Package from Topps85401

I got a package a few weeks back from a fellow YouTuber, Nate, who runs the YouTube channel Topps85401. Nate is a huge Giants fan and is a Barry Bonds super collector.

Nate sent a bunch of great cards from the 80's and 90's, plus some great D-Backs including these two 2012 Gypsy Queen cards of Ian Kennedy.

I didn't even know that there was a Kennedy SP, so it was nice that Nate, not only sent them to me, he also labeled the penny sleeves so I would know. 

Nate also sent this awesome 1989 Baseball Talk over-sized card of Hank Aaron featuring the 1954 Topps rookie card. 

Here's the back. There was a special machine that you could put these in and it would play sound. I actually had one of them back in 1989 or 1990. Wish I still had it, but I'm glad to have this in my collection!

Nate also sent me this 1964 Topps Giants card of Carl Yastremski. Giants is because it's big, not because of the San Francisco Giants. This thing is really cool! 

Nate also sent me a book to read and pass on to another YouTuber (sorry bloggers) called Mint Condition: How Baseball Cards Became an American Obsession. I read it and loved it. I would recommend it to any baseball card collector. 

A big thank you to Nate for an awesome package!
