It usually starts out with a parade, there is fun raffle auction where you can buy tickets and win prizes, there is good food and vendors set up throughout the town. It sounds like a big thing, it's really not, but locally it is.
One year there was a vendor set up with baseball cards I purchased from. Will he ever return again? I am not sure. But, at least I have some baseball cards to show off today thanks to a contest mail day from @RMcardsfan.
I know it's sometimes hard to understand my collecting. How many fans do you see collect cards from a hated rival? Well, that's me. Devers has been on fire just like a good portion of this years rookies.
Here's another one of those great rookies
Another Devers. This time a refractor.
And speaking of refractors.....
A big thanks goes out to @RMcardsfan for the mail day. If you guys aren't following him yet on Twitter, go hit that follow button. A nice guy and generous collector.
