Belated Mail Day - Part 2: A Package From Baseball Dad

Really, honestly, you people are too kind. I mean that.

Especially you, Baseball Dad.

Although I consider the package I received late last week the first part of a "cards to be named later" trade, I was very heppy with what I found.

First of all, thank you for helping my narrow my 2009 Goudey base set search down to 5 cards by sending over Matt Holiday.

That alone would have me on the lookout for any cool Indians cards to send you way. However, your generosity didn't stop there. You sent along a stack of Brewers and Twins cards for me to pour over and enjoy. And I did.

I wanted to post my favorite from the stack.

It's a Cecil Cooper Purina card, licensed by Topps. It's a great photo of Coop, who was one of my favorite childhood Brewer heroes. The best part is I'll get to spend a little bit of today tracking down the origins of this set and maybe trying to find more.

Thank you also for the other Brewers and Twins cards that I'll certainly be able to use in trade with my good friends Cole and Alex. These kids enjoy getting adding to their Brewers and Twins binders and usually have some cards I need for sets to trade. It's a win-win situation.
