Watertown, NY

This envelope bearing the Syracuse, NY postmark (home of The Great Jim Boeheim) was sent by The Nightowl of Watertown, NY.  It's nice grouping of 9 cards including one Expo.  I suspect Greg's mailbox has more or less turned into the international exchange for Dodger doubles, and as a result, he usually sends me Wallach cards where Wallach is with the Dodgers.  The Expo is a nice change of pace, and also perhaps the most miscut '87 Donruss I have seen.  Anything unique is a welcome sight when your dealing with close to 400 copies of the same card.  It's also the first '94 L.A.P.D. Dare card I've ever been sent (and first time I've added one since 2012).  Greg apparently gets so many Dodger duplicates, that he has extra L.A.P.D. cards to send out.  Thanks for the cards Greg.  I'd really like to see a post in which you interview your mail carrier and hear if he (or she) as any theories on all the mail that gets sent your way.

  1. I think we're in a cycle where the mail carrier changes every week, so I doubt they're even aware. A couple years ago I had the same mail carrier for several years, and I had heard things about him that would make me never want to interview him.
