Several days ago I received an email from a collector named Dennis, that had some Ivan Rodriguez cards he thought I might like. He had some I needed and said that he would send them to me right away. Plus, he said he would have some extras in there I might like as well. He was right.
He sent me the Rodriguez cards he mention and added a couple of more. That was just the beginning. Dennis must be a regular reader of my blog based on the player selection he included as a surprise. First off there were a couple of Ian Kinsler inserts, followed by five Hakeem Olajuwon cards. I didn’t have either one of the Kinslers and three of the Olajuwons were new for me. Next up was a Michael Young card followed up by a Bruce Matthews Hall of Fame card.
Four of the cards had Pudge in his gear which I like a lot and one had a great shot of him batting. Rodriguez has a very distinctive batting stance and follow through. Man I miss getting to see him play all the time. One of the things I would like to have the chance to do is to take infield with Pudge. It would be a blast to run situations like my high school baseball coach had us do in practice.
Anyway, back to reality. Thanks for the great cards Dennis. I am still putting your package together, I know what I want to send you I just have to find them. I’ll finish it up this weekend and get it sent out on Monday.
