Another Clandestine Hookup with the Mistress

Ok, it wasn't really a secret. Spankee posted the heck out of his group break. Surely by now you won't be surprised that I took the Rangers.

I received a great variety of different products and if I wasn't being a lazy you know what, I'd be able to tell you how many of these helped with my want lists. Here, for your card viewing pleasure, is a 5 card sample of the greatness bestowed on my by My Cardboard Mistress.

How about we start with some junk wax? This 1988 Donruss Pete Incaviglia proves that Mike Napoli wasn't the first one in Arlington with a manicured beard. Now that I think about that, I'm a little uncomfortable that I even noticed it. Let's just move right along.

How about a nice Charcoal parallel of two guys who are part of the Rangers front office and one guy who would never sign with Texas as a free agent. Inexplicably, I can't get enough of the 2008 Heroes set. I've bought numerous discounted blasters. Dont' judge me. I feel bad enough about it already.

It wouldn't be a random group break if I didn't post something shiny. This is a 2009 Bowman Chrome card of the newest member of the Rangers starting rotation, Neftai Feliz. You might have heard of him.

I'm not peeling the protective coating from this 1999 Finest Rusty Greer so don't even think about suggesting it.

The only Rangers hit of the break was a nice one. This 2001 A Piece of History Game Used Bat Ivan Rodriguez card is marred only by the congratulations note on the back with the name Richard P. Williams attached to it. Otherwise, it's a great card and I like the bat window in the shape of a baseball diamond.

Adam, aka Spankee, thanks for a great break. It was a lot of fun to follow along and I appreciate all the great cards.


  1. Glad you enjoyed it. I'm glad I picked up that random bonus pack so you could get that Rodriguez.

  2. Did you ever notice how seldom junk wax appears on people's blogs, relatively speaking?

    (I said that in an Andy Rooney voice).

    I might have to do a month of nothing but junk wax posts.
