20 And 21!!! And not quite 22.

To all of you on the edge of their seat, for those who simply cannot go on without an update, and of course for those keeping score at home...Her is an update on my quest for 24 Derrick Mason Patch cards.

Number 20 on my quest for 24 is a 2008 Playoff Absolute Memorabilia Absolute Heroes patch card.  It is 8/50.  It is the standard cut from the edge of the number, Probably the bottom of the 8 based on the slight curve.

The 21st is a 2006 Leaf Rookies & Stars Standing ) patch , 11/25.  As most patches are, it is the jersey number.  This one looks to be the inside of the 8 or the 5 of the Ravens black jersey.

And in at not quite 22, this 2006 Absolute Memorabilia Tools of the Trade card features pieces of his glove a shoe, 39/50.  It is a terrible scan...sorry.  I have always dug the TOT cards, and when I can get my hands on one featuring a player I collect or root for, all the better.

I just won #22 on ebay, so you will see it as soon a s my mailbox does!

One Good Turn Deserves Another!

Just like clockwork, I sent cards to my dad, and what do I get in return?...a package from my father!

You can never have too many Raymond Berry cards, and Romo is still tough to get cheap.

Where I live, Ravens are also not cheap, Ed Reed is a future HOFer, and Mason should be but will probably end up looking in from the outside.

Thanks Pop!

Package For Pop

Birthday and Holiday gifts are easy with my father. Since he collects cards, and I collect cards, we never have to go out searching for the perfect gift.  Here is a sample of what I sent to him. I am not worried about him spoiling the surprise reading this post because he has already opened the package!

I bet you couldn't guess that Pop is a Philly fan!
