I did get, however, another ball for my HOF signed baseball collection. My mom and I were killing time before one of our signings, and decided to check out a vendor who had a bunch of signed baseballs. I picked up this Sparky Anderson for only $65.00, which I thought was a great price. He was the only Hall of Famer that I needed that he had for sale.
Anderson (b. 1934 - d. 2010) played in the majors in 1959 for the Phillies but is best known as a manager who took the Reds and Tigers to World Series championships. Anderson managed the Reds from 1970 to 1978 and then the Tigers from 1979 to 1995. He won the World Series in 1975 and 1976 with the Big Red Machine and 1984 with the Tigers. He had a career won/loss record of 2,194 - 1,834. As a manager, he compiled 19 full seasons with a winning record.
Anderson was elected to the Hall of Fame in 2000 by the Veterans Committee.

In the package with this card was a few cards that Caleb sent along as a Christmas gift. There were a few Orioles parallels in there, along with a diamond parallel from 2011 Topps of Sandy Koufax.
That actually wraps up the Christmas gifts that I got, well into January. Thanks for the trade and gifts, Caleb!

The above Roy Halladay relic card is a really nice one; I like the blue and black background.
Michael also sent a 1990 Score Ken Griffey, Jr. which I will hold onto for a while.
Thanks for the nice Christmas package, Michael. Again, you didn't have to send anything, but I sincerely appreciate the thought!

The above 1965 Topps Brooks Robinson was the biggest surprise of all. I already owned a Brooks card from '65, but I was more than happy to take another. I really love this design, and who can refuse Brooks vintage cards?
Museum collection always looks great, and I feel like I never have enough cards of Frank represented in my collection.
What might have been the best part of the package, was how Bryce included a separate envelope for my son, Chris. Inside was an assortment of Giants cards, including what seems like a near complete team set of orange parallels from 2014 Bowman. I love care packages for myself, but when you also include Chris, well, you really win me over (not that Bryce needed to win me over at this point).
Thanks so much for the care package, Bryce! I really appreciate it, and I know who I'm going to first when I get any Brewers hits, from now on!

Noah gave me the above Hunter Harvey auto from Bowman Sterling as part of a deal, and included it with the Christmas package. The Christmas stuff was mostly Orioles for my PC, many of them being Cal Ripken cards. Noah is a really awesome guy, and really came through.
I sent him a really nice 2014 Museum Collection triple relic auto of Wilin Rosario for his PC. Is it just me or was Museum Collection one of the best products of 2014? Either that or Bowman Chrome.
Really, though, thanks for the Christmas package, Noah! I really appreciate it!

Thanks for the deal, Trevor! I really appreciate the card, and thanks for helping me replace a damaged card!

By the way, I will NOT be pursuing the set of these. I have learned my lesson with my Brooks patches. Maybe someone will come along with the R that I need. One of these days.
