OK, I just noticed while writing this that the envelope is dated, May 25. Hmm. Well color me confused. Maybe this got lost along the way. The envelope does look a bit weary. Anyway, you weren't waiting at your mailbox for this to come so why don't we just get to the important bits. Here's what the World Series Champion Chicago Cubs (sorry) sent.
If you've read any of my previous Fan Pack Fun posts you'll know that I appreciate just about anything that a team is nice enough to mail out.
The child in me, and isn't that really what it's all about, appreciates seeing the official letterhead stationary. This year is even more special because of what the letter references.
This nice glossy Lester measures 5 x 7. It's blank backed.
When I opened the envelope I didn't guess what this was.
So I'm not sure what happen mail-wise but all's well that ends well. The Christmas card was a pleasant surprise. I don't have a lot of World Series commemorative stuff so this goes right to the top of the list.
I do have fan packs from other teams. I will share them in days to come unless you all hit snooze at some point. In all honesty, and if you know me this won't surprise you one bit, I have a number of envelopes that are still unopened. Along the same lines I was thinking of taking some new pictures of my legendary "pack stash". It's had some departures but also some arrivals since the last time I showed it to you (and let you make fun of me).
