More Ginter minis!

This is going to be a short post since I'm writing this on less then two hours sleep because I thought it was a good idea to stay up late to watch the playoffs. How about Halladay? What a game he had!
Anyway I got an unexpected package from John of Pursuit of 80's(ness) the other day. In the package was a stack of 2010 Ginter and also six new minis. Theres no pictures today since my camera is still without batteries.
He sent me two regular backs of Papelbon (SP) and Gallardo. Really happy with the Papelbon since I didnt expect any Sox cards from a Sox fan.
There were also two Ginter backs of Matt Holliday and Matsui.
One black bordered card also featuring Matsui.
Finally a National Animal card of New Zealand featuring the most fierce and dangerous animal ever... the Sheep.
Thanks for the cards John, expect something from me within the next few days.
I picked up a Topps Chrome hobby box last night! and was refunded for it a few hours after paying. I had a feeling that was going to happen since the guy was only charging $8 for shipping rather than the expected $15 to $25.
Its probably a good thing he refunded me since I've spent way too much this month on cards but at the same time a little disappointed.

2010 Topps Triple Threads Adam Lind Emerald

All mine!!
This will be my 89th Lind card, although I only have 73 in hand. My next few mail days are going to be amazing!
And to make thing even better the Giants finally beat the Padres in a really exciting game to clinch the NL west. Shame I couldn't watch it live since my wife insisted that watching House and CSI would be much more entertaining and I couldn't record it either since she was also recording another episode of CSI.
Luckily the game is being repeated right now and even though I know the score the game is still fun to watch.
