Secret Santa 2019 Revealed!

Merry Christmas! (Christmas is a season, not a day, and I'll enjoy wishing people a Merry Christmas until Monday when it really ends!)

For the third straight year, I've participated in a Secret Santa exchange among collectors. This was initially started up by Matt at the former Bob Walk The Plank, but has been organized by Jon over at A Penny Sleeve For Your Thoughts for the past two years.

Just like last year, my Secret Santa wasn't a fellow blogger, but a member of the Trading Card Database. Teresa  (who goes by the handle Terrbear5951) was my Santa this year, and sent me a nice little stack of cards that knocked down one of my set builds to under 20 cards!

Teresa also helped me reach 75% completion on an insert set - only 3 more to go!

Thanks again for the cards Teresa, and thanks one more time to Jon for organizing everything! I hope everyone had a great Christmas and Happy New Year. Here's to more cardboard in 2020!

*****New Blog Alert!*****

Over the holidays I became aware of a new member to our little community. Head on over to Bill's Baseball Card Blog and say hello!


  1. Thanks! Always excited to add a new card blog to my reading list.

  2. I had no idea that you were working on the '89 Fleer set! With so many bloggers having an infinite amount of extras from that one just laying around, I'm kind of surprised that multiple someone's haven't sent you the rest of what you need by now.

    1. I'm only casually working on it. It's one of those sets that I'm just close enough to completing that I'd like to knock it off eventually, but I'm in no rush.

  3. '89 Fleer is one of the better designs after '83 and '85, in my opinion. They used grey borders a lot, but for some reason it always seemed to work out.
