My Kind of Grab Bag

I recently received a "grab bag" of cards from Scott over at Smed's Cards. It was more like a box than a bag. Actually, it was most like a 5 pound brick than anything.

I can't even begin to tell you how much fun it was to go through this box. There were plenty of Rangers mixed in, but it had a little bit of everthing. There were blocks of 2008 Topps, 2007 Ultra, 2009 Upper Deck, 2007 Upper Deck, 1986 Topps, 1999 Pacific, 1993 Pinnacle, a smattering of 1975 and 1976 Topps and everything in between. It was great! I could never do the package justice, but here are just a few of the cards I pulled out.

From left to right we have: 1991 Stellar Star Will Clark, 1994 Flair Will Clark, 2009 Bowman Neftali Feliz #61/500, 2011 A&G Elvis Andrus, 2011 A&G Nelson Cruz jersey, 2011 Topps sparklies Ian Kinsler and Neftali Feliz and last, but not least, a 2004 Heritage Chrome Raffy Palmeiro #1947/1955!

That would have been enough, but the box had some vintage goodies in it as well.

A couple of 1972 Topps Rangers, Casey Cox and Tom Grieve, a 6-pack of 1975 Topps, and a few 1976 Topps cards, including the Lefty Grove All-Time Stars card.

If you got one of these "grab bags", I can't wait to see some of the stuff you got. If you didn't...well, you missed out!

Thanks a bunch Scott. Going through these was great fun!!
