I need to get a little bit better at keeping this updated however it was an odd week. Wife headed back to NoDak and left me with the two monsters…er…offspring…er…children…er…the only two reasons I exists. Anyway, you get the point, I was busy.
Mailbox was emptier than I had hoped this week but did have these two in the box on Friday I believe. Both were eight day turnarounds.

Somewhere during this process I opened rac pack #3 – we’re cranking right along but there are quite a few that are being set aside to go out with others later in the project. Those are the All-Stars and/or folks that had more than one card released in this set so I am guessing the return rate on those is going to be much worse.
Have currently received back 13 Signed cards for the project.
Only one daily rambling for today as I didn’t stumble upon anything noteworthy and/or didn’t remember to write it down…my bad.
Item #29 – The first baseball game I ever saw live was the Minnesota Twins vs the Baltimore Orioles late in the 1987 season. My sister was in a gymnastics group (The Gym Dandies) that performed in the outfield during an inning break at some point in the game on Saturday. Dad and I left the rest of the family in the hotel on Friday night to catch this game and saw Frank Viola win his 16th game in front of a packed house in the Metrodome.
