A Care Package From Frankie
Drew met up with Frankie, of the blog: My Life in The Sports Card Hobby, at a card show in New York and told me about it the next day. It was really cool to see Drew kind of mentoring a young person in the hobby, much like I had done with him over the years. After Drew told me about his blog, I went and read a bunch of Frankie's posts. He has an amazing collection, even though he is a Yankee fan. So, to introduce myself to him, I sent Frankie a care package consisting of one item that I thought he might need for his Yankee autograph collection. I was right, he hadn't acquired the auto I had sent, so I did a good job of finding something that helped him out.
While I didn't want anything in return, Frankie insisted that he send me back a care package, and I got it a few weeks later after a little big of a blogosphere mix-up. You see, the package Frankie meant to send to me, actually went to Drew, and I received a package intended for Drew. We laughed it off, and fixed the issue and now I have a few amazing cards that Frankie had sent my way (via Drew).
The above 2012 Bowman All Star Futures Game relic of Dylan Bundy is a really great card. The card is numbered 176/199 and looks really awesome in person.
Thank you so much for the package, Frankie. I really hope that you have enjoyed your time in the card community so far. You have gravitated toward a great mentor in this hobby (Drew) and I hope you can grow your collection into something far more amazing than it already is!
