Mail Day Saturday BONUS: A "Custom" Breakdown Cards PWE

I don't know how many times I have said this, but the blogging world is full of great collectors and is a community like no other. Bloggers appreciate the small things in collecting and it's not all about the big hits and money making. We like actually collecting and collecting the stuff that many collectors today may not including base cards. Yes, I said base cards.

I can definitely include myself in that group of unique collecting and collecting things others may not. I mean, what other collector do you know PC's Rodney Hampton in today's world??? Yeah, exactly.

Anyways, Gavin over at Baseball Card Breakdown who I have gotten to know better over the past year, sent me a surprise PWE. I consider Gavin as one of the greater minds in the blogging world right now. He has really creative post ideas such as Wallet Card, Pull Tab Awareness Week, combining dog toys and/or beer with cards and most recently, Handwritten Blog Post challenge. I always look forward to seeing what he comes up with next.

He also has some incredible customs that he does. So that leads me to the next part, what the contents of my PWE contained.

Up first, Eli, Rodney and an Andre Brown rookie card. Gotta check my checklist on the Rodney.
Next, a gallery of Customs. Absolutely huge fan of The Simpsons ones. I grew up watching the show and this was one of my favorite and more memorable episodes. Also helps pad my Griffey PC some more with a unique card most collectors won't have. So Griffey #784.

Speaking of custom Griffey and unique ones, here is a pretty sweet mini custom and Griffey #785.

Remember above how I stated Gavin is one of the greater minds and that he makes incredible customs, he can also do art pretty well to and used a creative "card stock" for it. This one-of-a-kind Rodney Hampton for my PC was creatively done on the back of one of those fake credit cards you get in mailers. Pretty cool and creative.
A big thanks goes out to Gavin for this sweet mail day.  If you haven't checked out his blog yet, I suggest you do so. You never know what you are going to find next.
