesterday, but there was a bubble envelope in there. I don’t have any outstanding purchases I’m waiting on and only have one that I haven’t received yet.
The return label definitely seemed familiar but I couldn’t figure out what it might be. I knew I’d seen a Scottsdale, Arizona address recently, but still couldn’t place it all. The package turned out to be from Invest in Baseball. You can also find them on Facebook, Twitter and eBay.
Once I got home, I checked out out and couldn’t believe my eyes. It was a card that was on my want list, but I hadn’t picked up yet.
It is the Steve Spurrier rookie card and it’s in fantastic shape! Thanks to this I now have both Spurrier cards from the somewhat scarce third series. I bought the “In Action” version a few weeks ago.
I’m not sure why, but Sean decided to send this to me and I can’t thank him enough. Actions like this are how you know that someone is one of the “good guys” in the hobby. I guess I’ve been lucky, I’ve found a lot more good ones in the last couple of years than I probably did in all my prior collecting years combined!
For about the 65th time, thank you, Sean! I truly appreciate it!
