TTM sucess and a surprise

In just 10 days Drew Macias returned the Padres team card above and the individual card below.  I had watched him come up through the Padres system and was disappointed when he ended up with the D'backs.  This was the first year that I can remember him having a major league card.  I would have like the card above more if Topps had said who everyone on it was.  Or if an 8x10 version was available.
Today when I got home from work I had an envelope with my handwriting on it and a package from GCRL.  The card below was in the envelope. GCRL had sent me an autographed copy of Steve Garveys autobiography, along with a bunch of Padres cards including several copies of a Bip Roberts card I needed for my PC.  Thanks, Jim, I have some GCRL and OPC stuff accumalating for you.

Its like you read my mind! You seem to know so much about this, like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you could do with some pics to drive the message home a bit, but other than that, this is great blog. A great read. Pbsbo.com
