When the end result shows up in the mail in bunches, it makes the soreness in the morning and the aches and pains when I roll into my condo at 11:30pm each night worth it. My boss at the piano store (where I have my packages sent) was kind enough to drop them into my Jeep while I was at work this evening. I opened them up and suddenly had a pile of rarities on my counter. Between this and a visit from a certain very attractive female this evening (hopefully more on that later), life is definitely very good right now.
For those that aren’t familiar, in that picture are the following : PlayFul Super Amigos Penguin (alternate card artwork than any other release), Gulliver Robin (alternate card artwork than any other release), 33-back Green Arrow (one of the rarest production releases from the Super Powers line…certainly less than 10 known to exist), and one of the catalog-exclusive Secret Wars 2-packs (sealed baggies!).
A big "thank you" to Joe G. for trading me the Robin & Penguin. He’s a stand-up guy and really appreciates my passion for this line. Hopefully sometime in the future I can repay him 10-fold. He’s one of the reasons I stay at AFI…a really cool cat.
A good day, and now I can sleep.
