Ottawa, Ontario

*Update* I missed that a piece of cardboard Angus used for backing had a note on the back.  Please checkout his blog "Dawg Day Cards," which has a focus on the Cleveland Browns.

This package sent by Angus, of Ottawa, Canada, may be one of the more fun and surprising packages that I have ever received.  It was absolutely loaded with odd ball cards that I am in short supply of.  From the earliest in the envelope, and '83 Stuart (my first new one since 2014), to the most recent, a '93 Donruss McDonald's, and everything in between it was awesome.  You may notice there are a lot of small numbers listed in the totals below.  Probably my favorite of the bunch was a well loved 1985 O-Pee-Chee.  By my count, this is the second time he's sent cards, having also mailed me some in December 2015.

In addition to the cards, Angus included a 1984 Expos Postcard (Canadian Version), and and uncut Hostess disk pair.  The Expos Postcards are definitely something I want to track down at some point and put together a run of.  As it stands, this was one was the only one I previously had.  I'll probably stick a stamp on it and send it to Wallach care of the Miami Marlins.  I don't count them as "cards," but they're certainly something I want.  The Hostess disc I do count as a "card," even uncut, which brings the card count for this envelop to 26.  Thank you very much Angus, and please let me know if there's anything I can send in return.

  1. Glad you enjoyed the package. I was surprised to find all the Tiffany cards in one dealer's Expos box at a local show.
