A much needed distraction!

First off, I just want to thank everyone for the well wishes for my family and I following the unexpected passing of my mother. I appreciate all the kind words, the thoughts and prayers. Thank you all.

Bru of the blog, Remember the Astrodome, sent me a nice care package to help me take my mind off things.

Bru sent a nice batch of Goldschmidt cards and 5 of the 7 are new to my Goldschmidt collection!

Bru sent a nice selection of 2018 cards, most of which I hadn't seen before.

This Ballpark Landmarks card is my favorite non-Goldschmidt 2018 card from Bru.

Here's a nice bat card of Yasmany Tomas. Tomas has spent all of 2018 in AAA Reno and with his .262 batting average and 14 home runs, it doesn't look like he'll be back in the majors any time soon.

Bru didn't just send D-Backs, he sent cards for two of my player collections.

This Sportflics card features not only Dwight Gooden, but Don Mattingly (a player I collect), Eddie Murray, Ricky Henderson, Roger Clemens, and...

Dale Murphy.

Thank you very much Bru for the cards and the distraction!


  1. You are most welcome, and I'm happy I could provide any momentary distraction from what's transpired. I actually found some more cards for you at the card shop this weekend, so there will be a PWE in your future.

  2. I've been to Chase a couple of times, but I've never gotten that close to the pool. That card is sweet!

  3. Nice of Bru to send you a care package. Condolences on your loss.

  4. I have a little something on the way to you as well. Nice package from Bru!
