A week or so ago, Tom from The Angels, In Order commented on one of my posts that he could almost finish off my 1986 Topps set! When I got home yesterday, there was a beautiful sight (I love PWEs) waiting on me. I recognized the return address (more on that shortly) and knew what was inside.
Included were 11 of the remaining 13 cards that I needed for the set. I'm down to the final two! I only joined the blogging community (with this blog) less than four months ago, but this is the second blogger that has sent me cards for my set. I have quickly grown to enjoy the interacting with others that truly enjoy the hobby and aren't all about the newest, shiniest card and thinking about themselves. You guys (and ladies) are great! I hope that in time y'all will feel the same about me.
I had never interacted with Tom before but I thought I knew who he was, at least among blogs. I felt that I'd seen posts on Tim Wallach and that Tom lived just a few miles from me. I was right and he lives just a city over. I've said it before and will again, but it's funny how the interwebz can point out both how large and small the world is at the same time.
I have a couple of cards in mind to send back to you, Tom. Now that I have your address, be on the lookout soon!
Happy collecting, everyone!
