Two cards in two packages arrived recently (well, a lot more than that, as you will see in the coming days). I figured I would briefly cover them.
I had a redemption for a Felix Doubront Triple Threads card some time ago that I never received (I requested a substitute after waiting for more than two years and received an Allen Webster, a decent card, but not what I had in mind). I always felt a little bit bad about not getting that card because I was a big fan of Doubront during his time in Boston. I will likely cover him more in depth some time soon. Suffice it to say, this card makes me feel a little better about never getting that last card.
And next up was this:
This is a reprint, of course. It is a reprint of a 1928 playing card set. Buddy Myer was a rare bright spot for the Red Sox in the 1920's, spending almost two seasons there from 1927 to 1928, which were his only two seasons with a team other than the Washington Senators. Myer led the league in stolen bases with 30 in 1928 and will also likely be covered in more depth in short order.
