    OK, So I have been busy today running all over town taking my step daughter to work, running to the post office and then going grocery shopping for holiday dinners..

    Glad I goofed up and failed to get the Prime Rib without the bones cut so she would complain and have to go back and get them cut..

    Now I can show off an item that I'm sure my Secret Santa was trying to find something that I didn't have of Edgar and he did a pretty good job.. One of the few Game Used Autographed Items I don't have of Edgar..
    What's great about getting something from Millcreek Sports is that on these Edgar items, you get the COA that has his auto on it as well..

    Thanks Starbucks Alex!

    I wanted to keep them but then I'd be in a constant battle of finding you something and then keeping them.

    MTSS was real good to me! Shall we begin??

    Nice BIG box from Santa.

    Inside was a well packed envelope of mystery!
    Attachment 66345

    I pulled it out and it was stuffed!
    Attachment 66346

    Carefully cut the top off with a peak inside....

    4 wrapped packages numbered 1-4!

    Opened up package #1
    Attachment 66349
    2016 Topps Update Jay Bruce All Star Game Patch card! The back of the card says the patch came from his actual All Star Game workout jersey.

    Attachment 66351

    ***PLUS BONUS 4pks of card from Boeing, the space and aeronautical company (presumably Santa's cover employer when not at the North Pole)
    These are really cool as they give you a brief look at a lot of aircraft they've made over the years for the military and commercial flying.
    VERY COOL and I'm going to add them to my non-sports card 3-ring binder.***

    on two package #2
    Attachment 66350

    WOW! Jay Bruce 5x7's from Stadium Club 05/49, Bunt reg 04/49 & Gold version 05/10, Heritage Gold 05/10 and Series #1 RED 1/5
    I've been contemplating these for some time and just havent pulled the trigger.

    I would have been well satisfied with the first two packages. Package #3

    Attachment 66353
    2009 Upper Deck Sweet Spots Jay Bruce autograph card 110/299!
    I love the UD Sweet Spots cards. I've got a few of these but I didnt have any that where numbered to 299 so it will fit nicely next to my UD Sweet Spots Jay Bruce 1/1 I received last year in the MTSS gift exchange.

    And now, as instructed, I saved #4 for last!

    Attachment 66354
    HOLY FREAKIN MOLY! 2014 Topps Tier One Jay Bruce Bat Knob 1/1! This is my first bat knob card. I've seen them on eBay. I've salavated at the thought of one but never added one to my collection. Santa did just that! The picture I have taken doesnt do it justice! This is one of the best Jay Bruce cards I own and it will take it's rightful place in my curio cabinet (picture coming later) next to some other Jay Bruce and various other cards I have.

    Last but not least, Santa included a very nice Snoopy Christmas card wishing my family a very Merry Christmas. (pic forth coming)

    I'd like to Thank my MTSS in California for the very generous gifts. He went way above and beyond my expectations.

    Thank you to all that come to the morning thread just to say Hi and let us all know how your day is going and for letting us all in on a small glimpse of your lives. I find FCB a very relaxing sports collecting site that I visit every day and I feel the knowledge of collectors here are second to none!

    Thanks to [MENTION=10405]Hawk8[/MENTION] (Dustin) for officiating this years MTSS gift exchange

    1st he gave me a bunch of Phillies base/inserts to add to the collection. Surprisingly I needed a lot.



    Up next, we have an eBay 1/1!!!!! Steve Carlton.



    And finally, a beautiful Schmidt auto #2 /5.



    Thanks a lot Mick.

    [MENTION=3275]Lancemountain[/MENTION], thank you Sir!

    First, 6 packs of 1986 Topps which I haven't opened yet but I will and post the results!



    Then, this beauty!


    And another!


    Just when I thought it couldn't get any better, this gem was in the package!


    I was watching that card, ready to make an offer and then it was gone. I was legitimately pissed.
    However, now I am stoked!

    Merry Christmas!!

    Merry Christmas and thank you to my secret Santa, who generously sent me a beautifully sparkly 90's monster for my Vlad PC. This could replace the star on top my tree.

I do have a couple of things to mail out myself, but with my work schedule and working out of town it's been tough.

    Repost of yesterday's mail-


    I get funny looks too. It probably doesn't help that I'm in a smaller town where people are less likely to know about the online postage

    And 3rd a huge huge addition to the PC.


























    Like I said he slayed it. Thanks Mike a million times over. These MTSS's have always been good to me and I hope they are as good to you all.

    Thanks Dustin for picking up where George left off with it. You guys continue to make this a great event.

    Hats off to Pete for finding a card that was at the top of my Felix list. Pics do not do these cards justice, even the back has a refractor coating. Add to that, finding one with a perfectly bold and flawless auto which is really difficult for the set of that year:




    Thanks again Pete, and the guitar pick has already gotten some great use too

    Happy Holidays Fellas!!!
