Padrographs #1120, #1121 and Christmas Packs #29
Two more custom Padres, sent to their homes and then signed, sealed and delivered yesterday. (Listening to Stevie Wonder sing Signed, Sealed and Delivered as I begin this post). I mailed both of these out on January 12 and they both came back January 28. Miguel Olivo, played in 34 games for the Padres in 2005, he split the season between Seattle and San Diego. This card went to Sacramento and back in sixteen days. Ronn Reynolds played in eight games for the Padres in 1990, the last year of his major league career. Travis (punkrockpaint) transformed Ronn in a Las Vegas Stars uniform into a Padres uniformed Ronn Reynolds. In the same sixteen days that it took Miguel's card to go to Sacramento and come back, Ronn's card went to Wichita, Kansas and came back.
This American Bandstand pack was chock full of people I knew. Chubby Checker, Bobby Darrin, Buddy Holly, Fabian, Annette Funicello and Jerry Lewis. Let's play word association
Chubby Checker-The Twist
Bobby Darin-Mack the Knife
Buddy Holly-Peggy Sue and The Day the Music Died
Annette Funicello-Beach Party Mouseketeer
Jerry Lee Lewis- Great Balls of Fire.
