I picked up a 10 pack lot of 2006 Upper Deck Special F/X on ebay a few months ago, back when I delusionally had desogns on completing that monster of a base set (1025 cards at 1-2 per pack ha! x_x). They arrived shortly before I sent out my end of a trade with Steve from the awesome White Sox Cards blog. I should have sent it out well before then, but as luck would have it, I pulled a green parallel of Rob Mackowiak. I thought it would be pretty dang cool to throw it in with the rest, so I did. Turns out ol’ boy Steve went to school with him and shared a really cool memory. It started me down a path… of enlightenment. Well, something like that.
This is… insanely late, and I never scanned the cards, but I do have to say thanks, and mention that he completely put my lot to shame with the Cubbies he sent me. As soon as I figure out how, I’m totally putting him on me blogroll. Oh he’s good.
Anyway, I think the point of this post was something to the effect of: Timing is a beautiful thing, no?
