Ask, and ye shall receive...

Recently, when Topps Update came out I decided not to buy any. I thought I would try and beg my fellow bloggers to send me their Mariners. This mission was a success. I guess because there was only 8 cards to get. I recently got a few from Play at the Plate. I also got an E-mail from Mark at Collector's Crack saying he was busting a box of Update and any extra Mariners were mine for a simple address. Sign me up for that kind of deal. Yesterday I get this in the mail:

Not only did Mark send me all 8 Mariners in Update, He also sent a full page hand written letter. Dude, that means alot to me when a trader takes the time to write you a note with your cards. I've received notes before, and I try to put a note in mine when I can, but this was way cool. Thanks again for the help Mark!! If anyone can send this man in the cold north some cards of his Brewers or Packers, he will return the favor to you ten-fold. I will do some searching and see what I can come up with for you Mark.


  1. The blogosphere is a great and generous place.

  2. More than welcome, Larry. I'm always willing to help a fellow blogger and collector.
