Who will carry on your cardboard legacy?

Let's get a little heavy this evening.  I recently lost a good friend at work and as it usually does when someone passes from this world it gets some thought going.  A few times before I have thought about the topic of what becomes of our stuff after we are gone.  Many of us are lucky enough to have this answer already deep in the pocket.  The best thing would be to have a child, a sibling, a parent or even a close friend who will treasure your cardboard once you no longer can but... How many of us are in the realm of not knowing whom would carry on your quests?  I find myself in that boat and it makes me think.  Obviously, once we are gone it will be of no consequence when we check out but I'd like to know that someone enjoys my labor of love after that day comes...hopefully a long time from now. 

My friend was also a collector of sorts but he didn't dabble in cardboard.  He was a rabid hockey fan and had quite a bit of cool hockey memorabilia.  His son shared the fandom of hockey and hopefully he will keep these pieces of his dad and treasure them.  He was a good man and I will miss him- RIP Kelly.

So what are your thoughts?  Ever thought on this topic?

Catching up with the Super Traders

I have really dropped the ball recently on ST packages so I'm trying to get caught up!

First up is a nice PWE from my ST CoManager Brian from PATP
 Some very nice and shiny Bravos!  The Kles is numbered!
Always great to add a nice Braves relic

Brian applied the exclamation point with this Willinghammer!

Up next is package that arrived courtesy of Adam from Infield Fly Rule
 Adam was nice enough to send along a whole gaggle of Bravos!
And he threw in this Rafy which will be going into my Rookies Binder!

Thanks to Adam and Brian for the awesome cards!

Let's show off some cardboard! Double Barrell Action

I've fallen so far behind in sharing maildays from all my great cardboard buds I need to get it going!  Tonight I'm going to share one nice surprise from a Super Trader and another selection from my favorite cardboard uncle-Tiny.

Tiny started out with this sweet ROLL TIDE Alumnus
 Not to be outdone is a crazy parallel #'d 3/10 of Kevin
 Tiny knows I dig the old stuff and this one I had to do some study but what a cool card
 HOF bat card from National Treasures!
Tiny also sent one other super sweet card but I'm not showing it...It's destined for one of the Super Traders!

/Coming up next is a sweet bubbler from my favorite Canadian trade partner-Douglas from Buck Store Cards.  Hardly anyone can fill out a bubbler with almost every collecting interest being touched

He starts it off with some Bravos
Coming up next is a Red Bird and a legendary Mav

 DC strikes next with another Bama alumnus!
 Douglas showed off this gem and I was STOKED to hear it was coming my way
 Finally is this great CFL Bama gem.  Always astounded by the Bama finds that he sends my way

Many thanks to Uncle Tiny and DC for these great packages!  One is headed north of the border that I hope will be very well received!

More maildays coming soon!
