New Additions from the Night Owl

2009SPXTripleJerseyMatsuzakaSchillingBeckettI’m going to go on record again and state that Night Owl cards has been by favorite blog since I discovered it last year. Is it the best and most informative blog? No. But is it entertaining, one that always keeps my attention? Absolutely. In addition to all of this, Greg — the author of NightOwl — and I have managed to become pretty good trading partners. He wants Dodgers, I want Red Sox; we agree to swap whenever possible. As he noted on his blog earlier this week I sent him a package last week consisting of some vintage Dodgers and a  pair of through the mail autographs (Andre Ethier and Brett Butler) f0r this 2009 SPX  Red Sox Triple Relic.

But as many people in the Blogospehere know, there are many generous card bloggers, and Greg is one of them. He also sent along this care package of Red Sox cards — all of which I needed for  my growing Boston collection.

We’ll start with some of these 2009 Topps Retro cards available only through I’d intended to write something mildly entertaining about each card, but the package contained 24 total cards. I think the images might just speak for themselves.

  1. I’m not the best blog???????????

    Nah, I’m just shooting for entertaining anyway.

    The Jordan was very random, but I went out on a limb thinking you’d like it. Glad you liked the Sox, too.
