War comes to an end

Hope everyone is having a safe and happy warm holidays!  I received so many nice things from my blogging friends and family.  While I would like to take weeks to show off all the goods unfortunately I don't have the extra time these days. 

I did however want to take the opportunity to tip the hat to my arch enemy Mr. Bob Walk the Plank for a great war.  He came in with a flurry at the end and thankfully I withstood his advances...wasn't easy.  My final blow arrived at Bob Walk HQ the day that I received this surprise:

 A very odd shaped mailer.  I've used these size before....Oh man
 Soon after I realized I had been sneak attached and one of my closest allies The Lost Collector had switched sides!!! But this twist of fate landed me a collection cornerstone!  A GAME USED WILLINGHAMER bat!!!
Matthew then followed up his surrender with a parting gift-the most high end Willingham package I've ever received.

Matthew and AJ- I can't thank you enough brothers.  This was a tremendous haul that just blew me a way.  No matter what way my collecting turns I will never be letting go of my Willingham collection and these will always be treasured.

Will I war again? 
Have I identified a potential opponent?
Will my collecting take any surprising turns in 2017?

All will be revealed in due time my friends.  Until then I wish for nothing by health and happiness for you all in the new year!
