A few days ago I showed off the first part of a package I received from Dinged Corners which finished off my A&G set. I also alluded to a second part of the package which deserved its own post. Since you all have been waiting with bated breath, here is that post.
Besides the A&G base cards, there was a Gretzky from 99/00 UD Gold Reserve Hockey, which I didn’t scan because my scanner hates the Gold Reserve sets. I on the other hand, love them. And Gretzky is always awesome. I like to remember Gretzky’s 2002 Olympic team, and not the crappy team he put together in 2006 (I hate Todd Bertuzzi).
I also got a nice letter from Lucy and Patricia (I love getting letters, but it is always weird to see someone signing my name at the bottom of one). And I got my first Josh Hamilton sketch card.
I was going to post a sketch card I drew for comparison, but the people from the internet called and specifically requested that I not share my artwork with the world. Suffice to say, I struggle to draw a straight line. I’m not sure which member of the Dinged Corners family drew this card, but they did a fantastic job. It looks like it is modeled off his 2008 Topps A&G card. Thanks very much to Dinged Corners for this card (and the others). Its an amazingly unique and awesome card to have. I think its great to have bloggers out there who are willing to share their talent and time to add to other’s collections.
