My first 1954 Bowman! John customized this prize pack to include vintage Yankees so it was even better than I thought it would be.
This Johnny Kucks has seen better days, but it's still a really cool card to have in my collection.
This is only my second or third card from 1959 Topps. The more of these I see in hand, the more I like this design.
I love the classic photo in front of the Yankee Stadium facade!
I don't have a 'turning two' mini collection, but this might be my favorite of the prize pack because of the awesome, vintage double play!
As far as cards go, John also included some Durham Bulls cards. This Assenmacher is, by far, my favorite of those. It was issued in 1985 by the Durham Herald Sun(the local newspaper).
As great as the cards were, the real gem of the package was a book.
This pocket encyclopedia is worn and fragile, but it is incredibly interesting to gently flip through its pages reading about baseball history, as told in 1956.
Thanks for a great contest John! I'm not sure where you found that encyclopedia, but it is a great piece of history that I am happy to have. By the way, I know that I owe you a bunch of cards. Sorry it is taking me a while to get things together, but I hope you'll find what I send is worth the wait.
