Awesome package from my SS. Nicely wrapped...what are the chances that you could gift someone who has been collecting for 40+ years FIVE cards and he not have a one of them. Very pleased. Merry Christmas!

Got a really nice T205 Sheckard with a Hassan back and some really interesting short news paper clippings from 1907. Interesting to see how reporting has changed through the years. Also a cool 1907 picture of Orval Overall. Thanks so much SSanta.

Okay, my SS stunned me. MANY moons ago (many years ago?) I had made a buy-it-now offer for a center panel of a T205 Collins Easily Safe so I could Frankenstein it together with the two end panels. My SS somehow remember this and sent it as my present. And sent along a British set of Sports of all Countries.

Great stuff Santa! (And what a remarkable memory you have!)

Merry Christmas to All!
Patrick

Great pack of cards from Santa.



Inside was a T213 Coupon card of Cubs star Heinie Zimmerman. My first card from that set.



Also included were these three Cubs cards from a set whose name eludes me. I saw them recently at a show where the dealer had the set for sale and liked them. Great addition to my collection of Cubs greats!



Also got three sharp 69 Topps cards for my set.



Also got a Riggs Stephenson matchbook cover card.

Much appreciated, Santa. Loved my pack of cards!

Happy Holidays to all.

Mike

Thanks to my S Santa for sending me a very nice "65" Topps H R Leaders. Besides one of my collecting favs, Mantle, the card features my all time player Harmon Killebrew who lead the league with 49 bombs in "64". Happy New Year to all fellow Net 54`ers, keep safe and enjoy your families !!!

I apologize, my short term memory has taken a big hit due to the brain cancer. If I try to keep one thing in my memory, it works best. But... God is good, and I remembered 3 things on this!!!

This is actually my favorite "web event" every year. I was not able to participate this year because, frankly, I am having the memory problem I just mentioned. Had I simply written it on scratch paper or even sent myself an email, it would have been done. But even *not* doing it, seeing the pics of what you guys got gives me a big stinkin' smile!

And while my short-term memory needs a little growth, I can say that the gifts I DID receive before were wonderful, plus about 3 years ago (?), Derek sent me a present *in addition* because he rocks! He sent several items that he knew I specifically wanted, and I again give him HUGE thanks.


So, here are the three things I remembered from this post:

1) There was someone who got 3 Cubs cards but couldn't remember the set. Those are from the 1936 S & S Game. I love that one, still own a set, and think it absolutely offers the best deals of any pre-war issue

2) One of you said you did not receive your gift. Did you yet? If Sean can let me know anyone who did NOT get a gift, what was on their wish list, and their address, I would be happy to send what I can. See #3 as to why.

3) Sean, I first want to thank you so incredibly much for arranging this. Just the few pics posted this far again remind me how generous every person on this board is. I know the rules state a $25 value, but to me they ALL look far above that! You are a class act. If no one stepped up yet to take this on next year, I would love to. No way in the past, but as the doctors have said I cannot work again, if they are right, I can certainly do this. There is a chance my brain could get worse, or honestly that the cancer returns quickly and God takes me home soon, but I am not living life like either of those will happen. So I would just say make sure I can still do it around Nov. 1st or so and teach me then. Also, Sean, I know it was three months ago you (quietly) offered to help sell my cards, as nine months of living in hospitals still costs literally millions of dollars, even with insurance. If you still want to, let me know. I can't go into all the reasons why I still haven't started this, but I pray that God helps me to finally be able to sell in January. And referring to #2 above, if I can give something to make sure everyone has their gift, I would be happy to do this.

Mark

Here are my gifts from my Secret Santa. I typically collect and sell 50's and 60's cards, but was up for something different and "Santa" delivered. I've never owned a tobacco card and had only seen a couple in person. I don't have any idea what the "value" of these items are, but my reaction when opening was this is really cool stuff, and stuff I wouldn't normally seek out. So thanks Santa!

Default Net54 SS comes through big time

Celebrated Christmas just in the Saint Nick of time on New Year's Eve, so a little sluggish on posting what I received. A bounty of issues, from a real nice Diamond Stars of Pie Traynor, a B18 blanket, a Diamond matchbook, a R311 premium of the 1935 AL All Star team, and a Carstens Hygrade instructional booklet. Because the booklet mentions 'Little, Junior, Midget, Babe Ruth players' I can literally state that I received items featuring both Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig...can anyone top that?

Thanks SS Santa!

Brian
