I was in love with this consignment, and was really hoping it would go higher, but once it sold, my concern became how on earth to get them to you without them all shattering. I wound up ordering extra heavy-duty bubble wrap and sandwiching them together around corrugated cardboard in small groups, and then bubble-wrapping the hell out of the whole thing.

So glad everything arrived intact. They are unbelievably cool, for sure.


I can't express enough what a joy it was unwrapping each bundle. It was slow and a I felt like a 10 year old on Christmas. I spread my excitement with my wife and kids, calling them in my office every 5 minutes to look at s new favorite. Along with their eye rolling, I saw a spark of intrigue and mystery in each of them. They even engaged in questioning baseball history, quite rare from them.

I spent as much time on the backs as the printing surfaces. All the information needed to drive me nuts endlesslingly trying to identify any scrap of their history.

Thanks for providing me with, I'm sure, a lifetime of enjoyment.
