If I could've found my wife's camera, there would be a photo here of my copy of "And Then There Were Three ...," the 1978 Genesis rock record (kids: records were round, flat discs made out of vinyl in which songs were record ... ah, never mind).
But featuring the inspiration for the title of this post -- Damaso Garcia -- is just as well. The card came in the mail Monday with just one other card. I love getting only 1 or 2 cards in the mail. It's simple, uncomplicated, and no messy clean-up. And it usually comes in an envelope shape that's reserved for bills and other nasty, bummer mailings.
But I believe Ross of Boxbusters used a bubble mailer to send along Garcia, and a night card. Garcia is one of the cards that I need to complete the 1986 Topps set. Very key.
The three that remain are: #102, Joe Orsulak; #500, Rickey Henderson; and #562, Joe Beckwith.
If you have any of these and want to trade, send me an email (I may not reply until Monday or Tuesday. Transactions move a little slower at this time of year).
Meanwhile, if you haven't registered your opinion on the best and worst set of 2008, there are only a few short days to do so. The final results will lead into a post-Christmas countdown, and one lucky collector will receive some cards!
Stay tuned for Dec. 26 when the countdown will begin.
Thanks, Ross, for the cards!
