Better Late Than Never

a lot of you have seen the Secret Santa postings that Sarah from A Rookie Card Collector organized. I received mine today. You'd think that it was really late, but when considering the source (beardy), it's not. He decided to mail a package, destination the other side of the continent and a different country, on the 18th of December, expecting it to get here in 6 days. That's beardy for you. Now yes, it was supposed to be a "Secret" Santa, but if the return address of Admantium Maryland, or Strontium Maryland, whatever the hell it was didn't give it away, there's always the tag.
That and the 47 emails consisting of "Did you get it yet?" "How about now?"

Whatever. Let's rip it.

First up, a Jeff Francoeur A&G back mini

I'm not sure if this is the only random Brave card he had laying around, or rather a gentle reminder to me of how we got raped in the trade with the Muts. Knowing beardy, the latter.

Next, a Napoleon Bonaparte mini. Rather random you'd think. But again, it's beardy. He's rather protective of a certain dead president. And I take great delight in slighting him at any opportunity. This card is a reminder that it's not over. It's never over.

Now we're getting somewhere. A bue bordered '09 Topps Chrome Marion Barber. Sweetness.
An '08 Topps Chrome Super Califragilistic XFractor of said beast of a running back.
and the grand finale.
Words need not apply.
A huge thanks to my Secret Santa. And remember kids. James Polk is a pussy. Good night.

Considering I still haven't received TWO trade packages that you supposedly sent me back in July, I don't think my emails were out of line. This is a Tommy Hanson auto we're talking about here.

How pissed would you have been of the Mounties confiscated that package?

Merry Xmas bitch!

see? he's touchy about James Polk.

Yeah, Beardy's always had that weird Polk thing going on. I never really got it.

We love him anyway.

Polk is rad. I mean, he's no Rutherford B. Hayes, but he's still a badass. Nice Tommy Hanson. Merry Christmas to you all.

Beardy, you sent a Hanson Auto to someone who disrespects Polk?? YOU FOOOL

Nice little package there. Tommy Hanson is a nice grand finale.
