Treasure - Cardboard Junkie Contest Bounty
Getting up early and going to work @ painfully early hours finally paid off as Team Phungo was lucky enough to win a contest run by the good folks over at Cardboard Junkie headquarters. Dayf was also generous enough to send not just the shiny Chrome Prizes but throw in a couple of additional Phillies cards. I have posted the back of the Mantle card which notes that Jim Kaat was Mantle's victim for his 470th dinger. I also posted some of the highlights from the bonus cards sent.
Good contest, Great cards! The Chrome's included a Jeter and first time all-star Geovany Soto. Obviously the Richie Ashburn 01 Topps Archive would make any Phils Phan Giddy, and there were bunches of fun cards including Pat Burrell's Goudey Card, Heritage cards of both Burrell and Gavin Floyd, and some older cards of Jerry Koosman, Warren Brusstar, and George Vukovich. There were a couple of other base cards and prospects mixed in spanning several different card issues - A perfect cross-section of cards. Well Done.
Thanks to Dayf and keep up the Good Work!
