Mail Day (aka Western Canada Delivers)

Pulling into the driveway after a long, busy, grueling day listening to people whine and complain over the most mundane of issues I was looking forward to a glass of Johnny Walker's finest, putting my feet up and watching the battle of Pennsylvania.

Being greeted at the door by two of the most affection-starved animals on the planet, to hear them tell it, has a way of wiping away the day. So do bubble-mailers!!

Straight from Calgary, Alberta from the hands of the curator of Waxaholic came the very first blog inspired trade for me. 14 more cards designated for the monstrous 800 card OPC Hockey set undertaken this season.

Judging by the sheer fun and challenge that building both the base and parallel set of this issue has been I cannot wait until the Baseball release and starting all over again.

I have to admit that of all the recent expansion teams jerseys the Minnesota Wild appeal to me the most.

Thanks for the help Captain and I'll be getting your package out in the coming days. I'm searching for something specific for you and remembering where it is has become more of a challenge than I anticipated.

One of the things I truly appreciate is when people go the extra mile and do certain things "just because". It doesn't have to be a grand gesture just one that is unexpected. Coupled in with his shipment were two packs that I will be putting aside for a rainy day or when I need to "scratch the itch", so to speak.

While on the subject of unopened packs I recently rediscovered my shoebox of unopened wax. I will be going through it and posting some and maybe opening others. There is one pack in particular that I will be looking for serious input on as to its future.


  1. you're welcome my friend... I hope you are a lot closer to the set than I am...

  2. Your site has now been added to the Sports Card Blogroll.
