Portland, OR

This nice assortment of 14 cards was sent by Kerry of Portland, Oregon.  Included in the bunch is a 1987 Fleer Glossy, though it's even more difficult to tell it's a glossy in the scan than it is in person (which is no easy task either). 

I go out of my way not to show people's home addresses in these scans, and when I mark it on the map, I don't use full names and try to place it near a major intersection rather than on the person's actual location.  However, I can't resist pointing out that Kerry appears to be located a mere few blocks down Cesar Chavez BLVD from another well known card blogger, Gavin of Baseball Card Breakdown.  Perhaps the two of them have crossed paths, if there's a local card shop, I have to imagine they're both regulars.  Who would have guessed Portland to be such a hotbed of card bloggers.

Thanks for the cards Kerry.

  1. Yep, we live near each other and work even nearer, though haven't gotten around to meeting up yet. We actually just did a big trade earlier this month and I felt a little dumb spending $4 on postage when I could probably just drive to his place before the song ended. Someday we'll get around to grabbing a beer or something. We've probably passed each other at the monthly card show and not realized it.

    1. Rod from the cardblog Padrographs also lives around here. Hopefully he'll send you some Wallachs someday and complete the Portland card blogger trilogy for you.

  2. The joke's on us, because there's no local card shop in Portland proper. There's lots of other stores that cater to obscure interests, including quite a few things I'm pretty sure nobody ever needs.
