Big Greg and Little Willie

P-Town Tom hooked me up with cards above (in March).  Starting off with Willie Wilson and Alex Gordon at the top -- those are beautiful cards.  I love the "Spring Fever" cards every year, but never manage to get to a hobby shop for that promotion, so I am very thankful for any KC ones that come my way.  No, these cards aren't minis...they are regular-size.

So what does that make the Greg Holland?  That thing is a 5 X 7!  It's huge, but the hilarious part is that it came in its own giant toploader!  Nicely done, Tom!!  :-)

He also sent me a similarly-gigantic one of Alex Gordon that is not shown in this post.  Why not?  As soon as I opened the envelope, my 5-year-old son started begging for it.  AG #4 is his favorite player, so he thought it was amazing.  I asked him what he wanted it for, and he said he would put it up above his bed.  We got my roll of blue tape, and stuck it right there on the wall, where it sits to this day.

Chipz on Sale

Public Service Announcement -- My Target has Topps Chipz marked down from $2.00/pack to $1.50/pack.  Does yours?

At that, I had to try my hand at one pack.  I picked one up and realized that it was sticking to another pack...had to be a magnet chip in there.  Bought it, and ripped it with my son the other night.  The magnet was "Pirate Parrot"....That's a pretty fun pull to get a mascot magnet.  He immediately seized it an stuck it on his closet door handle.  Fine by me.  :-)
