It's nothing compared to some blogs out there, yes I am talking about you Night Owl, but I am pretty proud of myself in reaching that milestone. Not something I had ever expected. Now onto 2 million! That I didn't say in the voice because it just wouldn't sound right.
I was just going to do a quick post updating the big milestone, but then a mail day from Billy over at Cardboard History arrived and figured I should get that posted sooner than later. I think all of us bloggers know how easy it can be to fall behind with posting a mail day thank you.
Billy had contacted me over the weekend about some football cards he wanted to pass on and obviously not going to turn those down. A couple days later, man he is quick at shipping, he not only sent those, but also a couple surprises as well.
Let's take a look.
Some guys from the 90's I remember watching including a George Teague rookie I didn't have. A couple of these guys in Dishman and Tuggle didn't quite get the respect they should have. They were decent players. But, that's what happens with a lot of guys sometimes on lesser popular teams.
Morten Anderson kicked in the league forever and ever. Sometimes it felt as if he had kicked since the NFL was created. He was very durable and reliable.
Surprisingly, I didn't have this Keith Hamilton. That doesn't happen too often when it comes to my Giants PC. There was a Melvin Ingram insert rookie card. He is a beast that I was hoping the Giants would find a way to trade for him to use as a JPP replacement since Ingram's contract is up soon with SD but so far no move. In this group as well is Drew Brees and Matt Ryan a couple of great QB's in the same division.
Then came the two surprises!
Sets Of My Childhood needs for my Spx Holoview Heroes set chase. Other than Ex2000 and Ex2001, there is no greater looking sets than Upper Deck's late 90's Spx products.
First is Warriors Joe Smith
Two more off that set needs list that I need to update soon. If you have any help for my sets, you can check out my needs here, https://sportcardcollectors.blogspot.com/p/sets-of-my-childhood.html
A thanks goes out to Billy for the mail day. I hope to have a return one heading your way soon.
I also wanted to thank all of you readers once again who come back and read my daily ramblings.
