Giants Cardboard: Jones Sent My Way

I may or may not have mentioned it on here but I was dealing with a lot of pain from Kidney Stone surgery and two rounds of it.

I have had some well wishes and some surprise mail days to help keep my head on straight in the meantime. 

One of these mail days came from @CShop14f who passed along some Daniel Jones to me.

Leaf Draft All-American

Absolute Introductions rookie insert

And Absolute base rookie.

Thanks for the note, which I will mention this now that I have kept every note I have ever been given in my almost 9 years of blogging, and for the Jones cards. They helped keep my mind occupied while I was healing.

How about you guys? Do you hold onto notes that other collectors have sent to you?

  1. Sorry to hear you're still dealing with some pain - hope relief comes soon! I tend to keep some of the more personalized notes I get. The simple "thanks for the trade" types I don't.

    1. I keep them all lol. Probably why my wife considers me a hoarder

  2. Hope you feel better soon. I've kept a few notes over the years, but like the other Matt wrote... not the basic "thanks for the trade" note.

    1. I keep them all, not sure why. Maybe will need to narrow them down but sometimes it's about the unique writing and maybe it's like getting any autograph

  3. I don't keep notes, but I do wish that I had started keeping them from the start, they would've made for a fun scrapbook.
