Kenner, LA

The Junior Junkie sent these four cards.  That guy has got his brand down, with the custom return labels, business cards, and stamp.  At some point I'm going to make the effort to go out and have a stamp made.  Among the four cards sent was a 2013 Leaf Memories "Gold" numbered to 5.  It's the 1991 Leaf in the upper right corner, it just has some foil added to the front.

I find these things to be gimmicks, but I still pull the trigger on them when the price is right.  Earlier this year a 1987 Topps 2016 buy back popped up on ebay.  I bid about 50x higher than I've ever paid for an '87 Topps Wallach and still lost, which is to say I bid $2.50.  I haven't lost too much sleep over it.

Thanks for the cards, and congratulations on your recent addition T.J.

Updated Totals: 

1988 Topps: 544
1990 Donruss: 313
1990 Fleer: 258
2013 Leaf Memories Gold: 2
