Mailday of game-used baseballs also includes a vehicle title? Oops …

Monday was a glorious mailday. I received a handful of game-used baseball cards and a few packages of new Clayton Kershaw cards for my collection.

But one of these packages contained something completely unexpected …

I ripped opened a large bubble mailer that I knew contain two new balls for my game-used collection and removed the balls. And then I peered inside the bubble mailer and found something I KNEW had to have been sent my mistake — the title to the seller’s truck.

Had I been a person of no morals, I could have made this an absolute nightmare situation. But that’s not who I am. I immediately reached out to the seller — who is part of a Facebook group for game-used collectors — and confirmed it was indeed a mistake. He offered to send me money in exchange for the title; but if you know me that’s not necessary. It was an honest mistake; the paperwork will be in the mail in the morning.

The moral of the story for us all is to make sure that in the haste of packaging up collectibles, make sure you don’t accidentally include important documents as packing materials.

So, what was supposed to be in the package? Two new additions to the HBP Collection — Shelby Miller’s first-thrown HBP, and the first ball that struck former prospect Mike Olt.
