Right Place, Wrong Time (for a Secret Santa Post)

2019 Secret Santa

Yes, I should have posted my Secret Santa gift last month but rumor has it that it’s better late than never. Thanks to Jon of A Pennysleeve for your Thoughts, a total of 32 card bloggers and Trading Card Database (TCDB) members had a Secret Santa gift exchange. My Secret Santa turned out to be a longtime TCDB member/guru who goes by the user name “vroomed”. If I remember correctly, I received my gift one or two weeks before Christmas. vroomed sent a nice stack of Dodgers cards from various products:

Assorted 2014 Topps Heritage Dodger cards

Whoa, some impressive 2016 Topps Heritage cards here including two Chrome (Kershaw and Puig), a Purple Chrome, and Action Variation and a relic card!

More assorted Dodgers cards

All of the above cards look really nice. I especially appreciate that vroomed sent me some serial-numbered cards including the 2015 Topps Gold Brandon League.

Yet more Dodgers cards and a sticker

The Bowman’s Best Hi Def Heritage Atomic Refractor Corey Seager is a very thick card. The two Chasing History inserts are from the 2013 Topps Mini set. The Sandy Koufax insert is a 1987 Topps Mini insert from the 2012 Topps flagship set. The Fernando Valenzuela is a 1985 O-Pee-Chee sticker. Thanks so much, vroomed!

Both vroomed and Jon deserve a super Stadium Fantasium standing ovation and sincere gratitude for the Secret Santa gift exchange–you guys rock!

  1. I picked up a collection that had a few of those Bowman’s Best Hi Def cards. Dang they’re thick. Not even sure how to store them.

    1. It is a really nice card but storage could be a problem. If storing in a sleeve/toploader/page, then chipping becomes a potential problem.

Comments are appreciated!
