Near Mint Cards

We got a package in the mail awhile back from Nico at Nr Mt. He sent a little something for all of us and guess what! The cards were all near mint!

Nico sent a few football cards for Goose. I'm gonna have to steal the Rod Smith though. I sure wish Brian would have turned out as good as his father, he sure wasn't the second coming of Elway. It's strange that LT has on a red jersey in this card, but not as strange as it will be seeing him in Jets green.

Nico sent me a few Rangers including a couple Michael Youngs that I didn't have. There was also a nice card of Nolan Ryan emerging from a light speed jump to hurl another heater at some poor unsuspecting fool. The Rangers are sure on a tear right now. Let's hope they can keep it up!

Nobie got a bunch of Cubs as he does from most traders. I really like the team photos even though they are kind of small. I wonder why Topps doesn't put them in every year. Seems kinda random when they do or don't.

Nico also included some of Nobie's other favorites. I wonder why Vlad is always so smiley? You think he know something the rest of us don't?

Last but not least, we've got cards for Baby Peas. They include a Moose, a Green Monster, a Phanatic, a Mr. Met and a Byrd. Only one of these was an All-Star. Can you guess which one?

Thanks again for the cards Nico. They were all in very good shape, no dinged corners or wrinkles anywhere. Later.
